Competitive pick-up truck owners are relegating their truck tailgates to the scrap heap. This is all in reaction to GM’s new, industry-first MultiPro Tailgate that offers six unique functions to pick-up owners.

Why Aluminum Extrusion?

Design and produce nearly any shape—in a timely manner— through a low-cost process.

By offering designers a near net shape of their choice, aluminum extrusions are unrivaled among structural materials for design selection. The only limit is your imagination.

Extrusion Design Tips

Aluminum & Sustainability

Lightweight, strong, durable, corrosion-resistant, versatile, low-maintenance, flexible, fast.

Aluminum extrusions help product designers, engineers, and architects get to destinations that steel can’t reach. As one of the most recycled industrial materials, it also makes a substantial contribution to sustainability efforts.
