Our company.

Company History.

The first idea for using frictional heat to form a hole was developed in France in 1923. Unfortunately, the right raw materials and machinery to produce friction drills did not yet exist. Through technical development and inventiveness, the friction drill was first developed and commercialised by Flowdrill in 1980.

Present-day, our company is the market leader in friction drilling. Our product is used by thousands of customers in more than fifty countries worldwide. We produce our Flowdrill in-house, using our advanced technical knowledge and fully automated machine park to assure the highest quality products.


We offer our customers an innovative, more reliable and cost-efficient connection alternative to traditional fastening methods and ensure that the customer receives the right technical support. We are there for the customer from day one: from the development of an idea to the final production.

ISO qualified.

Our company wants to deliver quality products to ensure satisfied customers. This focus on quality is continuous and has led our company to be ISO 9001 qualified for the design, production and sales of Flowdrills and related products since 2001. The ISO standards are acknowledged worldwide and considered as a quality proof of the products and services delivered by a company. Its principles are focused on continuous process improvement and customer satisfaction.
