From production plant to centre of excellence
The Turnov site was the first SFS subsidiary in Eastern Europe when it was founded in 1996. Building the new production facility began in 2004, followed by the creation of the administration centre in 2008. The original product facility was mainly focused on the manufacture of cold formed components and semi-finished products for various industries and the construction sector. Investment in a HT line, a laboratory for fastener development work and new equipment for optical sorting created the infrastructure for the manufacture of threaded fasteners for the automotive sector. Four years of planning and preparatory work followed before, in 2019, the first projects reached series maturity: from the initial advice and engineering design support through to development and manufacture, featuring complete SPC quality control systems for customers like Continental, ZF and Bosch.
