Hammerer Aluminium Industries (HAI) Extrusion SRL has achieved ASI Performance Standard V2 (2017) Certification for the manufacturing of extruded aluminium profiles at its facility at Chisineu-Cris, Romania. The HAI site has four extrusion lines that have an annual production capacity of roughly 22,000 tonnes.
Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI) today announced that Hammerer Aluminium Industries Extrusion SRL has been certified against the ASI Performance Standard. The company produces extruded profiles for systems and machine engineering, as well as products for applications within electrical systems, heat sinks and heat exchangers.
The ASI Certification program was developed through an extensive multi-stakeholder consultation process and is the only comprehensive voluntary sustainability standard initiative for the aluminium value chain. The ASI Performance Standard (V2) defines environmental, social and governance principles and criteria, with the aim to address sustainability issues in the aluminium value chain. It sets out 59 criteria under the three sustainability pillars of Environment, Social, and Governance, which address key issues such as biodiversity, labour rights, Indigenous Peoples rights, and greenhouse gas emissions.
The independent, third-party audit of the Hammerer Aluminium Industries Extrusion SRL operation was carried out by TÜV Rheinland Cert GmbH.
“We congratulate HAI for achieving Performance Standard Certification at its Hammerer Aluminium Industries Extrusion SRL operations, making it the first ASI Certified extrusion plant in Romania. The company’s production of extrusions serves key industries like the transportation, building and construction, and industrial machinery sector, which take advantage of aluminium’s lightweighting, strength and conductivity properties. We are pleased to see HAI continue its ASI Certification journey by certifying additional facilities, further underscoring the company’s commitment to sustainability.”
– Fiona Solomon, Chief Executive Officer at ASI
“In view of our high motivation to continuously improve our business processes along the entire value chain and to make them sustainable, we are very proud to have now received the ASI Performance Standard for a further location of HAI Group – for our extrusion plant in Romanian Chisineu-Cris. After certifying our two casting plants in 2020 and our extrusion plant in Ranshofen this year – it’s the next step to contribute to a better future and make aluminium as part of the solution for the ambitions of the EU Green Deal.”
– Markus Schober, COO HAI Group
