At its extrusion plant in Argentina, Sapa has one press that is considered one of the most technically advanced presses in Latin America. The press is located at the plant in Pilar, not far from Argentina’s capital city Buenos Aires, which means in good air in English. Sapa has around 110 employees in Argentina and has been active in this market since 2001.
Argentina is also home to the world-famous soccer player Lionel Messi, the beautiful dance, tango, and, some would say, the world’s best Bife de Chorizo.
Sapa’s competitive capability, financial strength and technological superiority have enabled the company to meet the growing demands of Argentina’s industrial markets and its building and construction industry.
We believe our strengths in Argentina are:
“We are proud to have been accident-free for seven consecutive years and also for being awarded the President’s Award from Oslo. The award is given to the best plant in the company.
"This important achievement has been possible due to the determination and commitment of all the employees,” says Ricardo Wagner (pictured, holding jersey), who is general manager of the Sapa plant.
Projects we are proud of:
Sapa Argentina is active in some of the country’s largest architectural projects, especially the ones that require both energy-saving and sound-proofing solutions.
For these reasons, aluminum profiles from Sapa were used in constructing the façade for the Repsol YPF corporate building (right), which was designed by renowned and award-winning architect, Cesar Pelli.
