The Foundry was founded in 1961 through the acquisition of a Stern molding plant, regenerated by Savelli and boasts a long and glorious history in the production of cast iron basement boilers sold all over the world.
The foundry was Cavalier Dante Ferroli’s first major investment, which was followed by the opening of factories throughout Europe and the introduction of innovative technologies, thus becoming over the years a benchmark for the entire sector and for multinational competition.
