Customer experience is paramount to us, offering high value and quality. Using cutting edge technology enables us to deliver world class products and CNC sub contract services, providing our clients with a sustainable competitive advantage.

The History

alimex was founded in the 1970’s in Bad Homburg by Helmut Geller, operating in the international aluminium trading business.

In 1984 Geller was responsible for revolutionising the process of manufacturing high precision aluminium cast plates, with the ACP 5080 and ACP 5080R cast plates entering production.

In 2002 alimex introduced precision aluminium CNC machined components to their product offering.
