Over a century of history

The company


Gaudenzi was founded in 1891 thanks to the intuition and entrepreneurial ability of Cav. Ettore Gaudenzi. Throughout over 130 years of intense R&D and production of technological solutions for metal sheet punching and wire mesh weaving, the company has become an international reference point for micro-perforation.

Nowadays, Gaudenzi is a constantly evolving company, thanks to over 60 specialized employees. In recent years, huge investments have been made in the production department and in customized machinery.
