TALUM d.d. Kidričevo

CO-CREATING THE FUTURE with aluminium.

Higher added value due to innovation and development partnerships

The strategic orientation of the TALUM Group is slim, energy-efficient, and environmentally friendly aluminium production and processing. TALUM belongs to a narrow range of the most efficient producers of electrolytic aluminium and aluminium alloys in the world.

We achieve growth with our above-standard billets, which have higher added value. We are among the world’s largest and most technologically advanced manufacturers of slugs for tubes and containers. Castings are important for our growth. Apart from low-pressure and gravity casting, we have successfully entered the segment of high-pressure casting of aluminium products. By developing new technological solutions, we maintain continuous growth in our heat exchanger production and expand our presence from refrigerating technology to other activities.

In our R&D innovation centre and in cooperation with external partners, we are developing new materials, products and technological solutions. Our core competitive advantages are know-how, creativity and innovation of our employees. Cooperation and synergies with external partners, lean and efficient processes, and an achievement culture are the cornerstones of our success.

Future orientation

  • Boosting innovation and development in all business segments, with an emphasis on sustainability and digitisation.
  • Focusing on increasing the number of employees due to our production and sales growth.

Milestones

2015–2018:
we began a new strategy with an emphasis on profitability through innovation, and launched highpressure mould casting; we had record production and sale of slugs.
2006–2007:
we established a new work unit – Castings, and produced the first castings using a gravity casting machine.
2001–2004:
we finished the second phase of modernising primary aluminium production by constructing the C2 Electrolysis Hall and a modern foundry.
1988–1992:
we entered the first phase in modernising primary aluminium production by constructing the C1 Electrolysis Hall, equipped with a new prebaked anode technology. TALUM ranks among the most modern aluminium manufacturers.
1981:
we began producing narrow and wide aluminium strips and wires, as well as slugs and evaporators.
1954:
aluminium was poured out of an electrolytic furnace for the first time. A year later, regular production began.
