Nova Fundínio

Nova Fundínio, S.A. produces aluminium high pressure die casting parts for the automotive industry, telecommunications, rail transportation, and others, that require high technical skills. As support activities we have developed an important know-how in machining, assembling and painting (outsource), providing a wide range of possibilities for our clients’ projects.

Mission

To produce high technical demanding parts, through a continuous improvement management philosophy, providing our clients with the best quality products and service, respecting their specific requirements, at the most competitive prices, and preserving the environment.

Vision

We believe in the diversification of markets and business branches. In that sense we have developed an expertise in the production of parts in which the aesthetic plays a role as important as the functional aspect.

History

Our history goes back to 1969 with the foundation of INDUFER, a pioneer in Portugal in high pressure aluminium die casting. At the time our main business activity was the production of home appliances, ironware and cutlery. In 1984 with the new company designation EMOAÇO we have begun working for the automotive and lighting industries. Fundínio is born in 1995 as a result of a company bailout program, absorving all of Emoaço, and keeping its line of business. In August 2010 NOVA FUNDÍNIO, S.A. is established, as a spin-off of Fundínio. Today we continue our work with the automotive industry but we have expanded our client base to other industries such as the telecommunications, rail transportation, and others, which demand high technical skills. We currently employ 100 workers within a facility of 11.600 m2 including 7.700m2 of built area in Senhora da Hora, 2 km away from Porto, minutes away from the city's harbour and the international airport.
