The Italian Marconi Company manufactures gas and electric furnaces
used for manufacturing aluminium products. It is Italy’s larges manufacturer and one of the biggest in Europe. It has agencies in Great Britain, Brazil, Italy, Thailand, Israel, Spain, Mexico, and France. The technology experts

not been active in Finland before.

Marconi Company was founded in Milan in the year 1946. It started out
as an aluminium foundry and specialized in designing and producing foundry moulds. In the 1950s Marconi began building aluminium melting furnaces,
at first only for its own use. Because the performance of the furnaces was excellent, Marconi started to sell them to other foundries as well. And because the demand for different furnaces grew constantly, Marconi decided to concentrate exclusively on designing, developing, and producing furnaces for melting aluminium.

A co-operation agreement was signed between Northcast Ky and Italian Eredi Scabini in early August 2007. The agreement covers the marketing in Finland of products required in steel, iron and non-ferrous metal production, such as refractory materials for furnaces and inductors.  

Established in 1945, Eredi Scabini manufactures refractory materials and other products related to handling molten metal. The company’s customers include international steel mills and steel, aluminium and copper foundries. 

Northcast was established this year, focusing on foundry operations and helping customers to further develop equipment and methods for casting wires, slabs, billets and different profiles.
