Quality and sustainability

For Hüttenes-Albertus, quality and sustainability are not just paid lip service, but are a living reality. The company has been certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001 and 14001 since the 1990s. Moreover, in 2015 HA has introduced an ISO 50001 certified energy management system. The company highlights its commitment to energy efficiency by having successfully certified its German headquarters in Düsseldorf as well as its production sites in Hanover and Braunschweig.

Emission-free casting: within reach

The inorganic binder systems made by Hüttenes-Albertus have already made emission-free casting a reality, although not every foundry is able to change its technology from one day to the next. However, an economic and pragmatic solution for the emissions problem is within reach. On one hand, HA has continually developed its organic binder systems as regards environmental sustainability. On the other, the company is looking outside the box of its own products. Together with innovative partners, HA is developing sustainable and complete solutions for its customers.
