Mechanical and electrical engineering

Thanks to the variety of semi-finished products and shapes available, aluminium is an indispensable construction material in mechanical and plant engineering. However, the importance of this market segment for sales of aluminium products is, however, often underestimated. In Germany, the mechanical and plant engineering market is the second most important branch of industry after the car industry; it is the third largest market for aluminium rolled products, forgings, castings and extruded or drawn semi-finished products.
