Firmac once again exhibited at the Big 5 Dubai, Dubai World Trade Centre.

The Firmac team were on hand to advise on duct forming and roll forming technology and consult on factory layout for optimal duct production. 

Visitors were interested to learn about Flameshield® Fireduct, a non-coated fire-rated ductwork system manufactured on Firmac’s CGF1 Pro Duct or CGF1 MDF. This system is made from galvanised sheet metal and is the UK’s first non-coated, fire rated ductwork to achieve LPCB certification for both BS and EN standards. 

Flameshield Fireduct has been installed into some of the UK’s most prestigious buildings including the Shard, the Olymic Stadium, St Bartholomew's Hospital and AWE Aldermaston.


6-10 November 2017

Along with French agents Tyma Diffusion, Firmac exhibited at Batimat, Paris 2017.

Visitors were keen to see the ADF (Automatic Duct Former) and Nu-Loc duct seamer, both featured on the stand. The STR-750 Square to Round Duct Former was of particular interest to visitors who wanted to speed up production of square to round duct fittings.

All Firmac duct forming technology is designed and made by Firmac in the UK.


The ADF is ideal for duct workshops looking to make efficiencies and increase productivity when producing sheet metal ductwork. It automates the duct forming process with ease and efficiency and is available as standard with 2 to 6 uncoiling stations,


The Nu-Loc duct seamer, with mastic sealant is ideal for closing straight ducts, ensuring the closed seam is approved for low, medium and high pressure applications. Compact and time efficient, the Nu-Loc will produce a seam in less than 15 seconds; arguably the fastest seam closer on the market today.


This compact and versatile machine will form a square to round duct fitting in less than two minutes from one piece of metal, with only one join. It's versatility and mobility makes it ideal for on-site work too.

Literature on Firmac products is available in French. Please request information from Tyma Diffusion.


Firmac spent 3 days last week at Scarborough Engineering Week (11-13 October). The event, which is in it’s 7th year, welcomed primary and secondary school children to learn about careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) subjects. Firmac apprentices were on hand to talk about apprenticeships and the role of engineering in a modern company.

Firmac supports Engineering Week as part of an ongoing programme to promote engineering to students in the local area.

The event was hugely popular with aspiring engineers who have the opportunity to see and hear about opportunities in local manufacturing and engineering businesses. Firmac was one of many local organisations including, GCHQ, McCain, Dale Power Solutions and Unison Ltd who support this annual event.


Firmac will be attending the Big 5 International Building and Construction Show in Dubai. 

Learn from the experts about the latest developments in Duct Forming Machine and Flange Technology.

When deciding which duct forming machine to buy - consider these 10 advantages to buying a dedicated machine.

  1. The main reason to buy a dedicated machine is quality of product. This machine has been designed for a specific purpose and therefore the best possible duct will be consistently produced.  This is not a compromise or a bolt-on
  2. No need for compromise. This machine is “fit for purpose” and therefore more reliable and more efficient
  3. Optimum output. It will produce faster, saving time and increasing productivity
  4. Automation will ensure quality production at a much faster rate
  5. Operator friendly. It has been designed for a specific purpose and will be simpler, more intuitive and require less operator intervention
  6. Compact - efficient use of floor space
  7. The production process will be smoother as the material handling will be under control at all times - contrary to modular systems
  8. Full factory testing gives the customer protection - you see what you are getting
  9. Installation time of new machinery will be shorter and production downtime reduced
  10. You have more flexibility for future growth. When you decide to upgrade your machinery you will be choosing the latest and most up-to-date technology and won’t be restricted to old outdated equipment as part of a bolt on upgrade

Firmac is the world leading manufacturer of metal duct forming machinery. All machines are designed and built by duct working experts in the UK.

Following quickly on the heels of the recent “Business of the Year 2015” success at the Chamber Bridlington and Yorkshire Coast Business Awards (CBYCBA) ceremony, Firmac has won the Scarborough News Business Awards 2015 “Export Achievement of the Year”.

Fighting off stiff competition, the Scarborough based firm which designs and manufacturers duct forming machinery for the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) market, impressed the judges with their record of exports to Europe, the Middle East and Russia.

Lewis Firth, Managing Director comments, “We are very pleased to have been presented with this award. Firmac has a strong export record and Firmac machines are working hard for customers across the world. We pride ourselves on producing high quality machinery, which is durable and reliable. In a market where machines from the Far East have been flooding the market, Firmac has held a strong position by innovating and producing machinery, which is faster and more accurate than the Chinese Far East competition. Customers see increased productivity and better return on their investment.”

Firmac is the only ductwork machinery manufacturer that designs and manufactures entirely in the UK.
