Our history

"Fonderia di Salerno" is a modern company, equipped with highly qualified facilities. It’s a leading supplier of castings of gray lamellar cast iron and ductile cast iron for several key industries including the machine tools manufacturers.

The foundry was put up by a German and Swiss Group in 1836. It was established in an industrial area, which also included an engineering workshop and a textile industry.
During the First World War (1915-1918) the German Group gave up its shares to the Swiss Group which kept on producing castings.
As in 1935 the machine shop closed down, the Swiss group decided to give up the foundry to the Italian Group.
The foundry took over the corporate name of Fonderie di Salerno S.p.a, licensee of Mechanite Cast Iron.

The company kept on growing, re-investing in equipments and improving the production of high quality castings, which are now proudly supplied across Italy and exported to Europe.
