The SHL-Alubin company is one of the largest aluminum
profile producers in Israel. The company designs, manufactures and markets all
types of systems and aluminum profiles. The product range includes opening
systems for construction, customized profiles for industry, and aluminum used
in aviation. The Alubin company was founded in 1958, and was merged with SHL
(founded by the late Arieh Segal in 1973) in 1998, thus creating the Alubin‑SHL
company. The concern enjoys economies of scale, while combining the power of
two veteran and highly sophisticated industrial plants. The company produces
700 tons of aluminum profiles every month, for local and international markets,
in the industrial and construction fields.
The company is active in the industrial and
construction sectors (60% of profiles are intended for construction and 40% for
industry), and owns subsidiaries that focus on fields requiring special
expertise and innovation.
The company develops and manufactures all
types of opening systems and aluminum profiles for residential and commercial
construction and for various industries and offices. Its products include
standard profiles, profiles produced according to customer requirements and
specifications, and unique systems developed and produced by the company.
Industry: The Company
designs and produces profiles for a variety of industries, including hi‑tech,
air conditioning, signage, security, medical industries and automobiles. Our customers
in these fields benefit from the expertise of the company staff, who design and
produce all possible profiles according to the customer's requirements, and from
the company's operational and logistical flexibility, and the high quality and
finish of our products.
Aviron: A fully-owned
subsidiary that produces aluminum for the aviation industry. The company has recently
received the Standards Association stamp AS-9100, which authorizes it to
produce aviation aluminum for all the aeronautical and space industries – both security-
and civilian-based – in Israel and around the world.
Segal Bikes: A
subsidiary that designs, produces and markets magnesium bicycles for road
cycling, triathlon and off-road cycling, and customized bicycles. The company's
magnesium alloy is 33% lighter than aluminum, has high strength-to-weight ratio
and high durability, and is easy to process at medium temperatures; this
combination of properties make it ideal for bicycle production.

Values and strategy
SHL-Alubin focuses on innovation and the provision
of added value to our customers. The company provides its customers with all
its aluminum requirements in a one stop shop, while keeping to schedules, modifying
its products to the specifications and requirements of the customer, implementing
strict quality control to ensure the highest quality products, and providing
advice, support and instruction regarding product customization, installation
The company takes care to encourage
innovation and creativity, while maintaining openness to ideas of all types and
from all sources, starting from streamlining suggestions from production-line
employees, to ideas for revolutionary products, and implementation of
technologies invented by academics and experts working in the field. The
company takes care to maintain a flat (horizontal) organizational structure, devoid
of bureaucracy or bias, giving customers and workers direct access to senior management
levels, where they will find a willingness to listen to ideas, suggestions, clarifications
and remarks. All of the above are found under one roof – from end to end.
The production chain starts in the
development department, where a highly experienced team of technical experts
develop and design systems and profiles according to customers' requirements,
or designs made by engineers, architects and other innovators.
The designs are transferred to the trusted
hands of the die department, which designs and produces dies to be used during
the profile production process. The department is able to produce 50 dies a
week. The process continues at the SHL-Alubin foundry, where raw materials and
additives are fused into standard or advanced alloys with advanced mechanical
and physical properties; the alloys are analyzed with a spectrometer and are
cast into round molds for creating aluminum billets.
The billets are transferred to the profile
production department, which has 4 presses; these machines use innovative
technologies in order to extrude high quality profiles, with diameters starting
from microns up to 280 mm (blocking circuit diameter).
Then the profiles are transferred to the
company's coating department, which consists of two sub-departments: anodizing
and painting. The company's sophisticated anodization line was the first to
receive approval from the Standards Institution of Israel (SII). The painting
process is based on use of electrostatic powder. The company has 4 baths for
profile anodization with a length of up to 7 meters, and 2 powder painting
The company has Standard Association stamps
for profile production and finish, and a quality system approved according to
Over the years, Alubin-SHL products have been
integrated into many construction and industrial projects in Israel and around
the world. The major projects from recent years include:
The Heart Institute in
Ha'uma" project in Jerusalem
Ben-Gurion Airport Project
"Sky 2" tower,
The company sponsors the "Gilboa
Galil" basketball team and the Maccabi Jaffa football school, which assists
in the rehabilitation of at-risk youths through sport. The company contributes
to the Association for the Wellbeing of Israel's Soldiers (AWIS), and to the
Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (SPNI), and it provides
scholarships to needy students. In the framework of support for industry, the
company supports the "Shoham" vocational school in Haifa, and has voluntarily
established designated class rooms, with equipment and professional experience donated
by the company.
Care is taken to reduce the ecological impact
of the company and its customers, while creating a cleaner and healthier
environment. The company has purchased chimneys for toxin adsorption, at a cost
of 700,000 euro, as part of its
ongoing efforts to preserve the quality of air in the Haifa Bay area. The
company recycles all metal overruns through its foundry, and sells the
remaining sludge from the production and painting processes to companies that
utilize it in a variety of ways. The company also manufactures products that
assist in environmental preservation, by reducing energy consumption for regulating
building temperatures. In this context, it is worth mentioning in particular systems
that include complete thermal insulation (by the use of a polyamide layer
between the aluminum profiles), and the Seasons Window that was developed at Ben-Gurion
University, which enables a reduction of up to 40% in energy consumption
intended for temperature regulation, in winter and summer.
