WestAluTec – HAI establishes new joint venture
The HAI Group is growing continuously – and thereby strengthening its product portfolio
HAI has established a joint venture with German family business Faulenbach Eloxal from Sprockhövel. This company is a specialist in electrolytically oxidised aluminium (Eloxal), with many years of experience in various product segments with customers in Germany and abroad. The newly founded enterprise will henceforth trade under the name of WestAluTec GmbH. Hammerer Aluminium Industries has enjoyed a friendly business partnership with the Faulenbach family for many years.
With this investment, HAI is strengthening its portfolio and underlining the consistent evolution of its three-pillar strategy. Together with the commissioning of a new aluminium extrusion press at the Soest plant, this will provide additional capacity for construction and industrial customers. Further objectives of the joint venture include offering customers another value creation step and safeguarding the quality of products with Eloxal surfaces for the long term.
WestAluTec GmbH is now the youngest member of the HAI family. A brand-new Eloxal plant has already been installed this year at the Sprockhövel facility. It will be commissioned in December 2017.
Solutions from a single source: HAI has set itself the task of achieving the best possible results in terms of quality and cost-effectiveness. The new joint venture will allow customers to be supported even more comprehensively in future. Individual requirements will be met in cooperation with experienced partners – now with even more expertise in the wonderful raw material aluminium.
