Austempering specialists

We are leaders in the development and production of ADI – Austempered Ductile Iron, which is produced by Zanardi Fonderie from a strong integrated process in our factory in Minerbe (Verona, ITALY), including the austempering heat treatment. Consequently, “Zanardi” means reliability throughout the world: ours is not just a foundry but a place where passion meets excellence.
Zanardi Fonderie S.p.A. is certified: TUV 50001   Emas    TUV 14001 All our certifications
