In 1944, our founder, Baldiri Cruells i Sellarès opened in the centre of Sabadell a small workshop for the production of cylinders and transmission belts for conveyor systems, specifically for the textile industry. Sabadell was then a benchmark in the textile industry in Catalonia.
The growth of our company runs parallel to the boom in the textile industry during the first half of the XX century.
During the first 40 years, our activity included the tanning of hides, as originally, both cylinders and belts of textile machinery used leather as raw material.
It was not until the early 1960s that FCI Coatings led the technological development in the sector, incorporating rubber in the manufacture of our products. This innovation is key to the expansion of our activities in new industrial sectors such as steel, food, pharmaceutical, and naval industries, etc.
In 2006, FCI Coatings transferred their production activity to a new, modern production plant located in the centre of Sabadell. The design of new premises allowed the incorporation of new technologies and working methods, indispensible for a perfect adaptation to the strict European standards on occupational safety and respect for the environment.
Manufacturing processes of silicone-coated cylinders, polyurethane and other materials appropriate for the needs of a wide variety of industries were incorporated many years ago.
Today, FCI Coatings is a national leader in natural or synthetic rubber cylinder covering of any size and hardness.
