Fifty years of innovation

Sapa AS was established as a joint venture in September 2013. But the history of our operations goes back more than 50 years.

The history of Sapa started in 1963, when two Swedish entrepreneurs started producing aluminum extrusions at a single-press operation in Vetlanda, Sweden. Growing organically and through acquisitions, the company entered the 21st century as the leading aluminum extruder in Europe and, later, the United States.

Helping you develop

We offer technical and application development support from all our manufacturing plants. We also have specialized engineering teams at R&D centers in the United States, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, and Sweden.

Fifty years later, in 2013, the organization took a major step by joining forces with the aluminum extrusion operations of Norsk Hydro. This made the new Sapa the largest manufacturer of engineered aluminum solutions in the world.

Today, Sapa is a 50/50 joint venture between Orkla and Norsk Hydro. We are headquartered in Oslo. With more than 100 plants in 40 countries, Sapa is one of the world's leading manufacturing companies.
