At the Essen plant of TRIMET Aluminium SE, the seven millionth ton of aluminium was produced in the past week since the foundry's foundation. The jubilee aluminium was delivered in the form of highly specialised slabs to the company's long-standing customer Constellium Singen GmbH.

On the basis of this long and mutually productive collaboration, Constellium and TRIMET intend to intensify and extend their business relationship in the future.
