Mission Statement

Our mission statement and corporate values form the foundation of our daily work and commitment. These principles guide us in our efforts to provide excellent services and make a positive contribution to our community and the environment.

Code of Ethics

Alupress has the ambition to create high added value for its customers, to be a preferred employer for its employees and a prominent corporate citizen in society. Achieving this requires utmost integrity and professionalism. Success in our industry depends upon the trust of all our customers, our employees and our suppliers.
With the below Code of Ethics, we solidify this foundation in order to maintain and further expand this trust.

Organizational Model

Professional and proactive risk management plays a key role in our value-oriented corporate management procedures. For this reason, we established an Organisation, Management and Control Model at our Brixen site, pursuant to and for the purposes of implementing Legislative Decree 231/2001. In Italy, this model provides for criminal liability of legal persons and, thus, the company as a whole. This means that in the case of crimes listed under Legislative Decree 231/2001, both the person having committed the crime and the company are held liable.

In order to prevent such crimes being committed, our company conducted specific risk analysis and assessment.


To ensure that our products meet the highest quality standards, we regularly undergo various certifications. These prove our conformity with international standards and industry requirements.
