HAI foundry site in Romania certified according to ASI Performance Standard

Ranshofen (09.30.2020) – At the beginning of 2020, the aluminium expert Hammerer Aluminium Industries (HAI) achieved the ASI Performance Standard certification for the CASTING division at its Austrian site in Ranshofen. Now HAI CASTING in Santana, Romania, has also received ASI certification.

Sustainability as a focus at all locations

The official certification in both HAI foundries according to the ASI standard, one of the highest industry standards with regard to sustainability and responsible behaviour in the aluminium industry, is evidence of Hammerer Aluminium Industries‘ strong focus on sustainability along the aluminium value chain.

HAI had to meet 59 criteria within the three sustainability pillars of

  • corporate governance
  • environment
  • social affairs

as part of the certification process of the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI).

To do so, Hammerer Aluminium Industries relies on the consistent use of recycled aluminium.  HAI ensures that aluminium scrap from all product segments and at all locations is recycled and thereby consistently contributes to climate neutrality and recycling management. 

CEO Rob van Gils emphasises: „We are delighted that shortly after the ASI certification in Ranshofen, the casting in Santana also rec

eived the certificate, underlining the high standard of the foundry. For us, the sustainable design of our business processes is a task that can only be achieved by joining forces at all locations. And it works!“
