Farsund Aluminium Casting AS
Farsund Aluminium Casting AS (FAC)
FAC is located in the very South of Norway. Our highly automated low pressure die casting facility is capable of a range of production volumes and on average we cast one and a half million parts per year.
Using the Alcoa developed VRC/PRC process, our super-large casting machines and sand core technology makes it possible to produce large hollow parts with a high degree of design freedom. FAC benefits from its location next to the neighbouring smelter (Alcoa) who deliver high grade molten aluminium every hour directly into our receiving furnaces.
We specialize in safety critical and light weight chassis parts for the main stream automotive industry but have extended our expertise into other areas where weight, strength and tight tolerances are key. Our business runs to the highest standards and we can boast certification to ISO 9001, TS 16949 and ISO14001 for all our processes from design through to delivery.
FAC is proud to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious Årets Norske Ingeniørbragd for 2011 (Outstanding Engineering Achievement Award for Norway).
FAC is a full service design partner
FAC is able to take a design from target requirements through all stages of development and into high volume production
