- About F&L Industrial Solutions, Inc.
Founders Mike Fanolla and Lori LeFeuvre
F&L Industrial Solutions, Inc. was founded by Mike Fanolla and Lori LeFeuvre in 2002 to meet the demand of the growing aluminum extrusion market in the San Diego area. Mike brought years of extensive extrusion design knowledge and Lori brought clear business discipline in the area of operations and finance. Together, they formed close partnerships with the companies they served in the diverse southern California markets such as computers, bio-tech, military, aerospace, pharmaceutical, golf, printing, vision /sensor, cinematography, food, beer-making, rocketry, underwater diving, tourism, tradeshow, University mechanical engineering, and retail design. Many of these companies had in-house manufacturing lines that required extensive automation framing and mounting, as well as safety enclosures and shields. And often they needed specialized carts, workstations and material handling for their niche products. Both Mike and Lori noticed that many customers had specific needs and requirements that were not being met by traditional aluminum extrusion solutions sold by traditional resellers. They required a higher level of collaborative involvement with a local company to design and build specific solutions that would give companies exactly what they needed, when they needed it, at a price they could afford. So over time, Mike and Lori began investing in full-time in-house CAD designers, machine shop equipment and operators, high-speed digital routing and experienced aluminum extrusion assemblers and installers. Today, F&L is a full service aluminum extrusion company serving California, Nevada, Arizona and Hawaii and beyond.
