Cost-effective solutions

Aluminium production

Versatile processes: Our services in the field of aluminium production include material procurement, welding production, blasting and coating work as well as the assembly of components on site. For surface treatment, we use the spray painting process. Cathodic dip painting is possible on request.

Among other things can be manufactured:

  • Platforms
  • Rails
  • Containers and covers
  • Aluminium claddings
  • Custom-made products

Custom-made products

Mechanical processing

We deliver complete. Through cooperation with our local partners, we can supply welded parts with mechanical processing. Turning, milling, drilling, tapping, thread milling and grinding are also possible for complicated external and internal contours.

On-site services

Construction site assembly

We carry out the final assembly of our products on site in close cooperation with our assembly specialists. We realize complex large-scale projects such as steel bridges or other construction projects completely and guarantee a quality and timely project flow.
