Who we are and what we do

When aluminium is dealt with across the board by motivated, dynamic, competent employees, it can coalesce completely with enthusiasm. The versatile light metal is not exactly loaded with emotion, but we lend it a very personal touch.

BLECHA: This is who we are – a young, dynamic team with more than 30 years of industry experience as an aluminium wholesaler. What sets us apart today – in addition to our large warehouse – is the flexibility, rapidity and reliable processing of our product and customer orders. We guarantee our customers correct order execution of the highest standard – from the initial enquiry through to final delivery.

It's no coincidence that we export to more than 60 countries worldwide today. We are just so enthusiastic about this material with which we surpass ourselves on a daily basis. True to our motto: aluminium is our business – innovation our destination
