COMPANY

Locally rooted, globally active

 

We manufacture high-quality primary, cast and rolled aluminium at two production sites in Ranshofen, Austria and Sept-Îles, Canada. Our core competencies are recycling, casting, rolling, heat treatment and surface finishes. High-quality cast alloys are manufactured in Ranshofen in the form of bi-part ingots, horizontally cast ingots, sows and liquid aluminium, mainly from recycled
material.


We produce coils, sheets and plates that are further processed for high-quality applications in aviation, transportation, mechanical engineering, packaging, electronics and consumer goods. Our comprehensive materials know-how is founded on almost 80 years of experience in aluminium.


We have achieved consistent production of premium products to exacting standards from recycled material. Combining our comprehensive material and production skills with cutting-edge facilities, a diverse range of aluminium scrap is transformed, on a daily basis, into high-quality cast and rolled products.

 

AMAG Austria Metall AG holds a 70% share in the German Aircraft Philipp Group headquartered in Übersee on Lake Chiemsee. Aircraft Philipp has years of experience in the manufacture of assembly-ready metal parts for the aerospace industry. The mechanical machining and processing of aluminum and titanium represents Aircraft Philipp’s core competence.​ Aircraft Philipp manufacturing locations are situated in Übersee / Chiemsee and Karlsruhe, Germany with a workforce in excess of 200 employees.

Aircraft Philipp - A MEMBER OF AMAG GROUP

 

AMAG Austria Metall AG holds a 70% share in the German Aircraft Philipp Group headquartered in Übersee on Lake Chiemsee. Aircraft Philipp has years of experience in the manufacture of assembly-ready metal parts for the aerospace industry. Aircraft Philipp manufacturing locations are situated in Übersee / Chiemsee and Karlsruhe, Germany with a workforce in excess of 200 employees.

 

 

Core competence

  • The mechanical machining and processing of aluminum and titanium represents Aircraft Philipp’s core competence.

 With the acquisition of the Aircraft Philipp shares majority, AMAG is now extending value creation in the direction of mechanical processing (such as milling and drilling) and the manufacturing of special components. This combination, with the acknowledged AMAG competencies of areas of rolling, casting and recycling, represents an unique sustainable value chain. This comprises of the resource-saving closed-loop-recycling1 of plate off-cuts and chips2 resulted from milling processes, as well as an improved buy-to-fly-ratio3 and optimized logistics along the entire value chain, resulting in a considerably reduced CO2-footprint.

 

  Closed-loop-recycling refers to closed material cycles and the best possible utilization of resources

   In the manufacture of complex metal parts from a single workpiece involving milling, for example, a great part of the material is removed. The chips and off-cuts are recycled accordingly.

  Buy to fly ratio: this ratio expresses the relationship between the weight of the purchased raw material and the weight of the final part

 


AMAG metal

As the AMAG Group’s metal trading company, AMAG metal manages the metals flows within the group and thereby represents the interface to the raw materials markets.

 

 

Main tasks:

  • Raw material supply (alumina, aluminium) to group companies.
  • Management of AMAG's interest in the aluminium smelter Alouette.
  • Sale of aluminium products (low-profile sows) from Aluminerie Alouette.
  • Risk management geared to minimizing the effects of price fluctuations on the metals (LME) and currency markets.
