Solutions for the food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and chemical industries for over 50 years

We specialise in the design and manufacture of stainless steel electric pumps and filters for the food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical and chemical industries.

The company is located in Sordio, in the province of Lodi; it was founded in the 1960s by Bruno Wolhfarth and has gained a prestigious place in the national and international market.

The history of the Bruno Wolhfarth company is one of expertise, ingenuity and intuition, as well as great commitment and dedication. To the brilliant mind of its founder, Bruno Wolhfarth, we owe, even in the aftermath of the company’s founding, the patenting of an innovative round plate filter without gaskets, completely made of stainless steel.

Subsequently, the company expanded its product range with the introduction of stainless steel electric pumps with flexible elastomer impellers, and with patents for sanitary electric pumps and Titanium acid electric pumps.

To this day, machines for industry, equipment for pharmaceutical laboratories, and steel filters are entirely designed and manufactured in the Sordio factory, making a significant contribution to the ‘Made in Italy’ label in the sector.

The Bruno Wolhfarth brand is known in Italy and abroad for the reliability of its products and the excellent quality expressed in the processing of stainless steel and, for over twenty years, also of Titanium for specific applications.

The electric pump casing is machined from solid bar and skilfully machined by turning and milling, with no cast parts and no welds, for smooth, porosity-free surfaces.

The design of industrial machines, filters, pumps and equipment for various sectors is guided by the principle of simplicity; we minimise gaskets and eliminate stagnation and difficult-to-clean spots to make our equipment more hygienic and safe.

Our focus on using the latest technology has always been important, starting in the 1980s when we equipped ourselves with one of the first numerically controlled turning machines.

Over the past few years, we have transformed our production process by equipping ourselves with an OKUMA machining centre for milling and a DMG MORI lathe. We trained our young people on the new 4.0 machines and achieved higher productivity, but above all better precision and surface finish, to meet the strict standards of the pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries.

taff training on software and the use of new machinery is a key element of our automation plan.

We have not discontinued the parallel lathes and the semi-automatic milling machine for some special machining and the tooling of the new automatic machines; we wish, in fact, to preserve and pass on to young people manual skills that would otherwise be lost forever.

OUR STAFF

ROSSELLA WOLHFARTH

Sole Director.

Daughter of founder Bruno Wolhfarth. With a degree in Classical Studies from the Catholic University of Milan, she taught high school literature for several years before joining her parents in the family business. She is present in the company on a daily basis and deals in particular with administration, product certifications and the organisation of advertising campaigns. Since 2016 she has been Sole Director of BRUNO WOLHFARTH s.r.l. s.r.l.

Marco Parapetti

Technical Sales Manager

grandson of the founder, graduated in Economics and Business Management at the Catholic University of Milan, attending evening courses so he could work during the day alongside his grandfather Bruno and treasure his valuable teachings in running the company. He is a partner and Director of the company, technical sales manager and handles Purchasing and customer relations.          

In the last 10 years we have made a generational transition, starting with the inclusion of the grandson of founder Bruno Wolhfarth.

Marco Parapetti received his first teachings from his grandfather and, making the most of them, quickly took over the technical and sales management, assisted by his mother Rossella Wolhfarth, daughter of the founder and still working as Sole Director and Administration and Product Certification Manager.

Marco is supported by a young and motivated mechanical engineer, Matteo Capella, who is in charge of production and design.

In recent years, all the older workers have retired we have taken on young workers and apprentices in their stead.

Within a few years, the human resources situation was completely overturned: we used to have a majority over the age of 50, now 55% are under 40.
