TO NEW HEIGHTS
IN TOTAL, WE PROCESS AND MACHINE OVER 300 TONNES OF ALUMINIUM A YEAR
We can therefore produce strong and light-weight high-quality products such as stairs, railings, walkways and masts for a wide range of applications.

Our masts are used for landing systems, landing lights, meteorological equipment, windsocks and other installations that need to be frangible, i.e. break or collapse in case an airplane or another vehicle should collide with the mast.
Aluminium is a material with great possibilities and is perhaps the most environmentally friendly construction material of all time. Did you know that 75% of all aluminium produced is still in use thanks to the metal’s durability and recyclable properties? At Normeka, we have a strong focus on efficient use of raw materials and recycle all aluminium from the production.
Aluminium has a unique strength-to-weight ratio and has great design flexibility. This makes it a favorite among engineers and architects. Its unique corrosion resistance provides long durability, and it can be surface treated in several ways.
Aluminium production involves a certain amount of residual material, so it is important that all of this is recycled. One of the advantages of aluminium is that it can be recycled endlessly.
Recycling aluminium requires only 5% energy compared to extracting aluminium from bauxite. This means that the amount of energy required to make one kilogram of brand-new aluminium can be used to make 20 kilograms of recycled aluminium.
Aluminium is therefore often referred to as «the green metal».
