Our story dates back to 1987 when Giuliano, a skilled mechanical production manager, set out to turn his ideas into reality. With two decades of experience and a flair for inventiveness, Giuliano came up with a simpler and more user-friendly product that marked the start of his dream journey.
From humble beginnings in a corner of a small farm in suburban Milan, where he borrowed his first lathe machine, Giuliano created the very first ATEM air shaft. As our team grew and our products gained popularity in international markets, we earned accolades from industry leaders.
In 2005, due to increasing demand, we upgraded to a new state-of-the-art plant in Galgagnano, and in 2011, we installed a cutting-edge solar power system that allowed us to operate fully on sustainable energy. As of 2023, we have expanded our reach by collaborating with partners who supply our air shafts and chucks in 23 different countries. Our solutions can now be found in every corner of the globe, as we continue to grow and serve a diverse range of customers.
