Metalcolor was launched as an aluminium coil coating specialist in 1981 in the village of Forel near Lausanne in Switzerland.
Since then the Company has developed enormously with production of pre-lacquered strips increasing from 1 million m2 in 1982 to over 12 million today.
Metalcolor introduced the environmental system ISO14001 in 2009. The Company has always defended the principle of eliminating pollution at its source and our production and handling methods are geared to that end. METALCOLOR’s Environmental Plan defines ecological goals in terms of lowering energy consumption and reducing CO2 emissions while increasing production output.
Our company is a member of the Swiss Energy Saving Agency, an organization created by the Swiss Federal Government to aid companies in implementing realistic energy-reduction projects. We have defined ambitious targets and made a formal engagement with the Swiss Authorities concerning reductions in energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
