Pursue production excellence and quality by establishing and maintaining a sustainable balance and growth with all stakeholders.
“Acciaierie Ferriere Vicentine”: the name encloses the entire history of a company founded in 1896 by its founder, Antonio Beltrame, who arrived in Vicenza and chose to devote himself to the processing of barrel hoops, horseshoes, and carriage wheel rims, before moving on to mechanical repairs, small carpentry with forge and the manufacture of wire rod nails.
With the early development of his enterprise, the founder immediately proved to be a careful innovator. He realised the advantages of electrical energy over thermal energy and invested, year after year, in the growth of the workshop, adding foundry, wire drawing and punching shop departments, right up to the hardware shop. Within a few years, the ‘Premiato Stabilimento Meccanico a forza elettrica con Fonderia Antonio Beltrame’ established itself quickly in terms of competence and quality. In the first decade of the 20th century, the Beltrame factory produced steam engines, compressors, pumps, bridges, canopies, transmissions, and equipment for mills and industrial plants.
Soon, however, it opened to an increasingly broader market, with a focus on the organisational model, innovations and technical progress, work ethics and a primitive but effective form of corporate welfare. All these characteristics have been maintained as the company has grown and internationalised to this day.
The correspondence between the family name and the company – which at the time also represented a physical contiguity between factory and home – as well as the participation and contribution of all the
This last aspect has led to a harmonious synthesis between the culture of the family business and the characteristics of the managerial company, which feeds the spirit with which today Beltrame management interprets business and its growth, combining tradition, progress, modernity, and improvement.
Acciaierie Ferriere Vicentine Beltrame has gone through three industrial revolutions, and today has become a leading international steel company: AFV Beltrame Group.
Three plants are in Italy: Vicenza, San Giovanni Valdarno (AR) and San Didero (TO).
The Beltrame Group considers the respect and protection of the health and safety of workers and of the environment in which its plants are located, fundamental principles to be followed in carrying out its activities. This vision is implemented by favouring dialogue with employees, providing them with adequate training and continuous awareness and involvement.
The Vicenza headquarters has the task of coordinating activities concerning the management of Environment, Health, and Safety (EHS) issues, defining lines of action, monitoring their application, and coordinating the activities carried out in the individual Italian and foreign plants. In each plant, resources specifically trained and dedicated to the management of activities on the subject are allocated.
