The Buonafede family has been working in the metal carpentry sector for 4 generations. In more than seventy years of history, the company developed from a small craft entity into a cutting-edge business, active in the railway, naval, nuclear, defence and non-industrial sectors.

  • Our story

    The company was founded by Nestore Buonafede and started as a repair and motor rewinding workshop.

  • Second generation

    In the early 1960s, when his son Filippo joined the company, they started to move into the metal construction sector.

  • Public works

    In the 1970s, the Buonafede company moved into the construction sector and, in the 1980s, was awarded its first public contracts.

  • Third generation

    When Nino and Nestore joined it, the company was among the first ones in the sector to be certified according to the UNI EN ISO 9001 standard.

  • Buonafede Engineering

    Buonafede Engineering was created to answer the need to combine production processes with research and development activities.

  • Fourth generation

    With Filippo joining the company, new investments have been destined for future developments, the so-called Industry 4.0.
