Frauenthal Automotive Toruń Sp. z o.o. was established as Pol-Necks in 1993, with the Polish employees (in whole) and the Swedish capital. In 2000 we were the first to change the way of thinking about U-bolts in Europe and by means a machine invented by us we started their cold-forming. Only after three years we produced the first hot-formed U-bolt, as a natural consequence of extending of our portfolio of products. Moreover, we established metallographic and strength-testing lab.
A mile-stone in operation of our company was the year 2004. This was the time when we implemented the standard ISO/TS 16949:2002. We activated the line for bending, forging and quenching. What else? The production reached 1 000 000 U-bolts. A year later we started coating in Dacromet® technology, and as the only producer of U-bolts in Europe we had it all in a technological process “in one house”, so we did not have to use the subcontractors.
In 2007 the company was reconstructed. We became a part of Frauenthal Automotive. This was the time when we started to manufacture other products than U-bolts, namely bolts and pins. We successively implemented new standards: ISO 14000: 2004, OHSAS 18001: 2007. In 2010 our production reached the level of 2 000 000 U-bolts. We launched a broad-scale investment programme, by way of replacing of the entire machinery stock, and we invested in optimizing of processes and our production capacity.
