HISTORY

A HEART THAT BEATS IN EMILIA
AND A LOOK AT THE WORLD

Microfound was born in 1992 from Gianni Bigliardi’s passion for metals and precision lost-wax casting.

Bigliardi had learned to know and appreciate micro-casting technology from having been one of the major suppliers on the market for more than twenty years, with its business of deburring and finishing steel castings.

Microfound’s history is one of continuous growth and evolution, capacity for innovation, production flexibility and strong market orientation.

The constant evolution of both service and technological solutions has been a counterpoint to the progressive structural growth of the company and its operational surface area. After several expansions and the incorporation of the company Bigliardi Gianni S.r.l., today Microfound reaches the size of 10,000 sq. m., divided into two plants, in which 65 employees work.

Microfound’s Quality System has been certified by the TÜV ITALIA certification body since 2002 and updated to the UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 standard.
