Manchester - 5 November 2011

Magnesium Elektron today announced the establishment of a dedicated sales office to support increased demand for their magnesium extrusion products. The new office is located in the Denver, CO area and will be covering all of North America for Magnesium Elektron’s extruded products. These products include AZ31B, AZ61A, AZ80A, ZK60A, M1A, Elektron WE54, Elektron WE43, Elektron ZW3 and Elektron ZM21 plus customer defined alloys.

Wire, rods, bars, profiles and sections can all be extruded in a variety of magnesium alloys, ranging from 1/16” dia wire to 12” circumscribing circle custom sections. Solid bar and section provide the perfect base for machining lightweight magnesium components, whilst hollow profiles allow very light, near net shapes to be easily integrated into your component. Magnesium Elektron’s magnesium extrusions can also be used as high quality feedstock to forge aerospace, defense and motorsport applications. Magnesium Elektron offers assistance in design and alloy selection with an excellent understanding of the economic needs of today’s rapidly changing new product development process.

Magnesium Elektron’s UK-located magnesium extrusion facility now supplies high quality extruded magnesium products to a worldwide customer base. Our technical sales team, based in the US and the United Kingdom, help customers experience the best in magnesium extrusion services.
