Our philosophy

Innovative, yet down-to-earth. Open-minded, yet regionally rooted. Extremely versatile and steady at the same time – this is aluplast. Despite its international success, aluplast still is a family-run business. The company, which now in its second generation, is characterised by flat hierarchies and short decision-making processes.

Company founder Manfred J. Seitz and his sons Dirk Seitz and Patrick Seitz managed to transform aluplast into one of the most successful companies in its industry in just a few years. Four key factors played a major role in its success:

Our four ingredients for success

A strict product policy, close cooperation with our partners, flexibility and innovation have made us what we are today: Within only few years aluplast has turned into the most successful enterprise in the sector. aluplast has always been a family business and will remain so also in the future.

Innovation

Constant development and innovation is the key to our success. Every year, aluplast can proudly present market-driven product innovations. We analyse current market requirements to create products that satisfy the demand and meet our customers’ highest expectations.

Partnership

Our customers, partners and the whole aluplast staff are the centrepiece and the motor of our action. Close partnership and cooperation between the aluplast headquarters and our many different production plants and sales offices all over the world form a synergy everyone benefits from.

Flexibility

Flexibility is our greatest strength! Short communication channels, flat hierarchies and lean structures allow us to respond rapidly and dynamically to customer demands and market requirements.

Compatibility

“Compatibility” is the magic word of our product policy. The product serials match each other and can be combined with each other.

 

Sustainability and quality

Quality is one of aluplast's top priorities as it allows us to:
  • Achieve the highest level of customer satisfaction,
  • Create products with the best possible quality/value ratio,
  • Safeguard and extend our lead over the competition,
  • Build a basis that allows our employees to grow and improve.
Our focus on quality is reflected in our processes, systems, products, innovations and services. To achieve this, we are constantly creating a working environment that encourages our employees and suppliers to prevent defects and pursue excellent performance.

Sustainability and eco-managementAn ecologically sound production process and a sustainably designed workplace form a crucial part of the aluplast eco guidelines, which are reflected in our environment-friendly products.

For our Eco-Management system, we are certified according to ISO 50001. We have been able to significantly cut our energy consumption by introducing a new, highly-efficient compressed-air screw compressor, streamlining the energy consumption of production lines and applying a range of other measures. This means that our production facilities now have the lowest energy consumption figures in Europe.

Protect the environment actively with aluplast windows

Looking after our planet is the only option! And we are proud that our energy-saving windows help contribute to this. Anyone trying to reduce energy consumption in buildings has to start with the windows. Thanks to our innovative technology, you can count on our window systems with some of the best insulation figures around all the way up to passive-house standard.

Designed with recycling in mind

We'll start with the good news: PVC can be recycled up to seven times without any compromises in terms of material quality. We began thinking about recycling a long, long time ago. We not only helped to drive towards the creation of Rewindo an association dedicated to window recycling where uPVC window fabricators make a voluntary commitment to sustainable business we have also invested heavily in recycling facilities for our Karlsruhe site. When we start developing our innovative products, we factor in recycling right from the outset. Take our energeto windows, for instance: all of their materials can be separated with ease and then recycled.

The raw materials used for our window profiles are based on a calcium-zinc chemical stabiliser that is strictly lead-free. With this eco-friendly stabiliser and our involvement in VINYL 2010 (which implies the use of recycled materials in our plastic profiles. among other things), aluplast offers window systems that can be fabricated and recycled in an ecologically sound way.

Responsibility towards people and the environment

Our products come with EPDs, the European Environmental Product Declaration in accordance with ISO 14025 and EN 15804, which carefully document the eco footprint of our plastic windows over an average product lifecycle of 50 years.
