About GLEICH Aluminium
The Gleich group
is a traditional family owned company from Kaltenkirchen, close to Hamburg. Founded in 1980 by Christel und Günter Gleich, the group of companies is now run by the second generation, headed by Roland Gleich.
The core business since the mid-1990s has been the development, production and worldwide distribution of G.AL® aluminum plates. The brand name G.AL® stands for extremely low-distortion, dimensionally-stable and homogeneous aluminum precision and mould plates of consistently high quality. A special manufacturing process makes our products stand apart from conventional aluminum rolled plates. Our customers benefit from the resulting unique material properties by significantly reducing production times and component costs.
The ambition and passion of always finding exactly the right aluminum material for a variety of different customer applications is what drives us.
G.AL® aluminum plates are used in
- mechanical engeneering
- laser and optical industry
- medical engeneering
- mould making
among others. Reducing weight by using aluminum helps GLEICH Aluminium to save valuable resources. At the same time, simpler machining compared to steel and aluminum rolled products is a frequently used time and cost advantage of GLEICH customers.
GLEICH Aluminum is one of the world’s leading producers in the global aluminum precision plate market.
