Forster Profile Systems in steel and stainless steel
Our hearts beat for steel; steel is our passion because it combines elegance and strength, durability and timelessness like hardly any other material.
We hold steel in our hands every day. We are experts when it comes to steel; we are familiar with its advantages and enthusiastic about the possibilities that building with steel opens up today and in the future.
The demands on buildings have not diminished: technical and social developments that have brought us digitisation, drive urbanisation and demographic changes, alter our working behaviour and continue to shape the awareness of an ecological way of life as well as health and safety aspects. They all influence the design of our spatial environment, which must be implemented in a simultaneously functional and visually appealing architecture.
This is exactly where Forster comes in. For us, building with steel means building for life: building in the service of the diverse needs of people and future generations as well as building with respect for the environment and natural resources.
Produced in Switzerland, sold worldwide: The headquarters of the Forster Group, including development and production, are located in Arbon/Switzerland – a clear commitment to Switzerland as a business location. In Arbon, around 3 000 kilometres of Forster steel profiles are produced annually, checked for quality and shipped from here to numerous countries. Sales are carried out through our own subsidiaries in Germany, Austria, England, France and Portugal, branch offices in the Middle East and the USA, as well as a global network of sales partners. This enables us to guarantee proximity to our customers and competently support them on site.
Forster knows the advantages of steel as a material for the construction industry and offers an energy-efficient, high-performance and durable product portfolio for indoor and outdoor applications in buildings of all kinds: From public buildings where long-term functionality and safety are paramount, to modern residential and office buildings that require transparency and energy efficiency, to historic buildings that need to be renovated as faithfully as possible with a narrow view – Forster offers the right solutions with supplementary services.
