I.N.G FIXATIONS, French creator and manufacturer since 1985

 

Our Story

Who are we ?

Creator and manufacturer of fixings for all trades since 1985.

Born an inventor, François Inglese founded I.N.G. Fixations in 1985 with the aim of commercialising the unique I.N.G. procedure (‘Installation Nouvelle de Gonds’ – new pintle fitting procedure), which enables shutter pintles to be fitted in resin. Before the success of this new fitting method, Inglese decided to produce shutter pintles in-house and thereby position I.N.G. Fixations as a fully-fledged manufacturer..

Always driving a policy of innovation, supported by and thanks to the confidence of his distributors, François Inglese and his team have been committed to listening to craftspeople so as to meet their needs and create more effective products for over 35 years now (see the timeline below). The launch of the FIX-RING in 1997 resulted in the company receiving several awards (‘Trophée de l'innovation Haute-Loire’ – innovation award), Award for Innovation in Technology from Harvard Business School and ‘Trophée INPI de l'innovation’ – INPI Innovation Award etc.)

Today, I.N.G. Fixations is a family business evolving over time with its staff who work hard every day to propose solutions that meet market requirements as closely as possible.
