Leading aluminium surface finishing specialist DECO Australia is proud to announce their Associate Membership with the Aluminium Stewardship Initiative (ASI).

The ASI is a global non-profit standards setting and certification organisation, working with businesses involved in aluminium production to create a more sustainable aluminium industry. ASI assists companies in the aluminium value chain, including aluminium mining, fabrication and production, as well as businesses using aluminium packaging, in maximising the contribution of aluminium to the circular economy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the aluminium industry.

DECO’s range of timber look aluminium products aims to revolutionise construction, replacing timber as a viable alternative to cladding, decking and battens, as well as reducing logging and VOC release from timber stains and paints, and providing a non-combustible material suitable for compliant and energy efficient buildings.

DECO also provides protective coatings for industrial machined aluminium components, increasing longevity and reducing the need to manufacture new parts from virgin material.

“DECO Australia is an innovative manufacturer of quality aluminium building products and protective finishes. At DECO we are continuously striving to better our business, and we seek actively to surround ourselves with partners that we can collaborate with to meet our collective sustainable development goals,” said DECO Australia’s general manager Richard Hamber.

“Becoming an ASI member is an exciting opportunity as we continue to develop and pursue best practices for a more sustainable future for all.”

DECO is currently working towards a business-wide ISO 14001 environmental accreditation and has also implemented a range of energy-saving systems including over 300 solar panels, a water recycling program and infrared technology for its powdercoating process.
