Our history

Little is known of the Camuno district of forging, yet it has a long history and an illustrious tradition, a know-how with deep-rooted origins in the “iron and firing” culture whose DNA has been used to develop mainy important enterprises over the last few decades.

Among these there is Forge Monchieri, the company run by the Chairman Cavaliere Gianfranco Monchieri and his daughter Gaia Monchieri (CEO).

It is one of the most famous Italian enterprises in the forging sector; it has been operating for over forty years and is continuously expanding.

It all started in a small workshop in Pisogne, where over 40 years ago Cavaliere Monchieri founded the company after 10 years experience in the industry.

The entrepreneurship that has always distinguished the Monchieri family, its managerial staff, supervisors and qualified collaborators, has led the company to achieve excellent results at both a domestic and international level.

The company was founded in 1970 by Gianfranco Monchieri and expanded considerably in just a few years.

Numerous investments were carried out immediately in technologies and equipment; the 5,000 ton press came into full production in 1990 and in 1992 the company gained ISO 9002 certification; this was followed by further certification: ISO 14001, ISO 9001: 2000, ASME III, HAF604 and RCCM.

In the mid nineties, the industrial space was extended reaching a total of 20,000 square metres; a few years later, in 2001, a new area was purchased to build another factory plant near the historical manufacturing centre where the 12,000 ton press was installed in 2009. The expansion works never finish and work is currently under way to build a third plant.

Evolving with constant technological innovation means the company boasts top quality equipment and a highly competitive set-up.

Today Forge Monchieri is a competent, trustworthy, highly reliable and competitive enterprise in a variety of sectors, such as: Power Generation, Nuclear, Oil&Gas, Mechanical and Heavy Industry, Boiler works and Pressure Vessel and Shipbuilding industries.
