Officine Ferroviarie Meridionali
Aerfer was an Italian manufacturing company created in 1955 by the merger of IMAM and Officine Ferroviarie Meridionali. The name is a contraction of Costruzioni Aeronautiche e Ferroviarie (Aeronautical and Railway Constructions).
The firm is remembered mostly in connection with the development of Italy's first supersonic jet, the Aerfer Sagittario 2.
