The plant is also leading in the sustainability area and has through life-cycle analysis demonstrated that the CO2 emissions in the extrusion process are only one-seventh the European average, positioning the plant as a reference for climate-conscious customers.

Nenzing is preparing for further growth in the coming years. The aluminium plant is responding to an increased demand in the region by adding a fourth extrusion line and expanding mechanical processing capabilities.

"Adding a fourth extrusion line to the plant will make us one of the most modern extrusion facilities in Europe and increase our capacity by 30%," says Managing Director Manfred Rotschne in Nenzing.

A new and fully automated raw metal warehouse and office space as well as the apprentice training hub will also be integrated into the new building. The construction work will start in the beginning of 2022 and the new extrusion line will be operational during spring 2023.

With currently over 400 employees, the Nenzing extrusion plant currently serves more than 1000 customers, mainly in German-speaking countries. The new press will also create additional jobs at the plant.

"The high level of innovation in Nenzing and our demonstrated low carbon footprint, will allow us to serve new and existing customers with a broader portfolio of sustainable and innovative solutions," concludes Rotschne.
