On January 1st 1988, it was established the Conveying Tubes and Fittings Manufacturers Association (AFTA), as a non-commercial association, by the most important Spanish manufacturers.

The aim of the AFTA was to promote the training and the technical assessment among the fluid conveyance professionals, in order to improve the installations quality, from the project design to the realization.

It was in 1992 when the Association turned into its current name.

“We work for standards” Campaign, in 1991

During the last 25 years, AFTA has investigated the installations calculus and design, has promoted tests in universities and technological centers, has contributed to the Spanish, European and International standards development and has enabled the resolution of technical and regulative enquiries.

Nowadays we are more implicated than ever with our commitment, by encouraging investigation and training of the professionals.

During the current year, as a commemoration, we will offer you the clues that have represented the Association work during these 25 years.
