Hydro Profile Academy

The knowledge of aluminium and profile construction is still low compared to more traditional materials. That is why we have established the Profile Academy, an education that enhances competence and increases the competitiveness of companies and designers.

For two days you have the opportunity to meet our experts who are holding a course on design possibilities with aluminium profiles. We also make factory visits where we get to see the profiles extruded, anodized and processed. Our goal is to convey a deeper knowledge of aluminium and its applications as well as new applications.
