HISTORY

Frech

FROM PIONEER TO MARKET LEADER OF DIE CASTING TECHNOLOGY

In 1949, Oskar Frech founded a company to produce diecasting and plastic injection molding dies in Schorndorf (Baden-Württemberg). In 1965, mechanical engineer Wolfgang Frech took over responsibility and developed the company into an innovative manufacturer in the field of diecasting machines and die technology. With visionary foresight, creative inventiveness and entrepreneurial drive, he gradually expanded his company into the FRECH Group.
Today, FRECH is a globally operating, family-owned company with a ground-breaking and broadly positioned product portfolio. This comprises the entire spectrum of the foundry, from the diecasting machine to die technology to die spraying/die temperature control systems. Specially developed training and education programs and global, 24-hour FRECH Service ensure that it is used at the highest level of technology and quality.
