Fontijne Formitt is proud to announce it has received a major order to produce an automated canning cell equipped with multiple spinners for the performance exhaust market specialist Magnaflow.

The aftermarket performance specialist is a market leader. The automated line will be placed in their manufacturing facility in Oceanside, CA. Magnaflow’s products range from direct-fit converters and cat-back systems to universal mufflers and builder’s kits for fabricating custom exhaust systems.
