Premium quality aluminum profiles and sections
State-of-the-art fabrication on fully automated extrusion lines
In Hettstedt, HMT operates a high-tech, certified extrusion plant that is able to cater to a wide range of extruded profiles and sections and metal processing options.
Our 250+ team produces upwards of 20,000 tons of aluminum profiles and sections every year in our cutting-edge facilities. This output is enabled by two fully automated extrusion lines featuring extrusion pressures of 18 MN and 25 MN.
Exacting precision and quality
Quality management writ large
The aluminum profiles and sections that leave our plant comply with exacting requirements in terms of their precision and surface finish. Our independent extrusion plant supplies a growing international customer base, including the automotive and construction sectors. In order to satisfy these exacting demands, we have established an end-to-end quality management system based on IATF 16949.
Our equipment and exacting QM demands mean we are able to guarantee optimal quality and value for money.
