United Aluminium was incorporated in summer 1990 and initially located in a small office in Wilmslow in Cheshire. The company was a forerunner in the supply of aluminium extrusions from some of the global suppliers that now account for around 40% of the UK aluminium market.
The team expanded and relocated to a 7000sqm industrial site in 1996. By this time, the company not only supplied volume users with aluminium profile but also specialised in the manufacture of extruded aluminium, OEM components, utilising extensive in house fabrication, finishing and assembly facilities.
The company has always endeavoured to be at the forefront of technology and quality and subsequently developed the acclaimed Unibox Modular System of aluminium extrusions, components and accessories. Still a supplier of extruded aluminium parts, most of our UK manufacture is now highly reactive and concentrates on Unibox projects. Extruded aluminium OEM components are now largely produced in conjunction with Eastern European and Far Eastern partners as markets become increasingly competitive.
Over 15 years experience in aluminium extrusion sees United Aluminium ready to handle diverse business with clients ranging from Foster & Partners to Virgin Trains.
The United Aluminium group expanded once again by moving to an even larger site in Middleton, Manchester, over the course of December 2010 and January 2011. This site boasts excellent manufacturing facilities and encompasses all aspects of the business under one roof. Being close to the M60 motorway, the new premises are extremely accessible from whichever part of the country you are visiting us from.
