Verniciatura Padana Foresi was established in 1984 in Zingonia, in northern Italy. The company deals with the processing and coating of metals. Split across two plants, our systems are automated and remotely monitored. Our highly qualified staff carry out systematic scheduled and preventative maintenance on all of our systems.
Our clients operate in numerous different sectors including – amongst many others – furnishings, agricultural and earth-moving machinery, domestic appliances, cars and motorbikes, refrigeration, heating, lighting, shelving, springs for trains and industrial use, gardening and hardware.

The company carries out its operations across two different plants.
The first plant covers a surface area of 9,000 m2 and is located on a 17,000 m2 site. Here, we carry out sandblasting, thermal stripping and electrocoating.
The second plant, which has its own warehouse, is situated in Verdello. It covers a surface area of 7,100 m2 and is located on a 20,000 m2 site. Here, we carry out the operations of sandblasting, thermal stripping, phospho-degreasing and powder coating.
An integral part of the production process is the treatment system for the chemical/physical purification of the water being generated by the coating plant, in order to ensure that the readings taken at the outlet comply with the parameters set by current legislation. To avoid the malodorous emissions that are a feature of the process of electrophoretic deposition, a 3-chamber regenerative thermal oxidiser has been installed.
The plant is also equipped with an air/water exchanger that is capable of recovering the heat contained in the fumes to pre-heat the water in the pre-treatment baths and to heat the plant during the winter. Thanks to the technical solution deployed, it has also been possible to reduce the plant’s CO2 emissions, which are now lower than they would have been if a traditional regenerative thermal oxidiser had been used, without additional heat recovery. The functionality of the system is dependent on the use of high-efficiency ceramic honeycomb material to accumulate the thermal energy of the purified air as it leaves the combustion chamber, in order to then recycle that heat, during the subsequent phase, within the polluted current entering the unit. The presence of 3 chambers ensures maximum treatment efficiency at all times, even during the transient phase in which the flows are inverted. The combined use of the oxidiser has enabled the company to achieve its energy-saving objectives. In this regard, we have focused in particular on the decontamination of the buildings, and to this end the asbestos roofs of the production facilities have been completely removed.
