MINO Selected for Bridgnorth Aluminium Cold Mill Expansion Project

Bridgnorth Aluminium (BAL) have selected MINO SpA of Italy to modernise and re-install their recently acquired cold rolling mill for their Bridgnorth works in Shropshire, England.

The contract forms part of a larger plan which BAL have embarked upon to expand their cold rolling facility. This award involves the use of a used cold rolling mill, purchased from Spain by BAL specifically for this project. The mill was removed from its previous site in Spain and relocated to England. It is now subject of a major redesign of its entry and exit arrangement along with its  modernisation. The upgrade will allow it to roll high quality rolled products such as Lithographic print sheet, up to a strip width of 1700 mm. BAL are one of the major producers of high quality lithographic plates for the printing industry and hold a significant market position in the sector of the aluminium semi’s industry.

The mill will be completely re configured and given a substantial upgrade with MINO designed equipment throughout. The mill will be installed in an existing factory unit which will also undergo substantial upgrade and refurbishment. Installation and start up supervision will also be part of the Mino scope of work. MINO has provided a multi disciplined team that has been chosen to work closely with the BAL project management from project conception to final acceptance.

The order follows other successful projects won in Italy, China, South Korea and Bulgaria in recent years confirming MINO as a market leader and key provider of Rolling mill technology around the globe.
