#wearealimex celebrates a landmark birthday soon, its 50th! Our story began in 1970. It’s hard to believe how quickly time has passed since our founder, Helmut Geller, who sadly has now passed, began building up the family-owned company alimex. Incidentally, the name alimex is drawn from a combination of the words “aluminium”, “import” and “export”, and today represents the highest quality and precision in aluminium products worldwide. A family-owned company – what exactly is that? Family-owned companies are definition“businesses in which private individuals or members of their families hold at least 50% of the shares and in which those private individuals or members of their families are also members of the business’ management.”* In alimex’s case, the family is our company founder’s widow and her two daughters.

Your number one expert for aluminium cast plates

As a medium-sized family business, alimex is the quality and innovation leader in the process it has developed for the production of aluminium cast plates. If you have any questions about this versatile material, alimex has the right answer for you. alimex is one of the world’s most renowned suppliers of plates, blanks and components made of aluminium. Cast aluminium plates with outstanding material properties, high precision and fast availability are offered by alimex to its customers worldwide. With the original process, the products, such as the aluminium cast plates, are perfectly adapted to your individual customer requirements and can thus have the most varied surface and material properties.     

First of all, the question arises: What makes aluminium so special in the first place? alimex-aluminium can be processed excellently. In addition, it is UV-resistant and does not cause any problems even with large temperature differences, which is why aluminium is often used in the solar industry. Furthermore, aluminium has a smooth surface and is therefore used in medical technology – it can be cleaned easily and uncomplicatedly and is odourless. As you can see, aluminium can be used in a wide variety of industries due to its many advantages and almost unlimited applications and is therefore considered the material of the present and future. Compared to other materials, aluminium offers very high stability despite its low weight, conducts temperature and has the very best recycling properties. Especially the optimal surface properties, elongation limits and machinability distinguish aluminium cast plates from products made of other materials, which is why its components are being used in more and more fields of application.

Through alimex’s unique process, components and aluminium cast plates are manufactured to peak performance in all geometries to ensure the unique “Made in Germany” quality.

Climate protection with the help of alimex aluminium

In view of the ever-advancing climate change, it is particularly important to work in a resource-saving way. This is where one of the greatest advantages of aluminium comes to the fore, because aluminium can be recycled almost 100% – in other words, it is a real super metal. The light metal is an important material in the field of renewable energies and thus contributes a great deal to climate protection. Many industries are switching from stainless steel and metal to aluminium these days to support and advance climate protection. If you also attach great importance to climate protection and sustainability, alimex is the right place for you. Because the cast plates and components manufactured with alimex aluminium are dimensionally stable and cut with high precision, so that the scrap can be reduced and you also save costs accordingly. So you not only work more cost-efficiently, but also contribute to climate protection at the same time.
