PRECIFAST Monistrol is part of the major players of the cold forming business in France.


PreciFast offers a large range of technical fasteners and cold formed steel products.


With 50 years of existence, we have acquired a know-how in the manufacturing of any type of screw in steel, and are able to fulfill - and exceed - the most demanding customer requirements.


Precifast  works with and directly supplies key French and European OEMs such as Renault, PSA, Ford and Volvo but we also work with Tier One suppliers, including TRW, Faurecia, Johnson Controls, Magna and more.


With our own in-house heat treatment line, our production process is highly controlled and is a key factor in delivering via an excellent JIT service.


We consistently achieve customer satisfaction through our reactivity and flexibility.




Our history


Beginning of 20th Century : Creation of MARTOURET facility in Monistrol-sur-Loire.


1968: Martouret becomes GFD (Générale de Forgeage et Décolletage),  the 1st manufacturer of standard and automotive threaded fasteners.


1973:  Creation of a new factory in Monistrol-sur-Loire, dedicated to the threaded fasteners manufacturing activity.


1977: GFD becomes GFI then Former in 1992.


2000: GFI becomes LISI Automotive.


2007: LISI Automotive sells the PRECITURN manufacturing plant.


2013: PRECITURN becomes PRECIFAST, focusing on cold-formed parts and fasteners.

PreciFast Monistrol specializes in the threaded fasteners manufacturing activity by the cold forming process, mainly dedicated to the automotive industry.


The plant, located in Monistrol sur Loire, close to Saint-Etienne (France), is organized into 3 main sections:


• Cold Forming Workshop with Boltmakers

• Heat Treatment Workshop

• Optical Sorting and Packaging Workshop


Thanks to efficient machinery, the plant is able to produce more than 2 million screws everyday.


The heat treatment line absorbs 750 kg of screws per hour.


Depending on the sectors and client demands, our plant produces in

3 shifts of 8 hours, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.





Our know-how


Your expert for cold forming parts! Cold forming is the technical term for plastic deformation of steel and non-ferrous metal. Based on rolled or drawn wire product being cold formed in several process steps on multi-stage presses.



Compared to other processes cold forming provides several advantages, such as saving of material, a very high process velocity and a homogeneous grain structure, improving the mechanical properties of the part. Depending on the degree of deformation hardness, elasticity, yield and tensile strength of the part is considerably improved. Precise pressing tools ensure dimensional accuracy and part’s surface free of grooves.
