ABOUT FILLON TECHNOLOGIES
Founded in the 1950s by Mr. Roger Fillon, the Fillon company began as a manufacturer of toys for children and strollers. Eager for new challenges, the company successfully responded to the request of a paint manufacturer by developing the first paint mixing machine in Europe for the automotive bodyshop repair industry. The Fillon Pichon company continued its rise, at the cutting edge of technology, and produced ATEX explosion-proof motors integrated into the mixing machines.
Then the eldest son, Mr. Daniel Fillon, took over the reins of the company and gave it new impetus by making it global. Under the leadership of its current President, Mr. Sébastien Reinbold, the Fillon Technologies group is now generating 95% of its turnover in export sales. As a trusted partner and reference in the world of automotive repair, it guarantees local service through its worldwide organization, thanks to its 240 employees spread throughout the world, across its 6 subsidiaries and 3 production sites.
The Fillon Technologies Group has also developed a complete range of equipments dedicated to the bodyshop painter, such as spray gun washers and aerosol fillers, thus guaranteeing quality work. Through its history, it has demonstrated that innovation is an integral part of its global development approach. Its teams anticipate customer needs and are constantly alert to changes and developments in the market. In this spirit, Fillon Technologies is launching the first 100% automatic dosing system, the Daisy Wheel, as a precursor on the market. The Daisy Wheel is an easy-to-use and environment friendly system that preserves, protects and doses a paint line in complete autonomy.
FILLON TECHNOLOGIES is not only the world leader in the “Refinish” market, but it is also a “Game Changer” for its market and others to come!!
FILLON TECHNOLOGIES has been active for more than 60 years in the paint preparation business. Alongside this, the company has also developed a range of complimentary equipment dedicated to car body shops. Paint gun cleaners and aerosol fillers together guarantee a new level of quality for the car body shop professional.
Paint preparation and storage
Paint preparation and storage is the driving force of FILLON TECHNOLOGIES’ knowhow.
We provide specialist answers to each type of paint (solvent or water-based), whether it needs to be mixed or not.
The move towards waterborne paints has led FILLON TECHNOLOGIES to provide additional paint storage solutions with or without a heated cabinet.
Paint gun cleaners
Paint guns have to be cleaned between each coat of paint applied.
FILLON TECHNOLOGIES’ paint gun cleaners combine ease of use with meeting the environmental requirements.
FILLON TECHNOLOGIES’ aerosol fillers allow the filling of an aerosol of any shade.
With our revolutionary new concept FILL ONE, you can fill one shade after another without cleaning the machine in-between.
For FILLON TECHNOLOGIES, “sustainable development” has several meanings. It defines our approach to making decisions, as well as the management of our impact on the environment and our relationship with our customers, employees, suppliers and shareholders. But above all, we are fully convinced that a sustainable business ensures its long term growth. As an international player, we are aware of the fact that our impact reaches further than the walls of our premises.
“Sustainable development” has been part of our business culture for years. Our teams, think, create and industrialise tomorrow’s equipment taking great care over the design specifications for our new products. We are fully aware that our product manufacture methods have a direct impact on the environment. We also understand the importance of considering products in terms of their “life cycle” to reduce the business’s impact and its products’ impact on the planet. This is why we use an eco-design approach and make it our duty to permanently examine all aspects of our products (design, manufacture, use and recycling) to make sure that we have taken all possible measures to reduce our carbon footprint to a minimum.
This approach implies a global vision, to reduce the need for raw material energy (by working on new materials for example), energy consumption, packaging and waste.
Our latest applications cover:
– The shaft on our lids. We have replaced the stainless steel shaft by a composite shaft which has an increased service life, high resistance, etc.
– The JET CLEAN, a paint gun cleaner that reduces solvent consumption and combines both innovation and savings. It won the EQUIP AUTO 2009 Jury award.
– The FILL ONE, a clean aerosol filling system that respects the environment and the user’s health. Thanks to this equipment, the user does not need to use solvents or toxic cleaning products.
– And finally, the DAISY WHEEL (winner of the EQUIP AUTO Innovation prize and the 2013 Innovation prize for the Centre region of France) an automatic paint doser combining innovation, savings and ecology. This automatic machine can dose paint with extreme accuracy, making it possible to limit paint waste, but above all allowing the user to work in a healthy environment (no more direct contact with paint).
By design, our equipment also helps our customers to meet their own sustainable development objectives. They are not only designed to make everyday use by the refinisher easier, but also to implement processes to limit the use of resources and the waste of materials. We regularly exchange information with test refinishers to identify their needs (creation of new products) and to improve our existing products to better meet their needs.
