FyA Basile was founded in 1945, january 2nd in the city of Chacabuco, Buenos Aires, as Basile Hnos & cia. The founders, Fernando and Alberto Basile, first started making noodles and spaghetti, and flour with one corn mill.
The wheat mill was inaugurated, located in a next building, with a grindability of 50 tons per day. In 1968, the grindability was improved to 75 tons per day.
Seeking for improvement as the motor that always characterizes FyA Basile, the company builded an storage plant for cereal in a suburban area of the city. Constituted by three cells, the capacity of storage is of 3000 tons in each one of them.
In August, a raging fire destroyed the wheat mill completely and affected part of the corn mill. Although it was a devastation for the company, they decided not to abandon their dream, and with an enormous effort and thinking that future would bring lots of opportunities they demolished the mill remains an builded a new one with a bigger grindability: 100 tons of flour per day. The new building, inaugurated in 1974, was equipped with the technology of Bühler pneumatic machinery, becoming one of the most moderns mills in the world by that time.
Fernando y Alberto decided to stop making noodles and focalized in producing fluor.
The quality of the FyA Basile`s products was validated in 1994, when the company achieved the ISO 9001:94, a norm of quality that keeps been revalidated every year.
The company expands its commercial fronteer to limit countries. The same year they starts producing beer gritz (degerminated corn in pieces).
By 2001, FyA expanded the gathering plant of cereals with five new cells, improving the capacity of storage to 40 thousand tons.
In 2002, the eagerness to export their quality products took form in a commercial relationship with Angola. In that same year the capacity of production of the corn mill was improved to allow the production of flour and gritz at the same time.
Nowadays FyA. Basile has a grindability of corn fluor of 120 tons per day, and the production of wheat flour reaches 250 tons per day.
In 2015 we are celebrating 70 years since we first started to elaborate our products, well known by its elevated quality. We keep on expanding with the construction of a new mill in the city of Salto (Buenos Aires) that will generate new sources of employment, apart of the 150 that generates actually; and will raise substantively the grindability of FyA BASILE.
