Mondial Forni's story begins a long time ago, in 1947, and it is the story of a dream that continues for 75 years: that of Arturo Benini who, after the war, decided to contribute to the reconstruction of the country by opening an artisan mechanical workshop in Verona, where he made machinery for the food industry.
These were the years of the economic boom: Arturo enlarged his business and supplied the numerous workshops where bread, which was at that time was at the heart of most Italians' diet, was baked. So in 1965, he decided to produce the first ovens with Perkins technology and then acquired the patent for the steam tube oven: the rings were manually bent by five workers, then filled with water and welded.
This was the turning point: the workshop became a company, which his sons Giancarlo, Roberto and Rinaldo joined. A plot of land was purchased in the new Verona Z.A.I. and the current headquarters were built between 1981 and 1983. Thanks to the first orders from abroad, Mondial Forni began to export: to France, Spain, Algeria, Poland and soon all over the world.
The company took on an international dimension, the range grew in quantity and innovation, and the brand became synonymous with Italian excellence in the sector. Success is also the result of the management and commercial drive of the third generation of the Benini family: Stefano, Andrea, Alessandro and Francesca.
Today, Mondial Forni continues to expand its range of professional ovens, in tune with the market's renewed interest in quality artisanal bakery and pastry. Arturo's dream evolved and was shared by a new, larger family, made up of owners, management, workers, partners and customers, who together uphold the values and enthusiasm that have made the history of our brand.
