We are keen to develop our offering of finished parts to our clients, including machining and paint-coating. FBM has several machining centres on-site, suitable for mass production, complemented by traditional machine-tools for machining of unitary or short-series productions.
To further extend its range of services FBM relies on a network of certified manufacturing partners, capable to fulfil our clients’ specifications. Right from the cost calculation stage, the suitable partner is identified within our network, based on the part type and production method. At the start of production, a machining expert is closely involved in validating the first prototypes and pre-production samples. All parts are fully inspected before being sent to the client to ensure they conform to the client specifications.
For logistical follow-up FBM has a dedicated planner who coordinates all operations at the subcontractor. Further audits are performed annually to ensure the overall performance level is maintained.
As part of our comprehensive services integration for our clients, FBM offers assembly or kitting services.
The market demands lineside delivery and FBM is well-structured to accommodate this requirement. With the support of our team of certified suppliers, FBM offers delivery of complete kits according to agreed Bill of Materials. This service is offered both in France and internationally, with global supply chain management direct to clients’ production sites.
