The foundry: HISTORICAL roots and technological future

At the forefront of copper alloy casting

Valfond was founded in 1993 but has its roots in the experience gained since the 1930s as the in-house foundry of the Valvomec company.

Located in Valsesia, it has a covered area of 2,000 square metres where bronze casting equipment and machineries are installed.

A team of experts interfaces with Customers in order to find the most suitable solutions for even the most particular and critical requirements. Strict procedures in design, prototyping and inspection guarantee high quality castings and total reliability.
Our aim is to provide successful answers to questions from a wide variety of sectors. Customer care is indeed a priority: continuous discussion, research, planning and creation of a product that meets every expectation.

We promote the principle of Sustainable Development

Valfond is located in a mountain area, which has an ecosystem that is sensitive to the slightest variations and modifications, especially if introduced by man.

Aware of the critical issues that may arise from its type of production activities, Valfond is committed to protecting the Environment, starting above all from legislative compliance with mandatory standards, an essential requirement for proper business management.
