Brampton, ON, July 31, 2013 – ALMAG Aluminum, currently celebrating its 60th anniversary, welcomed the Honourable Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade and Kyle Seeback, MP, Brampton West, for a tour of its facilities yesterday. The Brampton-based manufacturer has been growing steadily, hiring new staff and opened a fabrication and warehousing facility in Alabama in 2012 to more actively service the needs of some key clients in the U.S.

“On behalf of the Government of Canada, I’d like to congratulate ALMAG Aluminum on having recently celebrated its 60th Anniversary,” said the Honourable Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade. “Our government will continue to support Canadian manufacturers through initiatives that will unleash their potential to innovate and compete in the global economy, which will benefit Canadian workers and families for years to come.”

“Our business has been growing consistently both in Canada and internationally and it was a tremendous opportunity to share our experiences with the Minister, “says Joe Jackman, vice-president of sales and marketing, ALMAG Aluminum. “Part of our success is due to the fact that we actively seek to work on complex, custom-designed projects that other extruders say can’t be done. That has become a bit of a calling card and has resulted in our servicing large companies in multiple industries, including automotive, lighting, office systems, store fixtures  and healthcare.”

At the same time, ALMAG Aluminum is constantly educating its customers and plays a leadership role in helping customers convert a vision for a part into reality. For example, ALMAG has worked closely with automotive manufacturers and their partners to help them understand how they can best utilize lightweight aluminum instead of steel to design cars that will meet aggressive, future fuel saving targets.
