Our mission

The system solutions combine the best material characteristics of aluminium and aluminium-composite materials with economic assembly and high quality design -- sustainable and flexible. The interplay of heroal system solutions makes energy conservation easier, building safer, and they make a valuable contribution to the sustainability of buildings. This counts for industrial, commercial and private areas.


Reconciling economic efficiency with sustainability is a challenge that heroal gladly accepts. This is the path we have chosen and we will continue to pursue this path in the future. Numerous examples of this can already be found in the company – starting with our choice of materials and how we conserve energy during production through to how we distribute heroal products in the most environmentally-friendly way possible.

Using resources responsibly is part of heroal’s corporate philosophy. Because of this, we use recycled aluminium in our products. We use resource-efficient materials wherever possible; for example, in the heroal W 72 window solution: The thermal break used as insulation is made from 62 per cent renewable resources.
