A short story how everything began:

Company ALEMO was launched in 2007 by a courageous initiative of Dr. Ing. Andrea Sirk based on experience, passion for machinery and dedication to innovation.

With degree in Chemical Engineering he worked for five Years in a multinational company specialized in machinery for Steel Making, then as General Manager restructured a large nylon producing and reprocessing factory and then as entrepreneur restructured a PE foam producing and reprocessing company.

One day, soon after selling the PE foam company, he received a call from Brazil.  “Who can call me from Brazil?” he asked himself. It was a Brazilian entrepreneur, PE foam producer, who visited some years ago Andrea’s PE foam factory and where he saw an old twin-screw extrusion line revamped and reinvented by Andrea.  

The Brazilian entrepreneur asked Andrea: “Can You build one machine like this for me?”. Andrea’s reaction was sudden and instinctive – ”Yes” ! It was a straight answer from the heart.

In 2008 the Brazilian company started to produce PE foam on the new, ALEMO first EXT120 extrusion line, as can be seen on the photo below.

Today, ALEMO is a global leader in development and manufacturing of extrusion lines, lamination and other converting machinery for foamed products according to process and product requirements. ALEMO supplied extrusion lines and other Equipment to market leaders in almost every part of the World – Europe, North & Latin America, Australia, India, Russia, Japan and Central Asia.

ALEMO is specialized in manufacturing of foam machinery for production of Polyethylene (EPE), Polypropylene (EPP) and Polystyrene (XPS) foams. Packaging, Insulation, Automotive and Construction industry are the main areas where these foams are applied but not limited to.  

ALEMO has its own R&D team, but we cooperate with external partners and institutions as well. We are constantly looking for technical solutions to make better foam machinery. Machines that can produce better and more reliable products, using less raw materials, less energy, less manpower, more recycled material, making less scrap and pushing products to become circular economy compliant.

Rebranded LOGO and colours:

ALEMO is a Slovenian company of excellence, which has been designing and manufactoring machinery for foam extrusion and converting machinery since 2007. 

For this special 15th anniversary a new logo “A – FOAM MACHINERY” has been launched to emphasize the growing concept of what we do and what we are best of.

The new logo has kept its original well known “A” with the screw rotating arround and represents the company core foam superior extrusion technology, on-going research and  development and continuous improvements. 

Beside rebranding the new logo, we have also changed colours of our machinery to make the concept more uniform and recognizable.  This is why the main moving parts of machinery have now orange colour. 

AAA for ALEMO company:

ALEMO celebrates this year another successful milestone. We were rewarded with Certificate of international standard of Excellence in Creditworthiness and become on of the most reliable Slovenian business entities, entitled to use the internationally recognized Gold Creditworthiness status.
