Aluminium profiles

Aluminium profiles – reliably and cost-effectively

Nearly all of our production consists of aluminium profiles tailored to meet our customers’ needs. However, Mäkeä Alu also offers much more – thanks to our unique service concept, we have become part of the production process of many of our customers. Our customer-oriented AluServices concept, which utilises automation, allows us to offer a cost-effective and reliable service package.

We specialise in manufacturing tailor-made aluminium profiles and offer services that provide added value for our customers: we call this service package AluServices. These include warehousing services and various profile surface treatments. We have several decades of experience in the production of aluminium profiles. Aluminium as a material is well suited for extrusion. Extruded profiles can be used, for example, in various fittings and light but sturdy structures.

Let us know what you want: we can provide everything you need as a turnkey solution, from the idea to the finished product. It’s also worth noting that we manufacture aluminium profiles for several different industries, so our highly versatile product range covers practically all applications. We do not compete with our customers – our goal is to fit seamlessly into their production chain.

Customer profiles

Aluminium profiles customised to order

We can manufacture aluminium profiles tailored exactly to your business needs. We supply aluminium profiles to several window, door and balcony glazing manufacturers, as well as to manufacturers of various rails, lighting solutions, and solar panels. Our aluminium profiles can be found in many different industries and applications.

All the aluminium profiles we manufacture are extruded at our factory in the village of Luoma-aho in Alajärvi. We have three extrusion lines that are able to produce aluminium profiles weighing between 100g/m and 10kg/m. The maximum size depends on the shape of the aluminium profile: usually the cross section must fit inside a circle with a diameter of 170–220 mm. From the extrusion line, the aluminium profiles are delivered to the customer, our warehouse, or for further processing at lengths of 2–14 metres. Thanks to our further processing network, we are able to offer a wide range of solutions to our customers.

Contact our sales department and let us know what kind of profiles you need. We will help you design the perfect product that meets your requirements. Of course, we also manufacture aluminium profiles based on finished designs. You can find more information about the design of aluminium profiles in the Profile Design section.


Standard profiles

_DSF1607 kopio

Hundreds of standard profiles to choose from

Our standard range of profiles consists of commonly used standard shapes and includes several hundred options with different dimensions.

The standard length of the profiles is 6 meters, but our customers can also order profiles with a specific length. Available alloy options generally include all of Mäkelä Alu’s alloys, but the alloy’s suitability for the intended purpose should be discussed with our sales department.

Standard profiles can also be surface treated, for example by painting or anodizing, and our further processing network can be used to create the final product.

Contact our sales in case you can´t find profile you are looking for.

Aluminium alloys

Choosing the right alloy for each purpose

Aluminium is light, strong, corrosion resistant, recyclable, durable and tough and it conducts heat and electricity very efficiently. These characteristics make it an ideal material for countless different purposes.
Choosing the ideal alloy for each purpose is a critically important step in profile manufacturing. The professional skills of our sales department and profile designers are at your service. Purity and even alloy quality are important when aiming to produce high-quality, dimensionally accurate aluminium profiles.   That is why we only use billets smelted from primary aluminium in the Nordic countries when manufacturing our profiles. Nordic billets are the purest in the world, thanks to the methods used to produce them.The waste produced in the process is collected and re-used as profile material in our own foundry: this way we can ensure the purity of our materials in every phase. The mechanical and chemical properties of the profiles we make are defined by the EN 573-3 and EN 755-2 standards.

Frequently asked questions about aluminium profiles

Do you have questions about aluminium profiles production or design? We have collected here some of the most frequently asked questions, but you can always contact our sales for more answers. Our sales will help you to define what kind of profile you need and what kind of help you need for designing it.

  1. Where can I find instructions for how to start designing my product? 
    The profile design guide will help you in the process.
  2. If I buy design services from Mäkelä Alu, do I also have to order the products from you?
    Not att all.  After the design process, we will make you an offer on the manufacturing of the profiles. The die and profiles will only be ordered after the order is accepted.
  3. How does the pricing of the design services work?
    Basic design work related to profile, as well as other closely related design work, is free of charge. A price for the design work will only be agreed on if and when the design work is expanded to cover assemblies, strength calculations, model pieces and so on. The price will be agreed before work is started.
  4. What do I need to do before ordering design services?
    Think about what type of design work you need done (even if you only have a rough idea) and contact our design service.
  5. How do I order design services?
    Either by contacting our sales department or directly contacting our design unit.
  6. How do I order the manufacturing of the aluminium profiles?
    By contacting our sales department or sending an e-mail to sales(at)
  7. How much do aluminium profiles weigh? 
    Mäkelä Alu manufactures profiles that weigh between 0,1 kg/m and 10 kg/m. From the extrusion lines, the profiles are delivered to the customers or for further processing at a lenght of 214 meters.
