45 years ago in 1975, Jan Aalberts founded Mifa. At the time, aluminium extrusion was so unknown to the markets that Mifa was on the edge of bankruptcy after its first year in business. However, what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. That definitely held true in Mifa’s case. Mifa’s ‘perform better every day’ helped it become a total supplier of profiles and components for a number of different markets.
