The history of pero-press

PERO-PRESS was founded in May 1985 by Edmondo Piffaretti, together with other partners and started with 8 skilled workers with a solid experience in hot pressing of scissors since the 1960s.

Originally located at Roncaglia 16 in Novazzano, the company began producing components in hot pressing in brass and other non-ferrous alloys in July 1985.

With the arrival of the first die-sinking machine in 1986, the mechanical workshop was opened. The company was then able to start building all the pressing and stamping tools required for production and the corresponding equipment.

In 1991, Simona Piffaretti joined the company and, together with her father, took care of all the administrative aspects of the business.

As production volumes increased, the available space was no longer sufficient to meet customer requirements. At that time PERO-PRESS began with the construction of the current production buildings at Via Résiga 8 in Novazzano. The inauguration of the new factory took place in March 1998.

The first CNC milling machine was put into operation in 1999 for the production of forging tools, as well as the first 3D CAD-CAM program for carrying out complex machining operations in connection with these.

With the arrival in 2006 of Giovanni Curatolo as production manager, the CNC-machining department was expanded with the acquisition of new CNC machines.

In 2017, a new department was opened for the grinding and polishing of brass pieces.

The problems over time showed that it was necessary to be able to directly control every single step of the manufacturing process in order to guarantee a high-quality and efficient service. This allows PERO-PRESS to deliver a quality product to its customers over the years.
