Aluminium Extrusions for all Industries

Capital Aluminium Extrusions Ltd (Capalex), is an aluminium extrusion manufacturer and machining company with all extrusion, heat treatment, machining, fabrication, powder coating, and assembly facilities at a single site in Cleator Moor, Cumbria, United Kingdom.

Providing a greater range of alloys and more flexibility on profile design, tolerances, quantities, and lead times than almost any of the larger scale commercial extrusion companies, Capalex is well placed to help designers developing new products, or industries where flexible lower quantities, better tolerances and responsive quick deliveries are paramount.

Capalex can also help when there is need for a very lightweight aluminium extrusion, producing profiles down to 0.02kg/m and 0.5mm thickness.

Customers range from one man engineering shops to some of the biggest multinationals, spanning every market sector including: architectural, automotive, defence, display, electronics, engineering, furniture, leisure, marine, product design, retail, rail, and signage.
