OMBF Enological Machines - About us

Familiar atmosphere, global attitude

Familiar spirit and high levels of specialization are the concepts on which OMBF bases its work. Established in 1998 in Canelli (Asti) thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit of the Brothers Bene, OMBF could improve year after year its experience in the supply of machines for the oenological branch, by using extremely flexible and simplified mechanical technologies.

The constant research of innovation and cutting-edge solutions is the fil rouge leitmotif of the story of the company, a constant feature the brothers Angelo and Giuseppe Bene passed on to the second generation who entered the business.

This peculiar feature enabled designing and manufacturing the first 4.0 machines, with characteristics that offer the operator a totally automated and interlocked production. But the wide offer of OMBF includes solutions able to meet all bottling needs - corking, capping, and wire-hooding - with stand-alone equipment, mono-block and triblock machines (in automatic and semi-automatic versions) for wineries that produce from 300 up to 7000 bottles/hour. Besides specific machines for the processing of sparkling wines with classical method and the bottling of beer, the range of products includes also packaging machines, to add further elements to the "turn-key" lines, completed with their accessories.

OMBF offers products, but does not limit to products, it is characterised by the great passion increased during the 20 years' experience of its founders, the deep knowledge of the sector and the continuous research that led to a growth aimed at meeting the requests of an international market in continuous evolution.


The flexible and multitasking approach of OMBF is aimed at offering its customers a complete service starting from the careful advice during the stage before the purchase, to find the most suitable equipment for the most diverse needs, until designing customized machines.

The mechanics and the internal movements are simplified to ensure easy maintenance and use. Besides ensuring a long life of the machines, the materials and components used (304 and 316 stainless steel, steel alloys, alimentary grade plastic materials, high quality mechanical and electrical components) are chosen to meet the food international standards.

The know-how of the company, acquired in many decades, is put at disposal of the customers also at the stages of installation, starting up of the production system, for the whole period of warranty and later on, for a complete after-sales service.

The milestone of the 25 years of our company was the occasion to draw up a report of our attainments, the challenges we had to face successfully, and the commitment that enabled us to grow and become reliable and well known in our sector. The steps of our success include the building of a new headquarter location for the company, the expansion of the staff, the participation to more specialised events, and the extension of the range of products with new cutting-edge models. Yet, besides taking stock of the past, this important anniversary encouraged us to look to the future and think of new goals, inspired by our important experience.

What remains unchanged is the familiar approach to our work, the solid base from which OMBF started its activity and from which its founders could shape the organization of the company and handed over to the new generations in the daily direct and personal relations with the customers.

«OMBF was generated from the direct experience we had in this sector. The direct experience of the internal dynamic of the enterprises and the knowledge of the needs of the final customers, led us to establish a firm able to offer the wineries, even small of average companies, simple and customized solutions, a work in which we could express our passion for this branch of production and that could inspire our sons. Now, after 25 years, we cannot but be satisfied with the results we could attain also thanks to the second generation that is gradually taking over the management of the company."
