96 Years of Producing Quality Machines

Our History

Over 96 years ago, Frank Bergandi, an Italian immigrant, created America’s first automated chain link weaver, founding Bergandi Machinery. In the mid-1950s, master machinist Herb Rohrbacher joined, enhancing productivity and expanding product lines. By 1961, Rohrbacher owned the company, diversifying into wire drawing, galvanizing, and more. In 1994, Bergandi refocused its efforts solely on the design, marketing, and manufacturing of wire processing machinery. In 2001, Scott Barsotti acquired Bergandi and became CEO, emphasizing customer service, innovation, and technology. Today, Bergandi is a world-class machinery leader, operating from a 25,000 sq ft facility in Ontario, California. With 96 years of expertise, we offer a wide range of wire forming, processing, and welding equipment for the fencing, construction, mining, and agricultural industries. We also offer engineering, consulting, technical support, and training to improve your productivity and profitability.
