“Fermer is honored to have been selected by a world-leader like JL French to help them successfully launch this critically important program,” said Cushman.

JL French, an industry leader in the development and production of die cast aluminum components and assemblies, has advanced manufacturing facilities located in North America, Europe and Asia employing over 100 high pressure die cast machines, 200 machining centers and 2,000 employees.
