Hydro at GIFA: global and local

Hydro will once again present itself at GIFA, the most important international trade fair for the casting industry in Düsseldorf, as one of the leading suppliers of primary casting alloys from June 28th to July 2nd.

Under the motto “Global supplier, local partner”, the company will be demonstrating at Stand B 50 in Hall 13 how Hydro recently expanded its wide-ranging production and customer service capacities.

“The ramp-up of our large Qatalum smelter will soon be completed and is essential for the fact that we are currently significantly increasing our sales to customers in Asia. With the takeover of Vale's first-class upstream aluminum activities in Brazil, we have also secured our own supply of bauxite and alumina for the next 100 years, ”said Harald Odegaard, sales manager for foundry products at Hydro.

Odegaard: “However, just as important as our globalization is that we strengthen our customer service accordingly locally. Because it is the service teams that help close to the customer in both business and technical questions. ”This gives the picture of the puzzle in which all parts fit: because Hydro maintains close personal customer relationships in all key areas - whether sales or technical service , Application development or research. Hydro ensures the secure basis for this by continuously developing the efficiency of our network of foundries for primary casting alloys in the network of the aluminum plants Sunndal, Aardal, Slovalco, Kurri Kurri and Qatalum.

Learn more about our services and alloys and meet Hydro at GIFA in Düsseldorf, Hall 13, Stand B 50.
