ContiTech Vibration Control has awarded Sapa’s aluminium extrusion plant in Slovakia, and Stihl has presented its top award to Sapa’s aluminium tubing plant in Belgium.

Over the last six years, Sapa in Slovakia has supplied 13.5 million pieces to ContiTech in Europe and Mexico. These include aluminium parts for engine-transmission brackets and internal aluminium cores for dampening blocks. Close collaboration and a commitment to quality and on- time delivery resulted in Sapa being selected as one of ContiTech’s top suppliers.

Stihl is a global manufacturer of chain saws and many other outdoor power tools, also with its base in Germany. Since the start of their cooperation in Germany some 20 years ago, Sapa in Lichtervelde now delivers its products globally to all of Stihl’s main production plants – in Brazil, China, Europe and the United States.

Tolga Egrilmezer, executive vice president responsible for strategy and business development for Sapa, says the company is “honored and proud to be recognised by not just one, but two of our valued customers. This is a testament to the commitment of our employees, from research labs to the shop floor, who are delivering high-quality aluminium solutions with service excellence.”
