To be an engineering company specialized in Aluminium High Pressure Die Casting solutions, with machining and surface finishing.


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.
Today we continue our work with the automotive industry but we have expanded our client base to other industries such as the electronics, rail transportation, medical equipment and fluid control valves which demand high technical skills. We currently employ 90 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.
