HERITAGE

FHP – Frezite High Performance Lda., was founded in March 2007, by a joint-venture with HPS GmbH and INEGI – Instituto de Engenharia Mecânica e Gestão Industrial, in Porto and, known until January 2019 as HPS – High Performance Structures Gestão e Engenharia Lda. In May 2018, the main shares of the company have been bought by FREZITE Group and, since then, FHP becomes a business unit of FREZITE Group.

The main goal of FHP is technology and flight hardware development for high end products across its business areas, namely:
Thermal Hardware: Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI) blankets for commercial and scientific spacecrafts and instruments and cryogenic applications (industrial, scientific and automotive); from design, manufacturing to integration phases
Mechanical Hardware: Mechanical Ground Support Equipment (MGSE), ranging from transport containers, lifting and turning devices, integration stands, test adapters, trolleys and mock-ups; from design (CAD, structural and thermal analysis), manufacturing to integration phases
Lightweight Mechanical Components: composite and metallic components for spacecrafts, satellites and instruments subsystems, for instance CFRP/GFRP struts; from design, manufacturing to integration phases
Deployable Structures: long deployable masts and for large deployable reflectors structures; from design, manufacturing to integration phases
Research, Development and Innovation: new materials development (ablators, ceramics…)
