Material of the month

From aircrafts and skyscrapers to smartphones and packaging, aluminium is one of the most versatile materials used today. alimex are proud to be working with this young material supporting industry and universities to maximise the innovative possibilities of aluminium alloys.

Aluminium is a young metal, with a relatively late discovery less than 200 years ago. Despite this, it has become the second most used metal in the world, after iron, and established a well-earned reputation for its versatility and diverse range of applications. Aluminium is the third most abundant element in the Earth’s crust. It is estimated that the solid portion of the crust, to a depth of ten miles, contains around 8% aluminium. However, aluminium hasn’t always been widely available. In the mid-1800s, it was considered more valuable than gold. Elite guests of the President of the French Republic, Napoléon III, were presented with aluminium cutlery, while fashionable and wealthy women wore jewellery crafted from the metal.


Part of the alimex ethos is to constantly strive to be the best in terms of product, service and customer experience.

Continuous innovation, over 40 years of experience in aluminium production and processing combined with our commitment to quality have helped to maintain our position as a leading provider of high precision quality aluminium cast tooling plate, blocks and cuts.

However what we think is less important than what our clients think, and we are delighted to have clients that are pleased to recommend us.

Here are just some of the reasons our clients tell us they like working with us:

Product quality
Delivery reliability
Delivery lead times
Solutions-oriented consulting
Personal contact – dedicated account management

Long-term partnerships

Having great products is just one ingredient for success, which is why we go the extra mile for our clients, rather than simply taking orders we use our knowledge and expertise to add genuine value to our clients.

The result is true partnership, moving away from simply being a transaction between supplier and customer, working towards common goals that are mutually beneficial.
