Basque Foundry and Forging Cluster

In the beginning of 2016, the Basque Government, following the strategic plan to improve the competitiveness of different important sectors in the Basque Country through cooperation, gave its formal recognition to FUNDIGEX including us in the Basque Cluster Programme.
With this recognition, FUNDIGEX will be the organisation in charge of promoting the exports of the Basque foundry sector through complex cooperation programmes and active stimulation of synergies so as to boost joint export strategies.
