Jet Technologies is launching a new in-house aluminium brand – AluJet – which it says offers a diverse range of quality aluminium sheets and coils to the Australian market.

According to Jet Technologies, the AluJet line features a range of aluminium solutions “of the highest quality and reliability”, including painted and embossed aluminium materials. The company says the range offers a diversity of applications including architectural products; marine; transport; roofing; general engineering and fabrication; and insulation.

Jet Technologies’ AluJet brand will be driven by business development manager Brad Foster, providing local service, stock and immediate despatch across Australia.

Foster said: “We are excited to be launching this new AluJet brand in Australia as part of the wider Jet Technologies business. At Jet Technologies we have a long history of providing the latest innovations to the manufacturing industry, and with a number of leading Australian and multinational clients, we are proud to be expanding our aluminium offering.”

Jet Technologies is launching the AluJet range in collaboration with its 20-year partner and supplier Hindalco.

Jet Technologies director Jack Malki said: “With the combination of Hindalco’s rolling mills in India, fed by state-of-the-art local smelters, and a footprint spanning a further nine countries, alongside Jet Technologies’ expertise in aluminium and aluminium finishing, we are well placed to support the Australian market.

“Likewise, by working with Hindalco as our supplier, we can source high quality rolled products for our customers from the world’s largest manufacturers outside of China, which offers a number of supply chain advantages.”

Jet Technologies is a member of the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA).
