70 years ofHISTORY

GONAFE was established in 1948, but only in 1976 specialized in the production of parts for the metallurgy industry, working exclusively in the turning of parts for kitchen and bathroom taps industry, for the automotive industry, for water heaters and boilers, for the pressure cooker industry and, in smaller percentage, of other type of turned parts.

With its headquarters in Arrifana, the company’s two buildings have a covered area of about 5.500 m2. With a vast technical and technological know-how, coupled with a rapid response capacity, GONAFE constantly seeks new markets and customers, building a solid path with the future in mind. Currently, 80% of GONAFE's production is towards the national market, with most of this production incorporated into export products.

Today GONAFE has more than 70 years of experience and an image based on 4 fundamental pillars:
know-how, flexibility, precision and quality.

The search for new paths, innovative solutions and alternative production ideas is the daily challenge and motto of GONAFE, with the ever-present goal of improving the satisfaction of our customers.

The company is divided into two buildings, the first for administrative services, production, quality control and a raw material storage area. In the second we have the production tool manufacturing and the final inspection areas, the packaging line and finished product storage area.

Our excellent human resources are distributed by:

  • Management – 3
  • Administrative Services – 3
  • Production - 61
  • Quality Management and Control - 7
  • Supporting Roles - 26

GONAFE has a very technologically advanced production equipment consisting of 49 mechanical multi-purpose lathe machines up to 9 CNC axis and 42 mono-spindle lathes of which 37 are CNC. Our Quality Department is also particularly well equipped with all the necessary equipment for the quality control of the parts produced.

To minimize the risk of supplying our customers with non‑conforming parts, the company has 6 artificial vision machines that enable us to control their critical dimensions to 100%.

Being able to sharpen and produce custom tools strengths our autonomy, eficiency and reduces our lead times.

With the passing of the years some of our customers have become partners. These partnerships are long‑standing, with some of them lasting dozens of years. They are characterized by a reciprocal satisfaction that both parties are proud of.

Due to our commercial and ethics policies, we have been growing at all levels in a solid and sustainable manner.

The constant improvement of the services we provide results in our customers' satisfaction which has been our main concern.

We were ISO 9002:1994 certified in 1998 and, in 2003, we obtained the ISO 9001:2000 certification.

In February 2011 the company was certified according to the norm ISO/TS 16949 and we currently hold a ISO 9001:2015.
