FKT pipes under test
We are constantly evolving. In addition to the further development of existing products, FKT also focuses on the development of new products. For example, the product lines of MST and MAR pipes, special pipes suitable for use in shipbuilding, have been developed and established in recent years.
It goes without saying that our pipes are subject to repeated certification processes, which also make fire resistance tests a prerequisite. In August 2017, for example, our marine pipes in various nominal sizes were subjected to this test. The result: The tested pipes completely fulfilled the given criteria!
FKT Faßbender GmbH is represented at trade fairs again this year. In March, we will be represented for the third time in the USA with our products for shipbuilding at Seatrade Cruise Global. In addition, you will find us for the first time with our own exhibition booth at SMM Hamburg, the renowned international trade fair for maritime industry, in September. The trade fair season will open for us in February. On February 06th and 07th we present our products to the conference audience at the GFK Unlimited in Munich.
