THE BEGINNING OF THE ROAD
The ALUEUROPA Company was created when Inespal Extrusion in Alicante closed down. A company of our Group, manufacturer of sprinkler irrigation systems, was an important customer of theirs, and it was the only factory where they could manufacture aluminium tubes up to 14 meters long. In view of the damage it could cause us, they offered us to acquire a 1600 ton press with its corresponding long ageing furnace.
The results of our journey are positive, starting to export in 1998, acquiring a second press of 2200 tons. In 2002 we acquired a third press of 1800 tons.
During the crisis from 2008 to 2014, the financial situation is consolidated, no major investments were made, greatly improving internal operations with the incorporation of more professional teams.
We continued our expansion with the acquisition in 2015 of the company SIPROAL in Logroño, which had two extrusion presses of 1800 and 2000 tons. To continue in 2017 with the acquisition of the company ISOPERFIL in Segovia, which also had two extrusion presses of 1800 and 2200 tons. And finally, in 2018, the production unit of the company EXTRUPERFIL in Seville was acquired, which had 2 extrusion presses of 1800 and 2500 tons.
At the beginning of 2020 an anodizing plant is acquired, which allows us to offer a wide range of finishes with mechanical surface treatments. Later, at the end of 2020, a new 4000 ton press was acquired, adding up to a total of 10 extrusion presses, which, together with the turnover of the rest of the group's subsidiaries, adds up to an annual turnover of 120 million euros, representing 70% of the total turnover of the Chamartin Group, of which we form part.
