2014 was a year of change. In response to the needs of our customers and with their comfort in mind, a new 600 m² warehouse was opened in July. The new warehouse is located at Figel’s headquarters on Jesienna 23 Street.
In the same year, the section of the site was moved to Figel’s main building. Previously it was located at the production hall several dozen meters away. This was to improve cooperation between the service and the sales department.
The production of semiautomatic machines with separate feeders has started. To this day they are popular with our customers.

The violent and uncontrolled development of the economy in the early 1990s forced the owner of the company, Richard Figel, to expand the company’s business, in addition to manufacturing equipment, the company began to provide services to solve all customer problems related to welding. Production facilities were converted into offices and stores, while the entire production was transferred to a new production hall. The company has signed contracts for the distribution of welding equipment and materials to foreign and domestic manufacturers, resulting in the creation of a sales department employing specialist engineers. In 1993 and 1994 two field offices were opened in Warsaw and Gliwice.
The increase in the demand for this type of equipment caused that in 1984 the owner Ryszard Figel moved the company to a new headquarters in Gdańsk to Jesienna Street.
Following the needs of our customers, production of semi-automatic welding machines has been extended.
The construction of the first semiautomatic was established in the 80s, while the production of the PS 200 semi-automatic welding began in 1990.
