Innoval Technology, a UK based provider of independent technical expertise and former research centre of Alcan, has been acquired by Danieli of Italy.

Innoval will join the Fröhling and Danieli Wean United Divisions to form the Danieli Aluminium Strip Division.

Innoval Technology will continue to operate from its offices in Banbury, UK, with the same team and the same customer focus. Existing clients will find that it is very much ‘business as usual’ with the company providing the same confidential, independent service and impartial expert advice as it always has done.

The integration of Innoval Technology into Danieli follows five years of successful cooperation between the two companies in designing and marketing the Danieli Fröhling Diamond Mill; an entirely new concept in aluminium rolling mills. In the last two years alone, the mill has achieved many significant orders, including a universal Diamond Foil Mill for Nikkei Siam in Thailand, a 6-high Diamond Strip Mill for Aleris Europe in Belgium, and the world’s widest aluminium 6-high Diamond Mill for Kumz in Russia.
