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.
