About us

ALFONSO FORNI is the brand of a young company with a long history that has its roots in a glorious past focused on the production of refractory biscuits and cooking materials, with distribution in America to companies manufacturing wood-fired ovens as well as in various industrial sectors food in Europe.

The approach to the world of wood-fired ovens begins with their marketing by Nunzio Alfonso who, after many years of hard work, spirit of sacrifice and entrepreneurial ability, decides to use the experience acquired by dedicating himself to the design of wood-fired ovens, having always been a great enthusiast. He initially founded the "Bazarnuele" company in Giammoro, in the province of Messina, which inaugurated a thriving production of indirect cooking ovens, i.e. wood-fired ovens equipped with a separate cooking chamber and combustion chamber. With the increase in sales and consequent production, the company moved to a new and larger production plant in the Giammoro Industrial Area, making a notable leap in quality which saw the acquisition of new machinery used in the production of its ovens wood-fired and an expansion of its staff: an evolution that takes the name of NUNZIO ALFONSO SRL, the final realization of an ambitious project in which to carry out all production, logistics and warehousing activities in a single large structure that houses up to 60,000 Kg of raw materials and equipped with the most modern and functional technologies such as a 2500 Watt TRUMPF Laser that cuts sheet metal and raw materials into 3000x1500 sheets for the construction of wood-fired ovens and a 110-ton CNC-controlled VICLA bending machine, all managed in workshop 4.0, as well as 5 MIG/MAG welding stations and the following machines already present: a notching machine, a calender, a lathe, a shear, a punching machine.
