AlProf, one of the most important aluminium extrusion producers in Romania, states that January has been an atypical month in the profile industry, with production capacity having tripled due to the large number of contracts signed this month.
With the European Union having imposed duties of up to 48% on imports of aluminium extrusions from China, the local production boosted, with local producers having to cover the gap generated by the absence of the Chinese supply in Europe.
At the end of 2020, The European Union announced it will impose duties of up to 48% on imports of aluminium extrusions from China midway through an investigation into whether Chinese producers are selling at unfairly low prices. The European Commission, which coordinates trade policy in the 27-nation European Union, opened an investigation in February 2020 into the product widely used in transport, construction and electronics after a complaint from industry body European Aluminium.
AlProf holds a production capacity in Constanta county and activates in the field of extrusion and production of aluminium components for a range of industries such as construction, automotive, ventilation or the heavy industry.
