A little bit about UFS
In almost 70 years of operation in the threading tools sector, UFS has succeeded in adapting its resources to the market’s needs, with technical, productive and organisational transformations that have brought it into competition with the biggest companies in the world. UFS has never fallen behind with regard to new products, new technologies or additional services, a lack of which would have prevented it from being competitive on the domestic and international markets.
Production expansions, new research departments, quality certifications and the use of state-of-the-art computerised systems for design and for the planning of orders, have been on-going, natural evolutions. The introduction of modern software products, custom-made to suit the company’s needs, has allowed perfect coordination in terms of operational and financial management. Production is assisted from the date we receive the order until delivery to the customer, thanks to efficient planning of activities and checks on progress. Throughout the whole cycle of development, until delivery, optimising flows and allowing the creation of executive spaces to introduce new types of specific tools, satisfying the processing of hard to handle state-of-the-art materials in the highest band. For all threading requirements, UFS is able to offer the right answer with a standard product from its catalogue or by designing a product “tailor-made” for the Customer.
