Managing Director Arnd Brinkmann: "We are very pleased to have gained with Max Radt, a long-term industry-expert who ideally combines technical and innovation know-how with international sales experience."

The in-house integration of all important production steps from extrusion and coating to the thermal break of profiles in the aluminum sector and the strong expertise in wood-aluminum systems, offer a solid basis to enable this."
