Coimbra represents Exlabesa’s strategic consolidation
The latest addition to the group is the plant in Portugal. This newly built plant, located near Coimbra, specializes in the extrusion of aluminium profiles for the industrial sector. This investment is part of the consolidation of Exlabesa’s strategic position not only in the Iberian Peninsula but also in the southern European market.
For this purpose, a strategic location was chosen in the center of Portugal, less than two hours from the main cities of the country, such as Porto and Lisbon, and from the Spanish border. Coimbra is a riverside city, located on the banks of the Mondego. It has a medieval old town where the first University of Portugal is located, being one of the oldest and most important in Europe.
2 extrusion lines: 2800 tn / 2800 tn
Alloys: 6005, 6060, 6061, 6063, 6082, 6101 and 6106

This factory, built throughout the year 2022, has allowed to add more than 10,000 tn/year to the extrusion capacity of the Exlabesa Group. These new facilities of more than 10,000 m2, have two lines of 28 MN that allow the extrusion of high value profiles for different industries such as construction, infrastructures or the electrical sector. This factory, due to its technical capabilities and technology, is today one of the most advanced in Europe.
The strategic location of the factory in the center of Portugal, a country with an important industrial potential, allows us to serve not only the Iberian Peninsula but also to reach nearby European countries such as France or Switzerland thanks to Exlabesa’s logistic capacity.
In addition, the factory has a state-of-the-art vertical lacquering line that allows us to lacquer profiles of up to 7.5 m, with the highest quality
