Dedicated to quality, committed to precision

The automotive industry is under pressure to meet regulatory requirements, including to reduce greenhouse gases. A critical element of this goal is to reduce the weight of vehicles. In 2014 and 2015 there was a major switch from the use of traditional steel to aluminium in automobile production, including the replacement of advanced high strength steel (AHSS) with aluminium. This is a trend that will only increase in the coming years.

ETEM is able to draw upon forty years of industrial metallurgical experience. In addition, the company has continuously invested in state-of-the-art technological equipment and highly skilled people. As a result, ETEM has become a significant supplier of aluminium profiles, and aluminium semi-finished and finished products, to the automotive industry.

The automotive industry’s strict norms and requirements require highly certified and standardized procedures. ETEM is committed to delivering quality products according to specification, and collaborates and forms partnerships with accredited organizations and laboratories throughout Europe (for example, Institut für Korrosionsschutz in Dresden, National Technical University of Athens) in order to test and certify products and processes.

ETEM is certified for the production of CRASH RELEVANT aluminium profiles and is an accredited TIER 2 and TIER 1 Automotive supplier, making products directly for the automotive industry and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

ETEM’s objective is to clearly understand each customers’ needs and processes, and to provide them with value added products that help them to achieve their goals. With a dedicated, creative and highly skilled Research and Development team with extensive experience in the automotive sector to call on, ETEM collaborates with customers right from the preliminary stages of a project to help achieve the desired outcome.
