Hydro’s aluminium extrusion plant in Magnor is now certified according to the ASI Performance Standard. ASI aims to see sustainability and human rights principles increasingly embedded in supply chains.
The Aluminium Stewardship Initiative’s (ASI) Performance Standard recognizes the responsible production, sourcing and stewardship of aluminium. The certification of the Magnor plant covers the site’s production of aluminium solutions, including extrusion and fabrication activities, and surface treatment.
It is nice to be rewarded for the hard work our team has done and achieve this goal. ASI Certification is important to our sustainability agenda, and it supports our customer demands for aluminium products that are sourced and produced responsibly – says Morten Bråten, who manages the plant.
Hydro Extrusion Norway develops and produces around 7,500 tonnes of aluminium profiles annually, serving customers in the building, electronics, general engineering, and transport markets.
Last year, the company added Hydro CIRCAL and Hydro REDUXA to its customer offering. These low-carbon aluminium products help enable customers to reach their sustainability goals and meet the demands of climate-conscious consumers.
Hydro employs about 100 people at the Magnor plant, which began operations in 1971. It is the first aluminium extruder in Norway to achieve ASI certification.
