Aluminium Extrusions

Aalco are one of the UK’s largest purchasers of aluminium extrusion. This gives Aalco unrivalled purchasing power and sourcing expertise, which we share with our customers.

As a major customer of many leading extrusion mills Aalco has access to the widest possible range of alloys, shapes and sizes. In depth knowledge of each mill’s particular specialities means Aalco customers are assured that their extrusions will be sourced from the most cost-effective source.

The stock range includes special alloys, shapes and sizes for many industries including building, marine, road transport, signage, leisure & sporting goods and aerospace engineering.

A particular speciality is the supply of bespoke extrusions, designed for individual customers – from single shapes to full suites. Many customers have found major benefits in sourcing from Aalco rather than direct from a mill. These benefits include time saving, reduced costs, flexibility, the possibility to make regular changes in scheduled quantities, keeping abreast of technology changes, assistance with design and technical issues, all without sacrificing choice or quality. What’s more Aalco’s purchasing power means all this can be achieved at a very competitive price.

The processing services provided for aluminium extrusions include:

  • Cut lengths
  • Prefabrication
  • Finishing
  • Protective Coating or Sleeving
  • Special Packaging including ‘Kitting’
