Established 1981

From Emilio Bardiani to Emanuela and Luca, towards the whole world

Bardiani Valvole’s birthplace has always meant a lot to the company: Fornovo Taro is an important crossroads in the Food Valley which leads to the Mediterranean ports.


The company was established in 1981 by Emilio Bardiani – the father of Emanuela Bardiani, Managing Director, and Luca Bardiani, the company’s Chairman and CEO – to make valves for some of the most important food manufacturing companies in the area.  It is the quality of our solutions and services that has allowed Bardiani Valvole to reach customers operating in the same sector all over the world as well as to make quality valves for other sectors.


Our commitment in such delicate sectors has allowed us to develop a deep understanding of the respect needed for product integrity.  A commitment which can be seen in the production of valves for the specific nature of the various spheres of use and applications.
