Columbia Metals Enters Forging Partnership

3 OCTOBER 2011

Columbia Metals now has the capability to offer forgings to its customers thanks to a recent partnership with Forgia Rapida of Italy. Based in Bologna, Forgia Rapida can offer customers the facility of both ferrous and non-ferrous forgings, machined and ground.

Forgia Rapida, also formed in 1961, was traditionally noted for its steel forgings including carbon steels, alloy steels and stainless steels. However, the company can offer special forgings from many materials including 300 series, 400 series, 15/5PH, 17/4 PH, duplex and super-duplex stainless steels.

The plant operates under an ISO9001:2000 approval and is also certified by authorities such as Lloyd's Register, RINA, ABS, Bureau Veritas and CERMET. With Forgia Rapida's vast metallurgical, technical and quality experience in the forging industry we can ensure all enquiries are answered quickly and effectively. Past customers and third party approvals include G.E. Gas, Alstom Power, Ingersoll Rand, Cooper Cameron and Tyco Flow Control.
