Summary

Summary: 
The Portuguese company manufactures a high-quality range of aluminium and zamak die casting, supplying the automotive, safety, tooling and lighting sectors and fabricators of doors in both domestic and international markets. The company is keen to expand their activity worldwide and therefore seeks new partners for collaboration on the basis of commercial agency, distribution or manufacturing agreements.

Description

Description: 

This well-established Portuguese company is in the business for seventeen years manufacturing aluminium and zamak die casting products.
This Portuguese company is one stop shop for aluminium and zamak castings, as it is dedicated to providing its customers and partners with precision die cast components in aluminium and zamak alloys, each with unique characteristics to match different applications.
The company’s die casting machines incorporate the latest technology to bring products that are constructed to the highest standards.
Alongside the aluminium and zamak die castings, the company offers a bespoke design service that is tailored to specific needs. Its design team works with the partner every step of the way from the development and design stages of an aluminium and zamak casting to the finished product. The company ensures castings of the highest quality, at a price that works for both parties through stringent value engineered cost reductions.
The process allows fast, precise, cost effective production of aluminium or zamak die castings, meeting the needs of hi-tech industries where product appearance and dimensional tolerances are critical.
The company offer its services for high volume orders but has also optimised its tooling preparation and set-up operations to make the process more accessible to partners who require smaller quantities.
The company’s technical team has been designing successful cast components for years, using its experience, expert knowledge and technology to provide partners with the functionality and aesthetics they need for their products.
The company provides in-house CNC machining services as a value-added operation to its partners for the supply of aluminium and zamak die castings.
The team’s advice on tool design can significantly reduce costs, as design is crucial to achieving the perfect die while keeping manufacturing costs to a minimum.
The Portuguese firm has been supplying customers in overseas markets, but now plans to grow the international side of its business and is therefore seeking to appoint either distributors or commercial agents for its die casting products. The company would also consider requests for manufacturing agreements with partners who are looking for a quality one-stop production partner.
