We source many hundreds of tonnes of aluminium extrusion and can also provide added-value services to customer’s own raw material (on a free issue basis). This means that we can also be used as an ‘insurance policy’ by customers where they cannot be certain that their own direct supply from the Far East will always be 100% on time or to the required quality.
