For the third time since its creation in 2018, the Fédération Forge Fonderie is partnering Castforge to bring together around thirty French forges and foundries in a "Forge and Foundry Village", which will be exhibiting in Stuttgart from 4 to 6 June 2024.
In Baden-Württemberg, a region with a long tradition of industrial subcontracting, our European neighbours and friends will also be present, along with CAEF, now EFF (European Foundry Federation), and EUROFORGE.
We look forward to seeing you in Stuttgart in June.
