The plant in Spain is located directly near Madrid in Alcalá de Henares and has been operating under the SAG flag since 2016. The focus is on the production of aluminium truck tanks and compressed air tanks for the truck industry. SAG Spain's speciality is just-in-time delivery, also overseas. The plant is a reliable partner of large OEMs in Spain as well as in Japan. The plant specialises in large series. It produces around 100,000 tanks and 50,000 compressed air tanks annually.

The Salzburger Aluminium Group operates two plants in Mexico. Plant 1 in Tlalnepantla/México City is also home to the administration, sales team and management. Plant 2 is a production site in Monterrey/Nuevo Leon.

SAG has been successfully active on the North American market for twelve years. With about 400 employees, major American car manufacturers such as General Motors, Chrysler and Ford are supplied with tanks and aluminium components, but also containers for air suspension systems and rheocasting lightweight structural parts.

The huge pan-american automotive market, in which SAG is present through its two production sites in Mexico, also offers enormous opportunities for other product lines. Due to the growing trend towards electric mobility and hydrogen vehicles, there are many opportunities for SAG to gain further market share with technologies and products as a pioneer in the areas of rheocasting and LH2 cryogenic tank systems.

The company is particularly proud of its high quality standards for all products and services. Only recently, SAG México received the Masters of Quality Award from Daimler Truck North America for the fifth time.
