The idea of bringing together small but productive businesses capable of operating on the market as a valid alternative to large-scale industries came into being in the 1990s with the formation of the CSF Inox Group. The group’s strength lies in having the flexibility of a small business with the catalogue of a leading player. Over the last 20 years, the CSF Group has acquired BARDIANI in Fornovo Taro, a promising company which manufactures sanitary valves, OMAC in Reggio Emilia, whose range of lobe volumetric pumps makes it the only Italian manufacturer of its kind, and most recently, MBS in Parma, a company specialized in corrugated tube heat exchangers. Today the group has more than 300 employees with a turnover of over € 60 million.
The companies in the CSF Inox Group proudly serve an extremely demanding and highly selective customer base operating in industrial sectors characterized by state-of-the-art and evolving technologies. The CSF Inox Group presents itself to the market with two important strengths: quality products and maximum operational flexibility. The latter point, difficult to achieve for large multinationals for obvious organizational and bureaucratic reasons, is what really sets us apart. This involves endless research into innovation both in terms of products and technologies as well as internal processes and services offered. Competitiveness, industrial policy, innovation and growth of human resources are all parts of a single business model to which our Group adheres.
