BFW Bharat Fritz Werner (BFW) is the largest producer of horizontal machining centres and conventional milling machines. BFW vertical machining centres and special purpose machines are also very popular. With a turnover of Rs.2903 million, and more than three hundred sixty five variants in its product basket, Bharat Fritz Werner is the largest single machine tool manufacturing company in India.

BFW has supplied about 25,000 machine tools to different parts of the world

9-axis Machining CenterBharat Fritz Werner is the first machine tool manufacturer in India to receive the EMS14000 certification for environment protection. The certification has now been upgraded to ISO14001:2004. The company practices water harvesting, and works with World Wildlife Fund to conserve wildlife. The 18-acre campus of Bharat Fritz Werner remains largely covered by grass, trees, herbal plants, and pools.

Growth oriented company - since 1961

Bharat Fritz Werner was established in late 1961. India was then a poor nation. The nation worked under an over protected economy, and the industry developed sluggishly under a system of quotas, licences, and permits. The industry had its ups and downs, forcing several large and well established machine tool companies to close shop in the eighties. The BFW experience was quite the contrary. The company returned healthy profits every year – a trend that continues till today.

BFW Honda AwardBharat Fritz Werner is an independent, growth oriented company. The company is accredited with ISO9001:2000 certification.

Co-creating with customers, BFW produced the first CNC boring and milling machine several years ago. BFW, in recent years, was the first manufacturer in India to launch crankshaft pin milling machine, nine-axis machining center for commercial truck rear axles, software to slash breakdown by ninety-five per cent, paper less TPM, and minimum quantity lubrication compatible machining centers.

Bharat Fritz Werner has a fully owned subsidiary in Germany

Some of the satisfied users of BFW machines include Maruti Udyog, Honda, Bharat Forge, TVS, Toyota, Greaves, Mahindra & Mahindra, etc. BFW has received three awards from Honda, apart from several from other organisations.
