In 1932, Domenico Farina founded the “Costruzioni Meccaniche Farina”. It was a workshop for the production of dies for cutting metal sheets.

The first Farina press was born out of the need of in-house testing the new products of the company.

Initially, the presses were used only for metal sheet cutting

In the 1970s, Farina Presses shifted its focus to the production of metal hot forging presses. It also integrated the press range with accessories and devices necessary for the hot forging process completion and automation

Today, Farina Presse designs and builds customised presses and complete hot forging lines. Moreover, Farina Presse retrofits and updates existing presses.

Farina Presse today – 90 years

Farina Presse has turned 90. The company was born in the 1930s as a mechanical workshop that produced metal sheet cutting machines.

The company expanded quickly and eventually built a press to test the product dies in-house.

This decision turned out to be fundamental for the subsequent production choices made by Farina Presse. Indeed, they began the production of presses for metal sheet cutting and forging.

Press production further expanded Farina Presse’s business. For this reason, in 1966, it moved to its current location, in Suello.

In the 1970s, the production focused on more powerful and precise hot forging presses thanks to the development of technology.

From this moment on, Farina Presse specialised in the production of complete lines for hot forging presses.

In 2009, the company opened the new assembly area that can hold large presses.

In 2018, the company was bought by SCHULER, a large German company specialised in cold forging.
