Marco Novellini, Chairman of the board with Friedhelm Grobler, Business Director

“Since my father and mother founded Novellini in 1966, quality is the basis of our production mentality and philosophy. Our casthouse was installed 17 years ago, it was a period when the level of technology was on the rise and we remained true to this philosophy” The first new milestone of novALmec was the expansion of the casthouse capacity to 33’000 tons per year and major investments in quality aspects of our billets. Obviously, investments in equipment are important, but our people are crucial. The experience of our operators throughout the whole process is above all a fundamental asset.

The second new milestone of novALmec will be the development of new alloy specifications together with our customers. The overall imprint of our production activity is sustainability.

One of our strategic focus areas is to enable our resources and technical know-how to ensure respect for our environment and commitment to sustainability. plays a decisive role in the circular economy and aluminium value chain by using aluminium scrap (recycling) as the raw material for the production of new aluminium products as our logo promises” .
