The Fondalpress Company was started in 1969 in Castell’Alfero (Asti) on solid roots, thanks to the experience of its founder, Alessandro Doglione, who owned a die-casting, gravity casting and sand casting foundry in Turin since the mid-1950s.
Realising the potential of the automotive sector, Mr Doglione decided to create a Company totally dedicated to pressure die-casting. Production started in Castell’Alfero in 1974.
His perception and the commitment applied were rewarded by the clients: in just a few years Fondalpress became a point of reference in Italy and abroad.
Already in the late 1970s a first enlargement of the building was made and in the 1990s a new machining department was built up to machine their castings.
With the generational change at helm of the company and then the entry into the new millenium, Fondalpress brings about further important changes and the installation of High Pressure Die Casters over 2,000 Tons.
Finally in 2014 the great breakthrough:a new plant nearby the historical seat.
