Tradition and innovation go hand in hand
Foma is a family-owned company founded on the Orta lake shores, starting its business activities with wood product turning. In the early 1950s wood processing was left aside and the company started dealing with metal machining, especially brass, soon becoming a key supplier for the local faucet manufacturers. In the 1980s Foma developed and grew into an Italian leader in turning processing. In 1998 Foma moved its production facilities to a new company plant in Armeno (NO).
The 1990s featured market differentiation and a significant export growth, whereby Foma started playing a key role in the European machining sector. In 2009 Foma doubled the surface area of its production facilities, reaching over 4,500 sq. mt covered area. In 2013 a new oil & gas heavy duty machining department was set up.
