B.F.E. S.p.A. has exclusively specialised in the production of forged steel valves since 1953. B.F.E. is a well-respected brand worldwide, known for first class design and quality. In 1996, one of the biggest private Italian firms in the steel mill market, Valbruna, established complete control of B.F.E.
The B.F.E. Quality System is officially certified according to ISO 9001.
The valves are manufactured in two plants: the first realisation of high quality products is reached in the forging plant in Bosisio Parini, where the raw steel, in billets, is requalified and forged with absolute control, characteristic of material and forging procedures. In fact, a great deal of attention is paid to quality, and a fully equipped testing laboratory has been established for the control of material before, during and after the forging operation.
