Firmametal operates in the fields of Casting, Hot Forging, Cold Forging, Stamping and Machining of finished products in partnership with the professional firms comprising the intergroup group of companies. Transferring its accumulated knowledge to these firms, Firmametal cooperates on each product, controlling each process step by step and implement necessary know-hows, technologies and propriety processes. By extending its ecosystem to the firms it supplies finished products to, Firmametal is able to adopt a clear, transparent and learning-focused business understanding.
Primarily, Firmametal puts each of its products through an evaluation process. After the design and development requirements of a product have been determined, Firmametal then works out how to best manufacture this item in cooperation with the professional firms comprising its overall ecosystem.
Firma establishes business relationships with its group’s professional firms understanding that they will cooperate in every phase of production, including the supply of unprocessed materials, production techniques, the exchange of know-how, process management, die-mold design, the various production stages, production equipment, shared quality control assurance, work completion, statistical measurement, delivery, inspection and R&D.
Quality and Assurance
The firms included in the Firma ecosystem have all undergone a preliminary qualification and are all supervised. For each new product, a pre-assessment meeting is held with the engineering, business administration, and quality assurance units of the firms involved, under the leadership of a representative of senior management. Progress is followed by detailed analyses, meetings, business plans and engineering reports. The most technical aspects of the work cannot be transferred to any other firm at any time, and Firmametal is included at each step. All production experiences are collected, studied and shared with Firma. Each manufacturer utilizes an open communication model, working as if it was part of Firmametal’s own company. In other words, Firmametal’s production rules and regulations are spread to in each enterprise comprising its ecosystem.
