Who is Aldel

There is only one company in the Netherlands that produces primary aluminium,  Aldel in Farmsum. With pride and northern common sense we produce our sustainable Aluminium. The production has been increased over the last 2 years, more than 300 glowing hot melting pots are in place and thus we are still looking for new colleagues to realize our ambitions. We want to innovate in products, energy efficiency and flexibility and logistics. Aluminium is infinitely recyclable and therefore a product that will accelerate the transition to a sustainable economy. We have a clear future and that future is green. We help in stabilizing the energy grid, so that energy from wind and sun can be used in times that there is low demand. That is our contribution to national climate goals. Our aluminium goes by truck to customers throughout Europe. They make our aluminum suitable for the automotive industry, the energy sector and construction. Once produced it only takes 5% of the original energy to recycle it. Recycling can be over and over again, endlessly taking on all sizes, shapes and applications without loss of quality. That is our product. That is the new Aldel. On the way to a green future.
