Since 1961, M. R. Franceschini, Inc. has grown and developed into a diversified Industrial Technologies Sales & Services organization. Focused specializations include Process Instrumentation, Steam & Thermal Energy Systems, Fluid Control Solutions and Tank Protection. M. R. Franceschini, Inc. provides technical support in the pre-design of customized systems, utilizing components drawn from our core-product lines.
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 completing graduate studies in engineering. For the past 10 years, Mario has managed the MRF Process Industries Group serving the industrial manufacturing sector of Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and USVI's.
Facing the 21st Century of global integration, MRF continues to innovate through value added technical services providing total customer satisfaction.
