CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF ALUCOBOND®

The unique success story of ALUCOBOND® aluminium composite panels began with the market launch in 1969. 2019, 50 years later, we are celebrating our 50th anniversary under the motto "Next and Beyond". True to this motto, we do not only want to look back on our success over the last 50 years, but also look forward into the future.

On this web special, we will showcase 50 projects in 50 weeks. Each week of the year a new project that has been selected from our global database and represents one of our core values:

  • Quality & service
  • Experience
  • Safety
  • Innovation
  • and of course beauty...

We have always seen ourselves as more than just a panel manufacturer and have put a lot of effort to offer you a wide range of services and technical support in addition to our product and the many available surfaces. In cooperation with renowned companies and universities, we have developed new planning tools, which support our customers at every stage of façade development – from inspiration through the design stage on to final installation.
