The Spanish Federation of Foundry Associations (FEAF) is formed by the union of the Foundry Association of the Basque Country an Navarre (AFV) and the Foundry Association of Catalonia (AFC), the two most important regional foundry organizations in Spain. Our associates include equipment from the most modern installations to a handcrafted foundry, for which reason we are capable of manufacturing any type of cast piece.
The FEAF groups together 152 associate companies and it is principally made up of ironworks (51companies, 81% of the production) followed by those of non-ferrous foundries (44 companies, 11% of the production), whereas steel casting is represented by 30 companies (8% of production).
The Federation, with Head Office in Bilbao, represents companies from 13 autonomous communities and the year 1997 saw the start of an extension of the Services that the AFV had been carrying out for more than 35 years for the rest of Spain. The FEAF is recognized by all Administrations as the representative of the Foundry Sector.
It participates as patron of Tecnalia Research & Innovation and together with their foundry division, it develops numerous R+D projects at national and international level, participating in numerous International Working Committee.
