Making cars lighter, safer and recyclable
We design and manufacture aluminum components for your passenger cars and commercial vehicles. The aim is to shed weight, thereby boosting fuel economy and reducing carbon emissions, and to design for disassembly.
Aluminum extrusion technologies
Hydro works with OEMs and top-tier suppliers in North America, Europe, and Asia. We serve as consulting engineers and as your manufacturing partner, utilizing aluminum extrusion technologies in structural and heat transfer applications.
The choice of materials is the first and most important factor for automotive design.
