History of the "Division F2A", belonging to the 2A group
2A was born in 1974 as a small zamak die-casting foundry integrated in the zippers production department of the mother company: roughly ten years later, the company started to sell its own casting technology to the national automotive industry and to Telecom and computer application. In order to follow the growing Customers demand, whom where asking for bigger parts made by aluminium alloys, in 1989 2A bought 4 different foundries and consolidated them.
Today, 2A is the first aluminium die-casting foundry in its region and owns the biggest existing die-casting press worldwide and starts to have a global presence.
