EXLABESA announces the acquisition of FLANDRIA ALUMINIUM, a French company who specialises in the extrusion, machining, surface treatment and recycling of aluminium profiles. The recently signed agreement has passed the legal validation process by the competent authorities and has been approved by the French Competition Commission.
This takeover, which is part of EXLABESA’s international expansion strategy, will strengthen its direct presence in France, Belgium, and the Netherlands, allowing the company to offer high value-added products with the highest level of service in these markets.
The two companies, both of family origin, claim they share identical values and the same passion for the aluminium industry. EXLABESA will bring its entrepreneurial vision and investment capacity to strengthen the French company and drive its long-term growth. At the same time, FLANDRIA will maintain a high degree of autonomy to respond most effectively to the specific needs of its market.
FLANDRIA ALUMINIUM, based in Warneton (French Nord department), has a history of over 50 years and currently employs 170 workers. It specialises in the manufacture of aluminium profiles for the construction, industrial and transport segments. Its facilities, covering over 35,000 m², include two presses of ⌀ 8” and ⌀ 9” respectively. Additionally, it has an aluminium recycling plant with a melting furnace, which will allow EXLABESA to increase its low-carbon aluminum production capacity.

Through its commitment to long-term consolidation and unique production capabilities, the company has positioned itself as a global leader in the production of high-value aluminium profiles for the most demanding industrial sectors.
