Pangborn Europe's Legacy


In 1959 the company Invictus, located in Milan (Italy), started importing and selling foundry equipment from the United States, including shot blasting machines manufactured by Pangborn Corporation.

In 1962 the company moved to Caronno Pertusella, 20 km north of Milan, changed its name into Fondermatica, and started the manufacture of shot blasting machines under licence of Pangborn Corp.

In 1965 Fondermatica was purchased by Pangborn Corp., and changed its name to Pangborn Europe.
