Based in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region, FONTREY has been specialising in the production of your cast iron parts from prototype to medium series since 1960. Its monthly production is about 200 tons.

The presence of our various departments on the same site enables us to support our customers from the development to the finishing of their products.

Our integrated design office enables us to help you design your projects and advise you.

Our foundry produces your parts by proposing the creation of your tooling, core-making, melting, moulding and finishing.

And finally, our workshop is involved in finishing operations such as machining, assembly, packaging and logistics.
Thanks to our experience and know-how, we can produce parts ranging from a few grams to 25 kg.
