As a European Leader in the manufacture of cast iron counterweights, FMGC offers a product of premium quality. Machining is a crucial step in the production process of cast iron counterweights for material handling and off-highway vehicles.

Since the first investments in CNC-machining in 1990, FMGC has rapidly recognized and highly appreciated the potential of this manufacturing technique. Recently, the foundry has invested 3,2 million € in the purchase of a new machining machine, the powerful FPT Ronin EVO. This proves one more time the ambition of FMGC to continue being a leader in this field compared to the company’s competitors.

Key manufacturers as Linde, Toyota Italy, Liebherr who integrate a lot of machining in the production of their counterweights have trusted FMGC. High-quality machining makes it possible to meet the more and more complex engineering requirements and deliver a product, able to satisfy the specific market demands.
