We are Sipral

We are Sipral

Sipral was founded in 1991. Since its origin we have focused on progressive building technologies. The original orientation was aimed at special cementing and sealing with silicone sealants and has gradually developed into supplies of all-glazed constructions where we started to use construction systems based on extruded aluminum profiles.

We have published a brochure: 'Sipral: Facts&Figures 2019'. There, you will find plenty of information about our company, our employees and our key projects.
