Facts & Figures

Milestones in aluplast's company history

A leading innovator in just 35 years

The family-owned company aluplast was founded in Ettlingen (near Karlsruhe in Germany) in December 1982 by Manfred J. Seitz. It has taken aluplast a mere 30 years to transform into a global company, while also protecting its roots as a family-run business.

The company is now managed by Dirk Seitz (CEO) and Patrick Seitz (CMO), the original founder's two sons. In January 2016, Stefen Walter joined the aluplast management team, taking over the areas of production, logistics, quality management and planning operations in his role as COO. Eric Bobay became the final director to join the aluplast team on 1 June 2017: As CBDO, he is in charge of strategic business development.

2016 & 2017 | Award-winning

aluplast ranks among the TOP100 most innovative middle-sized enterprises. To receive this accolade, aluplast took part in a specialist multistage selection procedure in which its innovation management and innovation success were evaluated. The mentor of the innovation contest, Ranga Yogeshwar, honoured the top innovators at this year's German Summit for Medium-Sized Companies on 24 June in Essen, Germany.

2015 | energeto® 5000 view

The latest aluplast innovation attracts a great deal of attention. With the sash completely concealed behind the frame overlap, aluplast provides an interesting design solution that meets the trend towards clearly-structured, delicate facade designs. To the delight of fabricators, energeto® 5000 view can be integrated into mass production processes.

2013 | New modular lift-and-slide door 85 mm

It is the modular system that makes aluplast's lift-and-slide door so unique on the market. Depending on the thermal insulation properties required, the door can be fabricated in three different designs, including one suitable for passive house solutions. Fabricators are particularly enamoured with its simple design.

2012 | 30 years of aluplast

The innovative experts from Karlsruhe celebrate thirty years of successful innovation with business partners, customers and friends. With company founder Manfred J. Seitz handing over the reins to his two sons, Patrick and Dirk Seitz, aluplast retains its status as a family-run business.

2011 | Opening of the technical forum and laminating hall

Inspecting products, testing prototypes, training fabricators in new systems and technologies, preparing demo models... aluplast has created the best possible environment for all of these tasks by investing in its new window technical forum. The conditions are ideal for staff thanks to the spacious hall, a wide range of machinery and plenty of natural light provided by large windows and facades.

2010 | The best window in its class

The existing energeto® system is marketed as a high-end foam-based product and has some of the best stats on the market, even with low construction depths. "energeto® | foam inside" is therefore rated the best window in its class.

2009 | energeto®

With energeto® – the metal-free window system – aluplast has created a new milestone in window technology. The system was launched for mass production in 2009.

2008 | A double anniversary
