The rapid growth of FCF led to the establishment of SMI in 1990: initially a marketing company for FCF products, SMI later became a manufacturing and management headquarters, with modern technical, administrative and marketing offices and new plant engineering, assembly and painting departments. In the two year period between 1998 and 1999 several other important targets were achieved: ISO 9001 certification for SMI and ISO 9002 for FCF, as well as the acquisition of IMEV, a company specializing in heavy structural work.
SMI's machines and equipment are suitable for many uses and are currently used by several different industrial partners:
• heat exchanger manufacturers;
• HVAC parts manufacturers;
• Automobile industry parts manufacturers;
• HVAC sector industries;
• industries that manufacture domestic appliances, fridges, hobs.
