MUITAS IDEIAS NASCEM DE PEQUENOS ACASOS…
In 1981, AF Azevedos was founded, the company that created the brand Bplan.
AF Azevedos, a company with more than 40 years of experience in the metal-mechanic area, started its activity with the production of moulds, dies and cutters.
Later on, with the growing bet on technologically advanced equipments, AF Azevedos increased its production capacity, extending its activity to the treatment of sheet metal and electromechanical machinery execution.
The leftover material from the production of AF Azevedos, namely the laser cutting process, showed patterns and shapes that aroused the interest of the company’s managers…
The potential and formal richness of that material was noted, whose useful life would be ending there and with which new products could be born, fruit of the creativity and precision that the work of AF Azevedos demands…
…and so Bplan was born.
In 2014, AF Azevedos decided to move premises to Rua dos Perdões, in Vila Nova de Famalicão.
With approximately 5 years of existence, Bplan began to explore and communicate its potential around the world, participating in national and international fairs.
Com cerca de 5 anos de existência, a Bplan começou a explorar e a comunicar as suas potencialidades por todo o mundo, participando em feiras nacionais e internacionais.
In 2021, Bplan, already with over 10 years of experience in the development and production of unique metal solutions, decides to explore once again the potential of metal and invest in a new field of action – the creation of its own design product, ready to integrate a space.
As a result of that creation and already with some presence in marketplaces, Bplan decided to invest in a new touchpoint and create its own e-commerce platform, making all its new creations available online, in a simple and efficient way.
Currently, AF Azevedos has two production units with a total covered area of over 12,000 m2, enabling the offer of a finished solution, through the execution of a wide range of services such as laser cutting, punching, bending, polishing, welding, calendering and thermolacquering.
