Nadal is taken over by Purso OY, Finland



The hall where the manufacturing of the light poles took place was renovated and extended to 200 meters. An almost entirely new production line was set up here, including a sanding bench, aging oven and door robot.

Construction of the new hall where the diesshop department is still located today.



Installation of press 5. This press was purchased as a replacement for press 3. One of the main reasons for this was that the surface condition of the profiles would enormously improve.



Nedal takes over the anodizing company Alver from Vianen. In 2004, activities at this location were stopped, partly due to increased environmental aspects.



The first test pressing on press 4. With this press (pressing force of 5,500 tons), Nedal has the option of extruding profiles up to 30 meters long and weighing +/- 100 kg/m. The extrusion capacity at Nedal was also doubled with this press.



The name NAM on the facade will finally make way for the name as we know it to this day: Nedal. However, it was not until 1991 that the name was officially changed to Nedal Aluminum b.V.

Installation of press 3 at the old location of the Walserij. Initially, the intention was to press both the top and bottom profiles for the Hunter Douglas Luxaflex on this press. After only 27 years, it was decided to demolish press 3 to make way for press 5.



Acquisition of the Awep-NAM group by the Hunter Douglas Group. 



Press 2 was purchased. With this press larger and more accurate profiles could be pressed than with press 1. To this day, this press is still in full operation.



The festive installation of the 50,000th NAM light pole, also the 5,000th for Utrecht. This placement was accompanied by NAM's own drum band.



The rolling mill was expanded with a foil and quatro roller. The Foil Roller was used for printing and packaging aluminum for various (domestic) applications. The well-known aluminum foil was rolled on the Quatro roller.


Period 1950-1970

The dies shop within Awep-NAM was established during this period. Due to the increasingly complex profiles and dies, the company switched to external die suppliers at the end of the 1960s.



In this year, NAM started producing aluminum light poles.



Commissioning of the Hot Roller. This was demolished around the 1970s.


Period 1940-1945

During the Second World War, the Awep-NAM group was brought under the management of the German company Vereinigte Lichtmetal Werke GmbH from Hannover by the German occupiers. Anti-aircraft guns were also placed on the roofs of the building. After the liberation on May 5, 1945, the old management returned to rebuild the factory for production.



Establishment of the NV Aluminum Rolling and Pressing Companies (AWEP)

Installation of press 1, a hydraulic Schleümann press. This press served until 1967.

Installation of the Rolling and Foundry. In the rolling mill, the primary aluminum rolls (which were delivered by boat until the 1960s) were alloyed and melted down. In the Foundry, the liquid aluminum was further spontaneously and ultimately placed in the casting pit to make aluminum round press blocks or, for the roller, rectangular roller blocks. The Rolling and Foundry were closed in 2004.
