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 460 ktonnes, split across five production sites on three continents. The facilities are located in Shanghai in China, in Finspång in Sweden, as well as in Huntingdon (Tennessee), Salisbury (North Carolina) and Newport (Arkansas) in the United States.

The production facility in Finspång has a capacity of 100 ktonnes and  a project underway to increase capacity by 20 ktonnes, which is expected to be completed in 2021. The plant has produced aluminium products since 1922, and aluminium products for brazed heat exchangers since 1972. 

The production plant in Shanghai was established in 1996. Since then Gränges has focused on expanding capacity to keep pace with market growth, and capacity at the site now stands at 120 ktonnes.

In the US, Gränges has three production sites with a combined production capacity of 260 ktonnes. The production capacity has increased by 40 ktonnes in 2019 through the expansion of Huntingdon. In addition, production at the plant in Newport will restart in the fourth quarter of 2019. The improved and expanded plant will contribute with 20 ktonnes annually.

Furthermore, the production sites in Finspång, Shanghai and Huntingdon are equipped with important competence centres for research and innovation in close cooperation with customers. 

Gränges also owns 51 percent of the shares in the production company Getek GmbH, which manufactures aluminum billets through advanced spray forming technology. The billets are mainly used for our product TRILLIUM®.

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