Brief History:

FOMAS (Forgiatura Moderna Acciai Speciali located in Osnago - Lecco- Italy) was founded in 1956 by Professor Gastone Guzzoni. Today the third generation maintains its founder's vision by keeping the Group ahead in Innovation.

Investments in research, modern productive plants, sophisticated monitoring systems and special attention for people and environment are a must. The latest major investment plan started in 2007 and in ended in 2011.

In order to comply with the most demanding customer requests, the “FOMAS 2011” project was launched to significantly increase the Group’s manufacturing capabilities and capacity and it reached 250M€.
The aim was to increase production range and enlarge the spectrum of steel that we can forge.

And we are still forging ahead with more upcoming projects!
