The innovating thermal break crimping technology, which has been launched in the global markets by Muller AG of Switzerland, combines the crimping process of two profiles, and can offer user companies a significant increase in profits through cost-reduction of energy.
“Gulf Extrusions has registered increased demand for thermal break profiles, from both the GCC and European markets,” said Robert Holtkamp, Director of Sales and Marketing, Gulf Extrusions. “With the view to meeting this demand, Gulf Extrusions decided to invest in the latest available technology, which will increase our capacity to deliver thermal break profiles, as well as provide economies of scale so that the new investment does not have to reflect in increased prices. Gulf Extrusions will be the first Extruder in the GCC region to implement this technology in its production process.”
“With the mission of providing world class aluminium profiles to our customers, Gulf Extrusions has made a strong commitment to the technological excellence of its production process,” said Holtkamp. “This new technology will add considerable value to our deliverable profiles, as well as introduce the region to a premium quality of thermal break profile. With a construction base in the UAE, Gulf Extrusions will be able to ensure extremely competitive prices in comparison to the manufacturers based in Europe.”
Gulf Extrusions has an existing capacity of 30,000 MT (Mega Tonnes) of aluminium profiles. Of this, 5% per cent are thermal break profiles supplied primarily to the regional construction industry. The investment in the new technology will increase the production of thermal break profiles by 25% per cent.
