Our History

Founded in 1972 by brothers Mario and Ernesto (Andy) Franco, the Fero Group has always taken an integrated approach to business to deliver the services they know their customers are looking for.

From the beginning, Mario and Andy had a keen business sense and took a very "hands-on" approach to all aspects of their structural steel fabrication business and were quick to expand their business to include a precision engineering workshop and then a protective coating services arm.

Today they are joined by Mario’s sons, Michael and Robert, an Independent Advisory Chair, Denis O’Neill, and a committed team of professionals. The executive team continues to build on the family business and is forging a formidable reputation as a leading national and international supplier of ground-support products, steel-reinforcing products and anti-corrosion services.
