Sapa acquires UK-based aluminium components company
Sapa is strengthening its range of advanced aluminium solutions with the acquisition of UK-based Holden Aluminium Technologies Ltd.
Sapa has taken over the operation with effect from April 1, 2014.
Holden’s aluminium extrusion fabrication plant is located in Bromyard, England, and employs approximately 60 people. The site specializes in the supply of formed and machined components for sectors including construction, transport and general engineering.

“Holden have established themselves at the cutting edge of forming technology, and they have taken many customer ideas from concept to production,” says Couturier. “They have a strong reputation in the market and we are extremely pleased to be able to move closer toward our desire to provide customers in the UK with the most comprehensive ‘total supply solution’ in the extrusion market.”
Holden, a privately owned company, has been in business for over 50 years and has long associations in Bromyard.
“We are confident that this move will allow us to grow strongly under the Sapa umbrella," says Richard Williams, Managing Director of Holden Aluminium Technologies Ltd.
