Founding and early administration

In 1947, Silvio Brovedani, an enterprising mechanic with extraordinary talents, opens a small machine shop in the Pordenone area.  A great economic boom occurs during those years, and the small company soon calls upon local producers in an area that is establishing itself as one of the most important districts for the Italian metalworking industry, with major firms such as the Zanussi group.  Also, the Maniago area becomes known for its screws for scissors and its pins for the handles of kitchen and pocket knives. silviobrovedani
