Sapa Group Becomes the New World Leader in Aluminium Solutions


On 1st September, a new company called Sapa AS became a reality - a newly formed joint venture of the profiles, building systems and precision tubing operations of Sapa and Hydro.

This union of the two businesses now means the company can enjoy a strong local presence and demonstrate technical expertise on all continents. With more than 100 plants and about 23,000 employees, the new venture is present in over 40 countries, creating a global turnover of 43 billion NOK.

Sapa group will become a market leader in the building systems sector with five brands developing products and services dedicated to serve all specific needs of their customers worldwide: Technal, Wicona, Sapa, Domal and Askey.

The mission of each brand will remain unchanged. Better equipped to serve clients' needs, they will continue to be fully committed to helping them create new opportunities, with high quality, innovative and sustainable solutions.

The different brands of Sapa Building Systems offer a wide range of solutions: casement and sliding windows, doors, facades, conservatories, shutters, sun protection, balustrading, etc, each of them with their own specific advantages. The quality of their raw materials, the high production standards and their ability to collaborate with a large number of partners, all strengthen their respective positions as international brands with outstanding products and a commitment to customer service excellence, supported by a global network and proven expertise.
