Since the 1990s, FIMOR Le Mans has grown to more than 50 employees at its Headquarters. With a significant portion of its manufactured products sold abroad (more than 85% all goods manufactured at the corporate headquarters in Le Mans are distributed outside of France), FIMOR’s development has been stimulated through its international subsidiaries.
FIMOR NORTH AMERICA
FIMOR‘s first subsidiary acquisition was made in the United States in 2001, providing a hub for the growing commercial presence in North America. This 5 person company, through an extensive distributor network, re-sells polyurethane products manufactured in the Le Mans facility (squeegees, sheets….) along with squeegee maintenance equipment and accessories that are manufactured by them in USA. In 2018, FIMOR group acquires the company HARKNESS INDUSTRIES, specialist in polyurethane parts, located in Cheshire (Connecticut). These two companies in the United States merge under the single entity FIMOR NORTH AMERICA in Cheshire.
FIMOR‘s China office opened in 2002 and supports both the sales of FIMOR and its local purchases (casted silicone keyboards).
In 2009, FIMOR acquired Bicel-Technoworld, a small electronic components trading company. In 2014 the company IHM FRANCE, created after the separation of the Annecy Électronique company keyboards subcontracting activities, joined the FIMOR group as a FIMOR « sister company », to complete the group’s industrial keyboards range with its experience in circuits, soft keyboards and other Man-Machine Interfaces. IHM FRANCE® targets as diverse markets as aeronautics, defense, medical field, security and intelligent home management system, yachting related activities, balneotherapy, automobile, on-board equipment, etc. In 2017 all the electronic activity of the group became a full-fledged company: FIMOR ELECTRONICS, and IHM FRANCE® is now a commercial trademark of FIMOR ELECTRONICS.
Today, FIMOR is dedicated to two principal activities :
- Polyurethane processing (moulding), primarily to manufacture of sheets, scrapers and industrial parts.
- The trading of technical components (import/export) for electronics.
These two activities have been split into 3 separate business divisions, each to cover a specific market:
FIMOR Serigraphy for the manufacturing and marketing of squeegees for screen printing. These polyurethane squeegees are manufactured on-site at Le Mans and are sold worldwide under the brand name serilor® via a network of over 260 distributors.
FIMOR Polyurethane for the manufacturing and marketing of a variety of products and technical parts in polyurethane for markets other than screen printing. This includes parts for cleaning machines, or railway maintenance and infrastructure…
