Cutting-edge technology in aluminium casting
The ae group is an independent company which develops and manufactures diecast aluminium components to customer specifications. We are an established supplier, in particular to the automotive industry and automotive system suppliers, as well as to the aviation industry.
ae group’s specialties include a broad range of alloys, which in particular facilitates the production of high-ductility and weldable diecast components with both cold-setting and heat-treated alloys. In addition, ae can also implement a wide range of metal cutting manufacturing processes as well as other processing and testing processes in its own production facilities.
At ae group, roughly 1,100 employees use all their experience to ensure complete customer satisfaction through the entire value chain, including development. Our primary goal is to implement customer-specific requirements at the best possible overall costs. In 2011, the group’s turnover totalled € 125 million.
The holding’s headquarters and central development and production location is Gerstungen (Thuringia). Other plants are located in Nentershausen (Hesse), Lübeck (Schleswig-Holstein), Selmsdorf (Mecklenburg Western Pomerania) and Strzelce Krajenskie (Poland). All locations are equipped with modern manufacturing machinery for optimised manufacturing technologies.
ae group has been operating for over 50 years and specialises in technically demanding components. The development expertise in the group deserves particular mention. It ranges from component optimisation, diecasting-specific design to the optimisation of technological characteristics. The use of this specialised knowledge in the development phase results in major cost and functional advantages. This makes ae group an ideal development partner for new parts and components to be optimised.
