Metal Work Pneumatic Distributors

Metal Work is an Italian company specializing in the production of pneumatic components for automation systems. Set up in 1967, Metal Work started out as small workshop manufacturing push-in fittings for compressed air systems. Since then, the company has gradually expanded its structure and production range to become a market leader in pneumatic components for automation systems. They currently market five different product ranges: actuators, valves, FRL units, fittings and handling components, all of which appear in their 1700 pages catalogue.

Leaders in the Automatic Air System Sector

With more than 500 workers in their Concesio (BS) factory and more than 800 people making up the Italian and overseas sales organization, today they are among world leaders in the automatic air system sector. Metal Work obtained ISO 9001 quality certification in 1992, which was followed by the environmental certification under ISO 14001 in 2000. In order to guarantee an occupational health and safety management system, in 2007 Metal Work applied to them the British standard OHSAS 18001, and then moved on to ISO 45001 in 2019. All these certifications have been issued by Dakks-accredited German certification body DEKRA. Since 2016 Metal Work has been certified Elite, the Borsa Italiana project carried out in collaboration with the Ministry of Economy and Finance, Confindustria and ABI, designed to accompany and support the growth of SMEs.

Product distribution and technical assistance are handled by 46 branches in Italy and abroad that are in direct daily contact with the market and offer a comprehensive before/after-sales service. With US stocking and assembly operations in Arlington, TX, they can ship from that stock very quickly. Product quality and an efficient sales organization are the cornerstones on which Metal Work has based its reputation. These qualities enable the company to meet all possible requirements in terms of pneumatic automation.
