We are specialised in the production of protective housing for industrial machines and systems.
We know how to employ art and manual expertise to transform construction steel, stainless steel, aluminium alloys together with expanded materials based on melamine resins or polyurethane foams and pre-bonded lead rubber bearings. Safety glass, transparent polycarbonate panels, thermoformed polymers and composite resins complete the range of materials used to produce technically functional manufacturing solutions with cutting-edge aesthetic appeal.
We merge expertise with over thirty years of experience.
Our professional approach allows us to showcase our ability in the manufacture of complete systems and machines based on customer technology by integrating automation, pneumatics and electronics to the mechanical structure. We jointly design right from the very start of the design stages with the aim of identifying the most appropriate and smartest solutions both from a technical and economic point of view.
We merge expertise and over thirty years of experience into mechanical carpentry and we apply them to solve complex situations. When it’s difficult, we enjoy ourselves!
Our customers are refined, they recognise the cultural value of Italian design and understand that excellence and appreciation of beauty, creativity, cutting-edge technology, craftsmanship and style are the essential ingredients for “dressing” their machinery and making them unique on the market. We know how to offer all this.
Formest was founded in 2002 and is the brainchild of two brothers: Federico and Giampietro Salmaso. Their tenacity and love of their work breathed new life into a corporate project that had been started forty years earlier by the entrepreneurship of their father. With the advent of the third generation, it is now a cutting-edge mechanical machining company, made up of manually skilled people with an ahead-of-the-curve vision which creates, renews, invents and transforms.
We learn from past experience, we imagine future evolutions, but we are always focused on the present and being present. We constantly search for balance and completeness in the awareness that our work must always have a sense.
Formest is made up of men and women who are growing and maturing together. It is a small “community” of professionals who love the world of mechanics.
