Buffoli entered the American market in 1981. Since then approximately 30% of our machines have been installed in the USA and in the other American Countries, establishing America as a primary Buffoli market
Buffoli has been a registered trademark in the USA since 1999. In 2008, after years of only operating through representatives, Buffoli created a dedicated team of people for sales and service. This team includes personnel committed to the American market who assist our customers with service and maintenance.
All the agents and the service people are constantly trained in Italy and offer first-class support to our customers throughout the entire lifetime of the equipment. Our team meticulously prepare the machine for the run off, follow the equipment acceptance, install the machine and the automation in America, execute the duplicate run off and provide a complete training in English, Spanish or Portuguese.
Afterward, our service and maintenance team supports our customers for any need, including machining cycles, part programs and tooling for new part integration.
Sales and service in North America are managed by BUFFOLI NORTH AMERICA Inc. and various local agencies with strong experience. Machine maintenance is provided by Dynamic Maintenance (based in Auburn, Indiana).
