The history of Aluminium Duffel dates back to 1946, when the Feron family founded the aluminium rolling mill. Today they are a European leader in the manufacturing of aluminium rolled products for diverse industries worldwide, including Architecture & Design and ABS (Automotive Body Sheet). It is the company’s ambition to be a leading sustainable rolling mill who offers low carbon aluminium products to his customers.

Geert Vannuffelen, General Manager of the Duffel mill says: “Today marks a milestone in our company’s history. We are looking forward to proceed under the new ownership of AIP, who is committed to a sustainable future for our company. We are convinced of a good cooperation between both parties and we are positive about the first steps AIP has taken to further invest in our company, which demonstrates their engagement to reach the full potential of our plant.

AIP intends to continue to operate Aluminium Duffel together with the existing local leadership team, and does not anticipate any disruption to normal operations of the business, including for customers, suppliers and employees. AIP expects to provide additional capital to support the business going forward so that it can successfully execute on its business plan, including for working capital, continued employment and important capital investments.
