Firmac Ltd. was formed in 1985 as a sister company to Firth Sheet Metal Ltd. who had previously been Duct Manufacturers for twenty years. At that time general dissatisfaction throughout the industry due to a lack of automation led Firmac’s founder, Colin Firth, to design their first machine, the Nuloc Duct seaming machine closely followed by the ADF (Auto Duct Former).
