To represent this important sector it was founded in April 25th 1969 , by a small group of entrepreneurs, the Brazilian Foundry Association – ABIFA, inside the Tupy Foundry offices, in Sao Paulo. The first administration was elected in January 30th 1970 ; its president was Mr. Milton Ayres, of Progresso Metalfrit Foundry.
The commitment that in the beginning was only related with the foundry companies' technological development was empowered with a national performance, emphasizing political and economical subjects, aiming the protection and commercial development of the sector.
At the present time ABIFA counts with associates in the entire country and has an active and effective actuation in all the subjects that are of interest of its sector.
