Located in Oyonnax, in the heart of ”Plastics Valley”, the FPSA Group is specialized in plastics transformation (thermoplastic injection, etc.), but also in pressure foundry (of Zamak).
Drawing on its 35 years of experience, the Group has succeeded in developing its know-how to adapt to the needs of customers in the automotive market and also in general industry markets (sport and leisure, housing, cosmetics), health and well-being, child care, etc.
INJECTOR BUT ALSO ASSEMBLER
"The automotive sector is at the historic heart of FPSA,” explains Olivier Seignemartin, the co-lead manager, “and if we have become ‘injector-assemblers’ over the years, this has been particularly driven by changing demands of major automotive suppliers. We are able to accompany our customers from A to Z, and provide them not only with parts, but also with finished operational sub-units, such as levers, seat adjustment systems, locking mechanisms, airbag devices, etc. for vehicle interiors.”
To achieve this, FPSA has developed an entire know-how with regard to increasing process reliability and traceability, using robotics, implanting sensors (in particular pressure sensors) into injection molds and monitoring by camera to detect any risk of a dysfunctioning tool.
"The addition of the ‘assembler’ activity has been a real cultural change,” emphasizes Olivier Seignemartin. It simplifies organization for our customers, who are direct suppliers to automotive constructors. We can now provide our customers with complete functional solutions, delivered on a just-in-time basis and with a zero-defect guarantee.”

The Oyonnax company FPSA (Fonderie et Plasturgie Seignemartin Associés) has speeded up its development in the medical sector, investing in new dedicated production tools.
In order to improve its know-how in plastics injection, the company has acquired high technology equipment that combines an e-motion range hybrid injection press from the Austrian constructor Engel with a Speed Entry robot, provided by Sepro.
The set-up of this new production line represents an investment between 400 000 and 500 000 Euros, injection tool included. Start-up is planned for this autumn.
The production line insures constant quality and will allow FPSA to be even more responsive and flexible, in particular by shortening delivery times for medical devices to customers all over Europe.
In recent years, FPSA has shown its commitment to the medical field with its acquisition of production tools : a production line that includes an Engel injection press and a Stäubli robot was installed in 2014, with start-up of activity planned for the beginning of 2015.
More recently, the company has incorporated a six-axis robot from the Stäubli constructor onto one of its injection presses. This cell is dedicated to the production of medical devices.
FPSA has an annual turnover of around 20 million Euros, coming mainly from the automotive sector (40%), followed by technical parts (30%) and the medical sector (25%).
The remaining 5% comes from the child care sector.

Bpifrance, the Public Investment Bank, opened its new territorial delegation at the beginning of 2016.
Eric Seignemartin, manager of FPSA, acknowledges the valuable assistance of this institutional partner.
"Bpifrance has been a key player in our credit funding, particularly for the CICE pre-financing that has been available since 2014, but also for “digital” and “robotics” loans, whose postponed reimbursements adapt to the increased burden of an investment scheme. In the future, we can continue to request their partnership in different areas, particularly for international business or external growth.”
