Fondinox S.p.A. is a completely privately owned Company that has been managed and in the same ownership since it was formed in 1966. Initially the Company specialized in the production of forging ingots in austenitic and ferritic stainless steels.
Through the installation in 1972 of the first two medium frequency induction furnaces, Fondinox decided to specialize in foundry activity, and production of cast nickel base alloys was initiated. In the early Eighties, the Company began to supply cast valves for offshore and oil & gas markets, and has been one of the first European foundries to reach relative qualifications. Metallurgy has been widened on duplex, superduplex and superaustenitic range of alloys, also through exclusive production licence agreements with the Swedish Companies Avesta Jernverk AB and Sandvik Steels AB. Sand castings production has been coupled with the production of centrifugal castings, with extension of reference markets.
