Fugafil is a company located in Raesfeld in Westphalia whose business is the production of specialty monofilament yarns and industrial fabrics.
From simple beginnings as a weaving firm the present company has developed into an enormously-versatile "problem-solver" for the textile branch - and in the following pages we would like to portray the full range of our products as well as our potential for innovation.
The name, F and G Filaments, can be explained as originating from the Cologne energy technology company, Felten and Guilleaume. Founded in Raesfeld in 1956 as the saran® Weaving Mill the young firm initially produced "only" awning materials, car upholstery fabrics and roller blind fabrics. The first mailbags made from synthetic material were produced in the firm, the ties for them being cut from plastic foil and rolled up by hand.
In 1961 the historical development of our company began with the signing of the leasehold agreement for the site "Ostring 22", the planning application and the laying of the foundation stone. At the same time an application to make extensions was made. In the following years continual further development and extension took place, including the construction of several factory buildings and the setting up of a laboratory.
Finally, in 1973/74 the extrusion plant was acquired from the previous supplier and our own thread production was developed. Simultaneously the name FUGAFIL® was established, although the administration and the sales department were still operating in Cologne. Then, on 1st January 1986, came a major development. Both firms were acquired by new shareholders and joined together in the firm FUGAFIL-saran GmbH & Co KG, the administration and the sales department coming to Raesfeld.
In 1999 the purchase of the local authority building department's yard from the town of Raesfeld (an area of approximately 10,000 square meters) started the current phase of development: in the early part of 2000 the ceremonial first spade cut for the new weaving mill (approx. 2,000 square meters) was performed by the mayor, Udo Rößing. And in the following autumn the consolidated and extended departments moved into their new premises.
Today Fugafil is a fully-operational enterprise, possessing ISO certification according to DIN EN ISO 9001-2000 and belonging to the highly-competitive DAUN-Group.
The philosophy is founded on working partnerships in which Fugafil elevates to principles of customers' specific requirements as to fabrics and end products as well as the no-compromise awareness of quality. Partnership and mutual co-operation characterize our definition of communication both externally and internally - after all, we are dealing with human beings whether as customers or as employees. From this it follows almost automatically that, as far as is possible, in our dealings with them we are helpful and accommodating. In other words service to our customers comprises a whole series of factors and it operates at the same high level as our products.
The versatile program of products, the "know-how" and the service we offer are certain to awaken your interest in talking to us or in a visit to Raesfeld. Tell us about your problem! Either we already have a suitable solution to it or we can develop one together with you ...
