Aluminium profiles are used in a wide range of different sectors to make everything from window frames to car bumpers. The material’s comparatively low weight, strength and high resistance to corrosion make it the ideal choice for an ever growing range of applications. Although it is widely used in construction and furniture, the largest consumer of aluminium is the transport sector, which accounts for 27% of global aluminium consumption. Aviation is the biggest market at present but the automotive sector is rapidly catching up. For aluminium extrusion specialist BODEGA G. & C. S.p.a. in Italy, the diversity of applications for its products is the key to its success.
