Astro Aluminium was founded in 1998 by our Managing Director, Andrew Dawson, to supply aluminium extrusions to the industry. These extrusions include standard sections in the form of angle iron and tubing, along with rolled product such as anodised quality sheet and tread plate. The business soon evolved to accommodate the supply of purpose specific configurations needed by certain industries. An early objective was to establish a comprehensive manufacturing capability to produce high-quality finished and semi-finished products to client specification.
