The 6,500 metric ton Danieli Press allows production of difficult, large extrusion profiles that utilize 16˝ billets to extrude 12˝/15˝ outside diameter tubing, 6.25˝ diameter bar, 18˝ floor boards, and up to 24˝ wide flat bar.

Aluminum Shapes’ steady growth, versatility, and ability to deliver on a large scale began in the 1980’s when the company was selected as the sole extruder/fabricator of aluminum scaffolding used in the high profile renovations of the Statue of Liberty and Washington Monument. That growth has accelerated to the present as the company has become the preferred provider/partner of aluminum extrusions for an ever-increasing base of companies across a wide range of building & construction, transportation, electrical, machinery & equipment, and durable consumer goods markets.
