We want to be considered a global benchmark in gas compression systems for the excellence of our technological solutions. At FORNOVO GAS, this goal stands on three key pillars:
- Design & Engineering Excellence, ongoing technical research on our compressors
- Green Energy Excellence, the quality of Biomethane,
- Sustainability Excellence, safeguarding people and the environment.
In the mid 1960s, Carlo Bauzone had the foresight to realise the potential of natural gas as a clean and cost-effective fuel for the future. He was a trailblazer in promoting the idea of responsibility and sustainability in the exploitation of natural resources. Mr Bauzone founded FORNOVO GAS in 1969, when natural gas filling stations were still taking their first steps in the world.
FORNOVO GAS has never stopped being innovative over the last 50 years and has continued to expand its operations that started in 1969 with the management of service stations to supply motor vehicles with natural gas. It expanded its operations in 1985 to include the distribution of natural gas in tanks and cylinder trailers. The company also handled the production, packaging, installation, commissioning, and maintenance of natural gas compression systems for transport until 2002.
In 2004, FORNOVO GAS decided to make full use of its know-how and experience acquired over several decades and produce its own line of compressors and solutions for natural gas. From the start, its aim was always to be acknowledged for its superior design and manufacturing based on cutting-edge technologies capable of improving the performance of the operation of its plant and the working life of its components. We have installed more than 1500 compressors all around the world since 2005, in the most diverse environmental, structural and regulatory conditions, making us a leader of excellence at global level. We have had ISO 9001 Quality certification, ISO 14001 Environmental certification, and OHSAS 18001 certification for Health and Safety at Work since 2009. We implemented innovative Carl Zeiss technology for 3D quality control in 2018.
Day by day, new people join the family at FORNOVO GAS bringing new skills and know-how. Today, we have operations in all five continents, with our own Area Managers and the support of our carefully selected international partners on site. We offer our customers our technological excellence, wherever they are in the world, for them to enhance their competitive edge and in order to help protect the environment by delivering high-quality natural gas, a fuel that is safe, cost-effective, and clean.
Vision and Values
To make the compressors and the technological solutions designed and produced by FORNOVO GAS the global benchmark in gas compression.
When FORNOVO GAS took its first steps as a company, its intention was to be a family-run business so it could be certain of safeguarding the values of transparency and integrity that have remained its hallmark, and continue to expand confident of the expertise, experience and professional development of its personnel. Despite its significant expansion, the business and management style at Fornovogas are still firmly rooted in the values of its founder.
DESIGN & ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE
Excellence means more than 50 years of dedicated and passionate pursuit of Quality and Innovation. This is the strength of our unique expertise, which lets FORNOVO GAS manage all of the stages involved in building compressors in-house, starting with the concept and prototyping to the launch of the products on the market.
GREEN ENERGY EXCELLENCE
Excellence means more than 50 years of dedicated production and distribution of Biomethane: clean energy with a low impact on the environment. This is the strength of a strategy that was never more topical and vital as it is today, one that FORNOVO GAS is putting into practice thanks to its superior technical know-how designed, tested and MADE IN ITALY.
Excellence means more than 50 years committed to finding the ideal balance between business development and the protection of the environment. This is the strength of an idea that FORNOVO GAS interprets as its focus on Sustainability: protecting the environment outside, the local area, while taking care of the environment inside, the company as a place of well-being and growth.
In gas industries, especially those involved in the transformation, transport, and storage of Biogas and Biomethane, our mission is to bring together our experience and technological expertise in order to design and build compressors and solutions at the cutting edge for industrial and processing supplies used in a wide range of applications.
We continue to enrich and make full use of our extensive experience so we can be a partner of excellence in the CNG industry, actively promoting the concept of sustainable mobility.
We firmly believe in our work and in our ongoing drive to enhance the quality and reliability of our systems. We have a flexible and open mindset, ready to react to the increasingly fast pace of change in the market and in what our customers need.
Our operations aim at a sustainable use of energy and an increased sense of well-being, pro-actively working to achieve the optimisation of renewable resources.
The innovative technology used – technology based on oil free compressors and zero impact emissions – but most of all our focus on the development of Biomethane, are proof of our proactive approach at FORNOVO GAS: to leave future generations a better place for them to live, and to safeguard the natural environment all around us. In order to promote this, we decided to take the path of respecting the environment, mankind and skilled quality operations, resulting in our care and focus on certifications: ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and ISO 45001.
Our added value: People
At FORNOVO GAS, the professional and personal growth of its staff is a fundamental aspect of its strategy and vision; it is the first step for building consolidated relationships based on trust, within the company and with our customers, suppliers, and institutions.
Today’s increasingly complex, global market demands managerial skills capable of looking ahead, excellent technical skills, and team work. In such a scenario, people are the most precious resource, the true added value.
At FORNOVO GAS, we are committed to pursuing the professional and personal growth of our staff, in a workplace that is modern, pleasant, and respects the dignity of each and every one of us.
By taking care of the environment inside, we are able to offer excellence outside: every work team at FORNOVO GAS has a specific job to do, but each one is always aware of the importance of listening to the customer, to ensure that even the most complex request is handled in a proactive climate of mutual collaboration.
At FORNOVO GAS, excellence starts with Design & Engineering and ends with the Sustainability of our operations. Because excellence is a question of technology and people.
