CAFRO is the name of a South African tribe, in whose territories the first diamond fields were discovered. This imaginative name chosen by Giovanni Mancina, founder of the Company in September 1955, brought luck to its business, since today CAFRO is a market leader in the field of diamond and CBN tools for precision mechanics. 60 years later, the third generation of the Mancina family is now carrying on a heritage made of total dedication and technological knowledge.
The headquarters in via Raimondi 55 in Fino Mornasco, Italy were built in 1995 and expanded in 1999 and 2009; here CAFRO now employs more than 80 workers in 3 industrial halls covering 6500 square meters.
