Corialis (Core Innovative Aluminium Integrated Solutions) is a leading player in the design and manufacturing of high quality, technologically-advanced aluminium systems for in-wall (windows, doors, sliding elements, roof systems, curtain walls), indoor (partition walls, fire-resistant doors) and outdoor (balustrades, conservatories).
As a fully vertically integrated player, we are active in the extrusion, insulation, painting and distribution of high quality aluminium systems to thousands of local fabricators. We serve both the residential and the commercial markets, with a focus on the residential renovation and light commercial markets.
In 1984, Corialis was founded as a family-owned company in Lokeren, Belgium. Thanks to our successful vertical integration strategy, Corialis grew from a local family-owned company into a Pan-European leader.
Corialis’ headquarters are located in Lokeren, Belgium. In addition to its production facility and headquarters in Belgium, Corialis has several plants around the world. We refer to our main facilities as ‘Hubs’ which are located in Lokeren (Belgium), Montpellier (France), Bristol (UK), Lublin (Poland) and Porto (Portugal). Moreover we have facilities in Le Tampon (La Reunion Island), Johannesburg (South Africa) and Belgrade (Serbia).
