The Salzburger Aluminium Group is an international supplier of aluminium components and systems for the automotive and commercial vehicle industries and of high-performance materials for the processing industry. Due to a sharp fall in demand as a result of the global economic crisis, revenues declined from EUR 339 million in 2008 to EUR 170 million in 2009. This loss of earnings triggered a crisis that threatened the company's survival.
