We are a metallurgical factory that since 1970 we dedicated exclusively to the manufacture of diverse types of electrical transformers for the Argentine and international market.
We are suppliers of power transformers for electric distribution companies, oil companies, power generation of all types and in particular renewable energy, among other items. FOHAMA transformers are a fundamental component of the Argentine electric grid.
In the country we are suppliers of EDESUR, EDENOR, all Provincial Energy Companies, the different Electric Cooperatives, conventional Generators and those that use renewable resources (wind energy, solar, etc.); And the oil companies, the state-owned YPF, Panamerican, Pluspetrol, among others.

FOHAMA's integrated management system includes: Quality, Safety and Occupational Health and Environment.
Care about product quality, health and safety of workers and respect for the environment, through a reasonable use of energy, the use of approved materials and the final disposal of waste, earned us 3 national and international certifications.
The intellectual-craft production
Our great competitive strength is the special transformers. It is in the particularity of the requirement of a client where FOHAMA has the experience, the capacity in engineering and development to face the challenge. Our expertise to produce non-serial transformers allows customers to obtain a tailor-made product, at prices and terms of standard equipment.
The productive process intertwines innovation, the generation of added value and artisanal work. The commitment of FOHAMA starts from the involvement of workers, engineers, technicians, operators, who integrate private knowledge into a project that transcends us. The management and administrative offices in front of the factory, the engineers touring the facilities and constantly training the workers, enables the development of a composite work that has as fundamental links the intellectual development, the constant specialization and the understanding of the productive link.
A great company that chooses to be a small business
In FOHAMA the social capital is national and it is the one that makes the decisions in the company. Commitment to the firm exceeds the quest to maximize profits. Beyond the growth that we had in the last years we are a family company, that we decided to grow incorporating professionals to manage the different areas. But the direction of the process is still in our hands, it is a way of life and a commitment to our workers, suppliers and therefore our clients, who rely on our human capital.
Constant innovation as business policy
Some years ago at FOHAMA we incorporated to our production line transformers of Dry Type, or encapsulated - without fluid - and fireproof for the installation in big companies, shops and buildings, among others. In this way the needs of multiple individuals are satisfied, while guaranteeing the public-citizen safety of our clients and the population in general.
The transformers for Wind Energy, form a new field of insertion. And in FOHAMA we have already developed the technological capacity to install them in the wind towers (Slim).
From FOHAMA we seek to contribute to the construction of the national productive network, productive innovation and the gradual transformation of the energy matrix, in favor of clean and renewable energies that allow the sustainability of the activity over time.
Like any national industry we contribute to national technological independence.
In FOHAMA we define ourselves as a family business in a broad sense. Three generations of three Argentine families forged a solid identity that incorporates its workers - many of whom go back to the beginning of the firm in 1970 - in a community that transcends us and which advocates maintaining - on our scale - an economic circuit Virtuous around capital, investment, training-specialization, work, production and consumption.
The effort and dedication of those who make FOHAMA, were always the conditions of possibility for the processors to reach different countries of the world. The training and continuous improvement of our employees, the strategic management of the founding families, and the interpretation of the customers' needs, guarantee the excellence of the products, Corporate Social Responsibility and the sustainability of the activity.
