Aug 12, 2015 | Once again this year, TRIMET Aluminium SE will present itself at the International Motor Show (IAA) from September 17 to 27, 2015, as a high-performance partner to the automotive industry. With two production locations aligned to the requirements of the automotive industry, Harzgerode and Sömmerda, the medium-sized materials specialist has held its ground as an innovative system supplier in the sector. Special alloys and customized aluminum products contribute to weight reduction and performance in various vehicles. The steadily growing demand for structural components made of aluminum in the automotive industry continues to ensure above-average growth in the business unit.

For approximately 200 million euros, TRIMET expanded its two locations in Thuringia and Saxony-Anhalt over the past decade, in order to meet the increasing demand and enlarge its product portfolio. Priorities in the automotive sector include mechatronic parts for automatic transmissions, gear and clutch housings, structural parts such as A-pillars and hinge seats, as well as engine blocks. Additionally, since 2009, TRIMET has been the exclusive supplier of chassis components to a well-known German car manufacturer. TRIMET has since delivered more than four million gravity die-casted parts manufactured in Harzgerode. “Weight reduction is an ongoing issue in the global automotive industry. The potential of aluminum is far from exhausted,” says Luigi Mattina, Management Board member at TRIMET.
With machinery ranging from 530 to 4,100 tons and a recently commissioned, highly automated gravity die-casting system, TRIMET locations in central Germany are able to meet a diverse range of demands. The family-owned enterprise caters to all major automotive manufacturers and suppliers. In the future, the TRIMET locations Essen, Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne, and Castelsarrasin will also produce larger quantities for automotive customers. To this end, local foundries are currently being expanded. “We are experiencing increasing demand for special wires that are processed into connecting elements, as well as for cable harnesses. The requirement for rolling ingots made of special alloys is also growing steadily. With our long-standing experience, our in-house research department, and our broad product portfolio, we are a development partner for the car of tomorrow,” says Mattina.
IAA 2015 in Frankfurt am Main – TRIMET is looking forward to your visit at the joint stand of the Automotive Cluster Eastern Germany (ACOD) E17 in Hall 4.0.
