About Us


Designer and manufacturer of access control products since 1989, FDI MATELEC controls all its projects from conception to production.

Key player in residential and industrial access control applications, thanks to the use of up-to-date technology and highly skilled people, FDI MATELEC offers a range of products adapted to each project, from dedicated solutions to small single-site installations as well as large multi-site networks.

The company is a subsidiary of Urmet France since 2000 (Urmet group Italy). FDI MATELEC is part of the group of professionnals at the initiative of Vigik label and its products are approved. Its entry panels are DDA compliant as well. From its site of 2500 sqm based in Vendée (West part of France), FDI MATELEC has been exporting its products worldwide since 2004.

FDI R&D and Qualification Department

To be at the cutting edge of innovation, FDI MATELEC invests each year in its R&D and technical department. The result is a team of 35 technicians and engineers divided into 3 skills areas :

  • the hardware department developping the electronic boards,
  • the embedded software department that creates the management applications of the electronic boards,
  • the PC department developping softwares that will be the interface between the user and the hardware. 

Each department ensures a technological watch and, on each project, a significant portion is dedicated to research and innovation.  All developments include a comprehensive study to reduce the product’s impact on the environment throughout its life cycle. The products are designed to facilitate and simplify the ergonomic use by clients (installer, user ...).

Finally, to ensure the best performance, a team of 6 technicians, separate from theR&D, is dedicated to the validation of new products or main changes. Each element must successfully  pass the functional test plans to validate its full operation and reliability for commercialization (controller, software ...).
