50 Years of History

História 2

1972 - Foundation

Extrusal's history dates back to 1972, more precisely to March, 31.

During the construction of his own house, Engineer Carlos Lourenço Boia, verified the inexistence of national production of aluminum profiles, a sector that flourished around the world. Thus, on March 31, 1972, the company EXTRUSAL – Companhia Portuguesa de Extrusão S.A. was born, specialized in the extrusion of aluminum profiles for the Architecture and Industry sectors in general.


1974 - Creation of the Technical Department and start of production

After the construction of the building and the installation of the first “1700” press, Extrusal began its work on an experimental basis in the second half of 1974.


The Technical Department responsible for the design, development and testing of all dies is created at the same time, thus starting the limited production of dies with the installation of the first EDM machine.


1978 - Additional press - Installation of the second "1600" press.

1988 - SANDALOR Quality Mark

Anodizing capacity has been doubled through the implementation of a new Anodizing line. The Sandalor license n.º 207 was also granted, exclusively for Portugal, which allows a variety of anodized products, which represents the maximum exponent of the quality of this treatment.


1994 - Automatic lacquering line and creation of the surface treatment laboratory

Increase in the offer of surface treatments and implementation of the automatic lacquering line. A year marked by the launch of an automatic Thermo Lacquering line, which complements the range of surface treatments offered, and by the creation of a laboratory to control the quality of surface treatments carried out in-house.


1995 - QUALICOAT Quality Mark

Like Anodizing, Lacquering was licensed in 1995 by QUALICOAT with the European Quality License nº 808.

1997 - ISO 9002 certification and implementation of SIGMA


Extrusal Quality System Certification - APCER ISO 9002

The implementation of the Extrusal Quality System, based on the NP EN ISO 9002 standard, is the ideal basis for the improvement of the processes and products carried out by the company and presented itself as the logical step to be overcome in the development of Extrusal and in the its incessant search for maximum customer satisfaction.

Thus, in 1997, Extrusal overcame the challenge of certification, becoming the first Portuguese company, and one of the only ones in Europe, to be certified in the areas of die manufacturing, extrusion, anodizing and thermo lacquering of aluminum profiles.


Implementation of SIGMA

If certification by the NP EN ISO 9002 standard was the natural outcome of Extrusal's Quality Policy, the next step was the decision to integrate environmental concerns into a coherent program, having started in 1997 the implementation of the Integrated System for the Management of Environment (SIGMA), based on the NP EN ISO 14001 standard.
