Forghieri History 

The Carrozzeria Forghieri body shop was set up in 1953 and was named after its founder, Bonfiglio Forghieri. Its main activity during the early years was tied to the automotive market: the workshop’s tasks focused on modifications and painting, on wood and sheet metal, for all types of vehicles. Subsequently, thanks to the skills acquired over time, the workshop specialised in the conversion of cars into lorries.

Towards the end of the 1950s, Commendator Orsi entrusted the Maranello-based factory with the building of all Maserati vehicle chassis. The professionalism with which the company approached this task allowed Forghieri to increase its workload considerably and to expand and renovate its facilities.

At the end of the 1970s, following the resizing process at Maserati, Forghieri changed its scope of action thanks to its expertise in sheet metal processing and stamping activities. The production department developed and built spare body parts for cars and began to build small vans and miniature city cars for Lawil.

 The planning and construction of cabs for fork-lift trucks began in the late 1970s, when demand from the ceramics industry in Sassuolo grew.

At the end of the 1980s, Forghieri launched a new department which specialised in the production of tempered glazing, both flat and curved, for use in a variety of industries, such as the automotive, construction, interior décor, household appliance and shower enclosure markets.




 The cutting-edge technologies implemented by Forghieri, over fifty years of experience and the quality of the manufactured products are all great strengths for a great company that is capable of growing, developing and responding to the demands of the market promptly.
