About Us

As Managing Director of UK Profile Components, I offer you my 30 years experience within the Aluminium Industry.

I worked for 15 years at the Alcan Extrusion plant in Banbury (later owned by Alcoa and finally by Sapa Profiles).

Originally working in the production department, I learned how the extrusion presses worked and was responsible for scheduling the work for three of the site’s seven presses. Later, I moved into sales and was responsible for clients in the UK as well as in Scandinavia.

Minalex joined the site in 1991. I saw this as a new challenge and decided to sell miniature extrusions.

A few years later, I became an account manager travelling across Britain to manage many of Alcoa’s customers. After Alcoa, I sold extrusion for Aluminium Shapes, a small two press operation in the UK. I was there for four years. I then joined NB Metals, an Aluminium stockholder and gained experience of dealing with overseas extruders.

In 2006 I decided to start my own business and formed UK Profile Components Ltd.

Stockholding service

Our warehouse management team handles your extrusions with care. Stock is carefully booked in and out. Outgoing stock is labelled with your part number, order number, length and any other detail you may require. Your extrusions are delivered on a dedicated vehicle – directly to your chosen destination.

We can also manage your stock for you, if you wish. You will have total visibility of your stock at all times with regular updates at each stock movement. We can provide automatic stock replenishment or we can discuss a tailored agreement. Deliveries typically 2/3 days from call off.

Alternatively we can supply directly from the mill.
