Established in 1862 by Alexandre Foin, this family-owned French company has focussed since the beginning in metal wire work, items such as connectors, chains and miscellaneous accessories.
Since it first began, five generations of the FOIN® family have contributed to the development of the Company, first in Paris, then in the Haute-Saône Region, more accurately in Plancher-Bas.
Applying its vast experience in working with metal, specifically wires and rods, the company diversified its production into other products. FOIN®-Spindler developed the industrial closure of jars, followed by the production of metal fabrics intended for the manufacture of protective gloves and aprons – chain mail to you and me.
For over 20 years the FOIN 'linked ring'brand, signifying its tradition of chain mail production, has been seen on metal connectors for sport and industry use.
Its classis oval and offset D screwgate CE marked EN 362 connectors are used wherever robust and reliable connectors are needed. They are seen offshore, in construction and with emergency service users.
The FOIN connector range also includes twistlock and captive bar versions as well as the double action flat hooks typical of pole belts and work positioning lanyards.
Today FOIN is part of one of the world's largest manufacturers of safety equipment, ensuring the standards of engineering excellence set by Alexandre Foin will continue to flourish for many years to come.
