The Public Economic Company FONDAL SPA is a Subsidiary of the Group of Metallurgical and Steel Industries by abbreviation IMETAL, with a share capital of 2141 000 000.00 DA, located in Algiers, whose main sector of activity is the production and marketing of foundry products namely castings of cast iron, steel and non-ferrous metals.
Resulting from a transformation of status in 2016 following the absorption of the Groupe Industriel Fondal and the merger of the joint-stock companies EPE ALFEL and EPE ALFON, called Production Units. It has more than 400 employees, all at the service of preserving the know-how acquired over 100 years.
The restructuring of the company is based on a centralization of all the departments that include FONDAL, located at the level of the Head Office located in the industrial zone of El-Harrach, overseeing the following Production Units:
LEADER in its field of Subcontracting Foundry, it is distinguished by a wide range exceeding 70 products, responding to different sectors of economic activity with a vocation, industrial, construction, steel, railway, agricultural, hydraulic, mechanical, urban and embellishment, with a production capacity of 9000 T/year cast iron, 900 T/year steel and 30,000 H/year machining and boilermaking.
The strategy adopted by the managers of EPE FONDAL SPA is based on a gradual evolution, based on the restructuring and redeployment of its main functions both industrially, commercially and financially as well as in terms of organization and human resources. . That is to say, a strategy centered mainly on the redeployment of internal resources and incidentally on fresh external resources through the new investment program and the support measures granted by the IMETAL Group Supervisory Authority.
Consequently, FONDAL’s strategic choices will revolve around the qualitative and quantitative orientations necessary to acquire new National and International market shares.
The Oran-ALFON Foundry Unit is an industrial unit whose main activity is based on the manufacture and marketing of castings in cast iron, steel and non-ferrous metals, by combining mechanical machining and industrial boilermaking.
Coming from the former name “Unité Fonderie d’Oran UFO” created by C. DUCROS & BRUSTLEIN in 1921, under the name “Ateliers et Fonderie CELESTIN DUCROS AFCD”, it made its debut in the manufacture of small unit forged parts, and over the years, this establishment grew to lead to the manufacture of armament parts and tractors by the casting process from 1926 to 1940.
The company “C. DUCROS” was endowed with competent personnel and structures that lent themselves to further develop the activities of foundry, machining and boilermaking.
Before independence, the company signed a contract to make “BERLIET” pieces and after independence it continued to work under the acronym of the new company of AFCD until its nationalization in November 1974 under the aegis of the company ex-SONACOME.
The latter further developed the capacities of the unit by carrying out a double operation, one in investment and the second in valorization of the foundry workshops, the machining and boilermaking workshop.
After the industrial restructuring of the companies in 1983, the unit was placed under the aegis of the National Foundry Company (ENF SPA), resulting from “SONACOME” and “SN-METAL”, where it maintained the same activities and developed a new one, namely: a mini-activity in aluminum and bronze casting.
The El Harrach-ALFEL Foundry Unit is an industrial unit whose main activity is based on the manufacture and marketing of parts
cast iron and non-ferrous metals.
Created in 1950, under the name of “Union Industrielle Africaine UIA”, then nationalized in 1974 under the name “Unité Fonderie d’El Harrach UFE”.
In 1983, UFE was transferred to the National Foundry Company ENF following the industrial restructuring of public companies.
In 2001, it became an ALFEL Subsidiary with the status of Joint Stock Company with a share capital of 870,000,000 DA following an organic reorganization of the ENF into the Industrial Group FONDAL SPA, itself part of the SGP TRANSOLB.
Since 2016, the El Harrach-ALFEL Foundry has been placed under the supervision of E.P.E FONDAL S.P.A following a merger absorption. ALFEL has proven itself for more than 70 years in the field of sanitation and roads, also, has developed its know-how in the field of studies and design of tools, manufacture of various parts, such as the range of its products, declined by market sectors, styling products differentiated according to the model manufactured
The Algerian of Foundries is an economic public subcontracting company whose wide range of products meets the needs of several customers belonging to different important market sectors, such as the cement sector, mechanics, agriculture or the steel industry.
The structural change made to the FONDAL company following the decision of the public authorities to transfer its foundry unit from Tiaret to a new mechanical platform; imposes a redeployment and a new strategy based essentially on the relaunch of the project to build a new cast iron and steel foundry in the locality of Oran. This project will allow the company to maintain its position as a leader in the heart of the foundry business, which remains the major strategic objective of EPE FONDAL.
In addition, the revival of the national economy following the outcome of the health crisis linked to COVID-19 calls for greater economic agility and innovation for better support for national and private companies, whose activity is in contact with the foundry business, in order to allow them to return to their normal level of activity, and to enable FONDAL to develop.
FONDAL’s policy, through its two foundry units in Oran and El Harrach, based on the principles of differentiation, availability in customer assistance and product monitoring at the operating level, which remains an important asset.
During this year, EPE FONDAL began a process of seeking private and/or public industrial partners with the aim of concluding partnerships capable of attracting capital and know-how in the cross-functional functions of the profession, in l occurrence, research and development, investment and sales.
