F/List has established its own Metal division, having expanded its machinery and expertise in metal production continuously over recent years.
International customers, including well-known aircraft manufacturers and carpenters, are already making use of F/List’s metal department. This means its metal components are already being used in business jets, yachts and residences, either as intricate parts or as decorative eye-catchers.
“It’s F/List’s particular strength to be able to implement all processes in-house,” said Andreas Aigner, managing director at F/List and head of the Metal business unit. “This includes the production of high-precision metal parts that meet the most demanding customer requirements.”
Founding its own Metal division is another milestone for the long-established Austrian company. The new business unit will continue to handle the production of metal components for F/List’s various branches, but will also tap into new markets where precision work is required.
“By establishing a dedicated business unit, we also aim to supply other industries in the future, independent of the furniture industry,” said Aigner.
All metal work, from welding to polishing, is carried out by experienced specialists in a modern metal workshop. It can cater for everything from a batch size of one or a bulk order, a prototype or a small series. All processes – from material purchasing to engineering, manufacture, surface treatment and assembly – are handled under one roof.
The product portfolio includes a wide variety of precision parts made of alloyed as well as unalloyed steels, non-ferrous metals and various types of plastics.
F/List has been training apprentices in metal production since 2014. Four apprentices have already qualified and three are currently in training. In 2021, for the first time, the family business is offering apprenticeships in mechatronics, with the main module, production engineering, hosted at its headquarters in Thomasberg, Austria.
