Production facilities

With manufacturing capacity on three continents, Gränges has created a platform that meets complex customer demands and enables continued global expansion. The strong demand for Gränges’ products has resulted in investments to add further production capacity.

Gränges has a total annual production capacity of about 560 ktonnes, split across six production facilities for production of rolled aluminium products on three continents. The facilities are located in Shanghai in China, in Finspång in Sweden, in Konin in Poland, as well as in Huntingdon (Tennessee), Salisbury (North Carolina) and Newport (Arkansas) in the United States. Furthermore, the production sites in Finspång, Huntingdon, Konin and Shanghai are equipped with important competence centres for research and innovation in close cooperation with customers. 

Our production facility in Finspång has a capacity of 100 ktonnes and a project underway to increase the production capacity by 20 ktonnes. The investment will also improve operational efficiency and logistics and reduce transport and emissions. The expansion project started in 2018 and is expected to be completed in 2021. The plant has produced aluminium products since 1922, and aluminium products for brazed heat exchangers since 1972. During 2021, our Finspång facility successfully achieved certification against ASI’s Performance Standard the certification demonstrates that Gränges’ aluminium products are produced responsibly and sustainably.

Our production facility in Konin was established in 1966. It has a capacity of 100 ktonnes and a project underway to increase the production capacity by 40 ktonnes. The investment is expected to be completed in 2022 and will add both capacity and capabilities to address new product areas.

Our production plant in Shanghai was established in 1996. Since then we have focused on expanding capacity to keep pace with market growth, and capacity at the site now stands at 120 ktonnes. During 2019, our Shanghai facility successfully achieved certification against ASI’s Performance Standard, which means that Gränges’ aluminium products are produced responsibly and sustainably.

In the US, we have three production sites with a combined production capacity of 240 ktonnes. The production capacity increased by 40 ktonnes through the expansion of the Huntingdon plant in 2019 and another 20 ktonnes per year will be fully available from the third quarter 2021, since an upgrade and expansion of the plant in Newport was completed in early 2021 to meet the increased demand for thin aluminum foil in the United States. At the beginning of 2021, it was also decided to expand the casting operations in Huntingdon by 25 ktonnes per year to enable better capacity utilization in the downstream rolling and slitting operations.

Gränges also has a wholly owned subsidiary, Gränges Powder Metallurgy GmbH, producing aluminium billets using advanced spray-forming technology. The company has two production facilities, one in St Avold in France and one in Velbert in Germany, with an annual production capacity of about 2,500 tonnes.

All Gränges’ facilities are ISO-certified for quality standards. In Sweden and China the facilities also are ISO-certified for the environmental standard.
