Holden Aluminium Technologies Ltd based in Bromyard, Herefordshire have been part of the Sapa Group from April 2014.
Yann Beck, Managing Director responsible for all Sapa's operations in the UK commented at the time, 'We are extremely pleased to be able to announce this major move forward in Sapa's commitment to providing our customers in the UK with the most comprehensive 'total supply solution' in the extrusion market. Holden's expertise and competence will enhance our already well developed fabrication facilities at our Redditch site and the combination will further extend our customer offer'.
A Holden spokesperson commented, 'We are confident that this move will secure the long term future of our business and allow us to grow strongly under the umbrella of the Sapa organisation. The exposure to Sapa's extensive extrusion capabilities will ensure that Holden's customers receive the very best service, quality and technical back-up that the market can offer'.
Holden are established at the cutting edge of bending/forming technology and have taken many customers' ideas from concept to production. The work ethic with flexibility, reliability and quality has been the key driver towards establishing a strong and loyal customer base. Operations at Bromyard will complement the existing Redditch site and further enhance the total company offer to the market.
