In 1999 KAMAX and the French automotive supplier A.Raymond jointly founded the full-service provider FACIL in Genk, Belgium, and started the first operations in the year 2000. The strategic alliance between the two global companies turned out to be a complete success. In 2014 FACIL generated a revenue of 330 million euros and is now operating in nine countries globally: Belgium, China, Germany, France, Mexico, Sweden, Spain, Thailand and in the USA. As full service provider for the automotive car and truck industry FACIL offers both high-strength steel fasteners developed and produced by KAMAX as well as engineered quick fastening systems made of other metals and plastic from A.Raymond. That has proven to be one of the major strengths of the Belgian Joint Venture.
On the occasion of its 15th year of operation FACIL invited representatives from both companies to a joint celebration. On September 1, 2015, in Genk, in a casual atmosphere, René Achten, CEO of FACIL, emphasized the great support received from both parent companies. The entrepreneurial passion of both A.Raymond and KAMAX are the cornerstone of FACIL’s success, the CEO said. Representatives of both mother companies directed their special appreciation to the team of FACIL’s employees. Through the continuous commitment of the employees and the succesful partnership between A.Raymond and KAMAX the success of FACIL will continue to develop in the future.

On the occasion of this anniversary and to thank all employees, KAMAX organized family days throughout the KAMAX world.
During these days all employees celebrated and visited the operations. Many employees used the opportunity to introduce their colleagues and their working environment to their family. A colorful program provided fun entertainment for young and old. In many locations balloon competitions led to joyful pictures on the ground and above the KAMAX premises. The sender whose balloon flies furthest wins a ride on a hot-air balloon.
