Company

Innovation through tradition since 1956

FOMA has a lengthy experience in the transformation of metals and is specialized in the production of high-tech, die-cast aluminium parts.

It was founded in 1956 by Angelo Montini in Lumezzane (BS) as a mould construction company. Cast aluminium production began in 1962.
The design and construction of the moulds is still carried out In the Lumezzane (BS) plant, which are considered strategic for the realization of the production process. The Pralboino (BS) plant was founded in 1971 and is the current FOMA production site where raw, machined and assembled die-cast aluminium components for the automotive sector are produced. Since 2000, next to the foundry, the mechanical machining department has been created, which allows the production cycle of the aluminium casting to be completed and to follow our customers’ needs.

Today FOMA, with its fleet of machines consisting of 34 presses and over 50 CNCs, is one of the largest European aluminium die casting and processing companies.

Sustainability Report

PEOPLE

The transition from the corporate welfare system to a broader concept of wellbeing involves a more complex perspective with which the company takes care of the collaborator and in particular of their working wellbeing.
It is necessary to anticipate and satisfy the different needs of the company’s workers by supporting their career and professional development, safeguarding their psycho-physical health and building around them a healthy, safe, fair and satisfying work environment, to support better productivity and a reduction of turnover.

WELFARE

Our aim is the structuring of a management model based on processes that guarantee fairness in the recruiting phase, strengthening and growth of Know How through the development of specific career paths, participation in continuous improvement according to the KAIZEN philosophy and integration with the current welfare system, regulated by the reference CCNL (collective labour agreement), with additional and structured solutions that meet the real needs of workers, supplement their wages and involve families and the entire surrounding community.

Since its inception, FOMA has been involved in the development of the area by cooperating with various bodies and institutions, supporting their initiatives and projects.

OCCUPATION

One of the difficulties that emerges in an increasingly evolving world of work is that of aligning the new professional needs of companies with the school curricula at the end of the study programmes. Our company intends to help reduce this gap by promoting the exchange of knowledge with technical and professional institutes and universities, structuring specific collaboration and know-how enhancement projects with them.

We expect benefits for everyone: greater employment opportunities for the young people of the area and recruitment possibilities more in line with the needs of the company.

Sustainability is an essential aspect of the cultural and economic future of companies. It is both a perspective and an attitude towards one’s work that concerns everyone.
