The students from IES Pirineos de Jaca, visited IBERFOIL

On the 24th of May the students of FP of Mechanics of the IES Pirineos de Jaca, together with their teacher, visited the facilities of IBERFOIL. These facilities are located in Sabiñánigo (Huesca), and it is the only factory in Spain specialised in aluminium thin sheet rolling between 6mm and 6 microns.

The students were very interested throughout the visit and were able to see first-hand the inside of the factory, and what the reality of working in the world of aluminium is like. They were able to see IBERFOIL‘s rolling, cutting, separating, annealing and packaging processes, what their uses are and how they prepare the material to finally send it to their customers.

The IBERFOIL technicians who accompanied them during the visit informed them about the mechanics used in the factory, such as pneumatics, hydraulics and high-tech automatisms. They were also able to see the new Edelweiss Rolling Mill and the new Tension Leveller in full operation. The technicians also told them about the new IBERFOIL Integra project and informed them about the vital importance of recycling, the circular economy and IBERFOIL‘s commitment to a sustainable future.

This visit was the perfect way for the students to get in touch with the industrial reality and to be able to bet on a job that is based on aluminium’s world. In IBERFOIL, they will find a future in line with their qualities and will be able to develop their professional value.

This action brings together specialised students and the labour needs of the factory, leader in the aluminium rolling sector.

ALIBERICO acquires 100% of the Aragonese company IDALSA, Spain’s second largest aluminium casting and recycling manufacturer

As part of its comprehensive Sustainability Plan, ALIBERICO has closed the purchase of 100% of the Aragonese company Ibérica de Aleaciones Ligeras (IDALSA), Spain’s second largest manufacturer of aluminium smelting and recycling, which is the first of its acquisitions in the liquid aluminium sector, with the aim of committing to the circular economy and a green and sustainable industry.

IDALSA has a 300,000 square meter plant in the town of Remolinos, near Zaragoza (Spain), and recycles 60,000 tons of liquid aluminium from scrap metal per year.  The company currently produces 45,000 tons per year of aluminium ingots in different formats and compositions, mainly for the automotive industry. The company has a workforce of 49 workers and in 2021 had a turnover of 75 million euros, of which 70% comes from its exports to countries in Europe, America and Asia.

This investment is part of the ALIBERICO Group’s Sustainability Plan, which focuses on boosting the Circular Economy and drastically reducing CO2 emissions, and certifies the Group’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. In early 2022, ALIBERICO started up its first self-consumption photovoltaic installation at its Alicante factory, RedBOND Composites, with the aim of obtaining environmental benefits equivalent to avoiding the emission of 200 tons/year of CO2 into the atmosphere and the planting of 400 trees. ALIBERICO is also currently implementing the IBERFOIL INTEGRA project in Sabiñánigo (Huesca, Spain), which involves the construction of a new factory in an area adjacent to the current IBERFOIL lamination plant. The new plant will be entirely dedicated to scrap recovery, smelting and coil manufacturing, and is set to become a benchmark for the Circular Economy in Spain.
