Mario R. Franceschini, P.E., started MRF INC. in 1961, as an engineer and manufacturer’s representative of Boilers equipment and process instrumentation. He provided his services to the island wide sugar cane industry that operated at the time. In 1971, with the petrochemical complex that was emerging on the south coast of PR, MRF developed a satellite office in Ponce, PR to meet the needs locally. Later, MRF saw the rising development of the pharmaceutical industry all over the island and the need to shift industry focus to FDA regulated, chemical / pharmaceutical processes.
In the 1990’s, local and federal Tax exempt limitations on industries have continued to reduce industrial plant expansions and MRF focus shifted from pursuit of projects & expansions, to the specialized MRO investments and automation/optimization options among our strategic partner industries and utilities.
In 2001, Mario Franceschini Salom, our third generation Franceschini joined the family firm after graduating with a Biomedical Engineering degree and within the last 10 years the MRF Process Instrumentation & Technical Services Group has provided additional and greater value to our customers in the areas of: services training, calibration and maintenance and power quality solutions. Facing the 21st Century of Global integration, MRF continues to innovate through value added Technical Services for Total Customer Satisfaction.
