12 months / 12 spectacular corporate actions
The year 2020 was incredibly challenging for the world. An unexpected pandemic brought numerous changes in our daily lives, pushing us to reevaluate our habits and procedures.
In ALUMIL, from the very beginning of COVID-19 outbreak, we focused on the safety and health of our employees and supported society to the struggle against the virus. Most of all, we remained true to our values, focusing on our goals
with dedication and persistence. Thus, 2020 brought to us plenty of happy moments. The international presence of our company was enhanced, while the development of high-quality products remained the spearhead of our activities. Furthermore,
we launched ALUMIL Academy, the first private school for aluminium fabricators in Greece, contributing effectively to the growth of our industry and training the new and older generation of fabricators.
In addition, as a leading company, we embrace our responsibility for a positive contribution to the society. Therefore, we intensified our Corporate Social Responsibility actions, triggering initiatives that improve the living conditions and become a valuable relief for people who need it most. Lastly, the year ended on a high, with an event that made us proud: we organized ArXellence 2, ALUMIL’s international architecture ideas competition, asking from the global architectural community
to submit ideas about the redevelopment of western coastal area in Thessaloniki, Greece.
These are ALUMIL’s top 12 corporate milestones for 2020 (click on the images to read the corresponding articles):
The year begun vigorously, with the completion of a landmark project in Vancouver, Canada. Vancouver House, the innovative curved skyscraper, which was designed by the famous Bjarke Ingels Group architectural office, was
included in CNN’s list with the most anticipated buildings for 2020. The impressive tower was equipped with ALUMIL’s advanced SUPREME S700 system.
Tel Aviv is a modern city that never sleeps. “Da Vinci” project, a three-building complex – two skyscrapers and a 9-floor basement structure - goes beyond all the large-scale constructions in the area, expressing the vision
for innovation and high performance. ALUMIL equips the buildings of the complex with an advanced customized aluminium sliding system.
Our company participated in Belgrade Waterfront, one of the most ambitious European revitalization projects of the last decades. SUPREME S77 and SMARTIA M50 are the systems that were installed in Parkview
& Vista towers, reinforcing their energy performance and providing high wind-pressure resistance.
SMARTIA M78 is ALUMIL’s new unitized curtain wall system and it combines high quality, ease of installation and minimal aesthetics. Additionally, it offers static robustness, high resistance to wind-load and multiple customization
Smart Gate at the Acropolis Museum
Smart Gate is the advanced, highly accurate temperature measurement device developed by ALUMIL. This device is designed as a preventive method for buildings with high and constant passage of people. Acropolis Museum in
Athens, a landmark institution, is now among the buildings that use Smart Gate.
SMARTIA S67 URBAN
The new hinged system, SMARTIA S67 URBAN, follows the modern trend of industrial and minimal aesthetics. It harmoniously combines the industrial look with exceptional performance. Moreover, the system’s sturdiness and
its top anti-burglary resistance provide a sense of safety.
Most Sustainable Companies
Sustainability and the values of Circular Economy are at the core of our business model. This year our efforts were recognized and we were distinguished among 25 Greek companies, receiving the title of “Most Sustainable Company in Greece
2020”. The “Sustainable Greece 2020” event was held by QualityNet Foundation and among the participants was the elite of Greece’s corporate world.
SUPREME S91 – The best thermal insulation level in the world
SUPREME S91 (Hi version) was certified by the “Passive House Institute” with the world’s best thermal insulation performance for aluminium windows in the climate zone “Cool, temperate”. It was a very special moment for
our company in 2020. This recognition not only confirms our top technological know-how, but most of all it gives us the boost to carry on “building excellence every day”.
Construction excellence is not something negotiable for ALUMIL. We strive for high quality products and keep enhancing the skills of our partners. In this spirit, we created ALUMIL Academy, the first private school for
aluminium fabricators in Greece. The main goal of the Academy is to provide essential knowledge to new and older generations of fabricators, helping them to manufacture products characterized by top quality and advanced aesthetics,
satisfying every customer.
Corporate Social Responsibility
ArXellence 2 – ALUMIL’s international architecture ideas competition – was successfully completed, leaving participants with the best of impressions. The topic of the competition was the redevelopment of Thessaloniki’s
western coastal area and the creation of the city’s new Central Business District. The response of the global architectural community was tremendous: 1.464 registrations from 90 countries and 173 final submissions, that were evaluated
by our international voting Jury.
Cleanup of Thessaloniki’s sea water
ALUMIL’s Corporate Social Responsibility actions are always based on how to improve the living conditions of people. Following these values, we funded the cleanup operation of Thessaloniki’s coastal sea water, aiming to extract floating
garbage from Thermaikos gulf.
In 2020 ALUMIL published its first annual Sustainability Report, presenting in detail all the corporate activities that were conducted by having at their core the respect for people and the environment. The five sections of the Sustainability
Report include: Effective Corporate Governance, the Key Role of the Employees, Respect for the Society, Protection of the Environment and the Holistic Market Service.
