The United Kingdom is the home of Buckingham Palace, Stonehenge and famous football teams such as Manchester United and Liverpool. On this island, you can find beautiful sceneries in the Highlands of Scotland, charming villages and the vibrant city life in London. If you visit the UK, do not forget to enjoy a 5 o'clock tea, or grab a pint with fish 'n chips at the local pub.

Our safety advice:
Safety is about watching out for each other and concentrating on the job in hand.
We believe our strengths in the UK are:
“Our strength is undoubtedly in our people. Many of them have given us loyal service for several years,” says Nigel Sissons (pictured), who heads Sapa Building Systems in Tewkesbury.
A project we are proud of:
Sapa Profiles UK helped DAF redesign its 12-tonne light truck and delivered the aluminium profiles for the project. The result was a truck with increased payload, lower fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions – in short, a greener and more efficient truck. The project succeeded by introducing an innovative and patented chassis design with extensive use of light materials.
Cycling for charity:
Sapa in the UK has arranged several charity events, such as The Charity Cycle Ride. The cycle ride leaves Sapa Tibshelf and follows an 86-mile route to the Clock Tower in Skegness. The charity has benefited The Enable Resource Centre in Tibshelf – a day center for adults with severe mental, physical and learning disabilities – and the Tibshelf Community School, for its “Project Sri Lanka.”
