Tradition & Future

Alufinish was founded in 1972 as a limited liability company.

Since then we have been successful in the development, the production and the distribution of products for the surface treatment of metals. In the beginning aluminium and especially its anodic oxidation was the focus of our activities. Over the course of the following 40+ years, a large number of products for the surface refining of other metals followed.

With a committed team from young and old and the right mixture of experience and the thirst of action we let your wishes become our program, their realization our task. Competent experts in all service fields work to fulfill your special needs, with an open ear for your wishes and the sense for the essentials.

Our service will make the difference.

Successful by: Partnership

We see our customers as well as our suppliers as partner.

Everyone of you has his own ideas and expectations of a cooperation with us. Ideas and expectations which we want to fulfill, each day anew. By a close-meshed net of sales and service forces, by competent consulting from the layout of a new line till the sample treatment, by the individual product development or specific supply wishes.

With commitment and in close cooperation with you we work on individual solutions and advice you competently from the beginning. From the first idea till the final product. With a convincing quality and performance.

We want to be more than just a supplier of chemicals: your partner you can trustfully rely on.

Our Logistics – Your Advantage

Our system for fastest transfer of goods.

The ability to react fast on customers wishes is becoming more and more important for the success of a company. „On demand“ is the keyword that defines both our production and distribution cycles.

With our huge storehouse for raw material and products we are able to react quickly on the market‘s demands and requiries. The key stages in this process are: production and filling processes that are optimized for your demands, storehouse logistics, frictionless services and just-in-time delivery.

Environmental protection in our company

We are fully committed to meeting legal requirements and official obligations with regard to the protection of the environment.

For the sake of sustainable development, we feel it is our duty to continue actively promoting environmental protection both on the production floor and in our products, thus consistently reducing the burden on the environment.

By implementing and maintaining a validated environment management system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 14001, protection of the environment has become an organisational part of our company.

For the benefit of all and for a clean environment!

We are currently faced with fundamental changes in the European and international chemicals legislation.
