Fondmetal's history began in 1970 in Palosco, Italy as an aluminum foundry by Gabriele Rumi. Stefano Rumi, son of Gabriele is the present owner of the company.
Gabriele Rumi had a passion for cars and racing and saw a demand for the manufacturing of parts for the automobile industry. In Palosco they made induction manifolds, water conduits, clutch bellhousing, oil sumps, cylinder heads and engine blocks for clients such as Maserati Biturbo, Fiat, Iveco, OM and Magneti Marelli. For Gabriele Rumi this was not enough. He found himself too reliant on his customers in a sensitive time period following the oil crisis. This led him to the courageous decision of launching his own product line. The choice of product was alloy wheels due to his involvement and passion for the automobile industry. From there the Fondmetal brand grew and was established as a leader in forged and cast wheel design, engineering and manufacturing in Italy.
