Company profile

Since 1977 specialist in aluminium profiles

The name Caralu is an acronym of ‘CARrosserie ALUminium’ (Dutch for Aluminium Bodywork) under which the company has established a prominent reputation in the body- and coach work sector.

From the mid nineteen seventies, the use of aluminium profiles increased sharply, as they were also processed in a wide range of industrial applications. This applied to the bodywork, truck, trailer and caravan sector in particular. Imbema Rhiwa and Aluminium Verkoop Zuid therefore decided to join forces, and they founded the trading company known as Caralu B.V. in 1977. While the range of services that the company provides has expanded considerably throughout the years, Caralu’s core business remains the supply of a wide range of aluminium profiles, components and accessories. Caralu became a business unit of Aluminium Verkoop Zuid (AVZ) B.V. in January 2016.
