An act of love for the special education community in Thessaloniki

Inspired by a sense of social solidarity and collective action, Aluminco S.A. Aluminco Aluminum Systems Industry stands by and supports the work of the educational community and special education.  In the light of its selfless offer, it replaced all the corridor glazing and the old worn-out frames of the 3rd Special Kindergarten of Thessaloniki and the Special Primary School of the Institute for Developmental Rehabilitation, in Pefka, Thessaloniki, by installing modern aluminium frames, which ensure increased safety levels, sound insulation, thermal insulation and energy upgrading.  The construction works were carried out with all safety measures and were successfully completed, creating a feeling of satisfaction for both the company and the students and teachers of the school.

The Headmistress of the Kindergarten, Mrs. Aikaterini Sidiropoulou, and the Director of the School, Mr. Konstantinos Notas, expressed their thanks for the donation of Aluminco and in their letters to the company’s management, they stated that with this intervention, the living and educational conditions in the two school units are significantly improved and at the same time the much desired energy savings are ensured.  Furthermore, they stressed that the immediate positive response to their request is a practical proof of Aluminco’s social responsibility and even more so with the sensitive area of the educational community, especially special education, as the recipient.

As stated by the President and CEO of the company, Mr. Argyris Karras, “this action is part of the flagship initiative “A planet to love”, which transfers Aluminco’s corporate values to a corporate responsibility program that focuses on ecological and social sustainability”.

Aluminco, with a leading position in the aluminium industry in our country and a strong international presence, recently announced the acquisition of an aluminium plant in Kalochori, Thessaloniki, thus securing the company’s fourth extrusion line with specifications to turn it into an export gateway to the markets of Southeastern, Eastern and Central Europe.  The new plant will meet the specifications of Aluminco’s existing production facility in Oinofita.  Focusing on sustainable development through the production of “green” aluminium, the Thessaloniki plant will create 120 new jobs in Northern Greece, highlighting the role it will play in boosting employment and stimulating the local economy.
