For over 100 years, we have been a leader in industrial turbomachinery and the heart of innovation in Florence, Italy. This heritage continues to power the turbine, compressor, and pump technology we apply to energy and industry today. With new generation gas turbine design, enabling higher efficiency and reliability for operators, today’s Florence manufacturing site uses LEAN production principles, additive manufacturing and integrated digital systems, producing advanced technology solutions as part of Baker Hughes’ energy transition strategic portfolio.
Recently one of our Italian employees, Alessandro Antonelli, discovered some old photographs that chronicled the rich history of this local site.
