Formtek Inc., Cleveland, OH, has become the exclusive North American distributor for Bossi, an Italian manufacturer of inline and secondary surface processing equipment for roll forming and tube mill systems, based in Milan.

Formtek already works with Bossi in North America and has integrated and supplied Bossi equipment on Yoder tube mills for customers.

“The equipment Bossi supplies is high quality, reliable and they have been a good company to work with. Additionally, our customers have provided positive feedback using the machinery, so expanding our relationship to be their North American distributor seemed like a natural fit,” says Formtek's senior vice president Jack Pennuto Jr. "For both new installations and existing tube mills, Bossi’s bead grinding, strip polishing and OD processing equipment have a lot of opportunities for the roll forming, precision tube and stainless steel tube producers in the US, Canada and Mexico."
