During its 50 years in business, Friulsider has expanded rapidly and now occupies an area of 61.000 m2 (23.000 m2 under cover), inside which the offices and production lines are housed. To meet all the market requirements, from building to engineering, from the mechanical industry to carpentry, Friulsider is constantly extending its product range, which currently encompasses a total of 10.000 items.
The 120 production machineries guarantee the full operation of four product lines, providing for each of them a complete range:
- metallic and plastic anchors
- fixings for roofs and facades / bimetal screws
- screws and fixings for wood
- standard nuts, bolts, screws and fixings for metal and wood.
Friulsider is currently distributed in a stable manner in over 30 European countries, and has a total global coverage of over 70 countries. It is not a coincidence that the company develops more than 40% of its turnover abroad, testimony to an expansion that is growing exponentially. The merit is definitely the ability to rapidly meet all the market demands by virtue of a product and marketing management strongly oriented towards flexibility, capable of studying development strategies tailored to the different needs of different countries.
Research & Development
With the focus always on technological innovation, Friulsider has a design facility that is at the cutting edge, equipped with the most modern digital CAD 3D tools. This allows for the continuous development of projects for new and more advanced products as well as process technologies necessary for the industrialisation of such products. The products are tested in the first class “Test Laboratory”, where the validity verification of selected theoretical models is carried out and the technical and operational specifications are certified. The Laboratory is fully equipped for the entire ETA test procedures on any type of support, including cracked concrete, and tests are carried out up to an extraction value of 500kN
Friulsider has aligned itself to the European Construction Products Regulation CPR 305/2011/EU, attaining European certifications for a total of over 1.500 fixings. Due to its tendency for applied research, Friulsider was also one of the first companies in Europe to have a range of mechanical C1 and C2 certified anchors for structural use in high risk seismic zones.
The type and range of Friulsider’s products, on one hand, and the determination of the Company to provide optimum assistance, on the other, demand a very signi cant logistics organisation. A sophisticated digital system ensures the rapid processing of orders and the precise management of warehouse stocks, where 16,000 places/pallets are available. Friulsider’s Material Requirements Planning steers the production planning, ensuring that:
- 95% of items are available immediately
- 92% of the orders are sent the day after receipt of the request.
Friulsider guarantees a high standard of pre- and post-sales service: the company’s technicians are trained to offer on-site consultancy in order to resolve any technical or installation problem. Furthermore, personalised training courses can be provided on request, including at the client’s own premises.
Quality and environment
Customer satisfaction, product quality and service offered, environmental protection and safety of workers have always been the primary goals for Friulsider. To achieve these results, the Company adopted an Integrated Management System based on international voluntary standards: in 1998 it achieved the Quality Management System ISO 9001 certification and in 2002 it obtained the Environmental Management System UNI EN ISO 14001 certification. Over the years Friulsider successfully managed the adaptation to the revision of the standards starting with the Vision 2000 (ISO 9001: 2000), which introduced the process approach and focused on fundamental concepts such as customer focus and continuous improvement. Friulsider has also recently obtained the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certifications and adopted the requirement of Risk Based Thinking.
