Our story begins in 1987 when Giuliano, a young, hard-working production manager with a passion for mechanics, turns his many ideas into a reality. With his inventiveness and the experience gained in the sector over almost 20 years, he comes up with a simpler and easier-to-use product and starts making his dream happen.
By starting off in a corner of a small farm (yes, a farm!) in Mediglia, in the suburbs of Milan, and borrowing his first lathe machine, he begins manufacturing the very first ATEM air shaft. As the years go by, our team grows bigger and our products start reaching the international markets, receiving acclaims from the leaders of the industry.
Thanks to our innovative approach and a growing network of trusted partners, we conquer the market by making our clients feel heard and providing them with tailored solutions and excellent service. In 2005, due to the growing demand, we open our new state-of-the-art plant in Galgagnano, and in 2011 we install a cutting edge solar power system that allowed us to fully run our facilities on sustainable energy. In 2017, we mark the 30th year of successful business, celebrating together with collaborators and friends who helped us make this possible.
Every day, with our vision set to the future, we commit to creating new and better products, to constantly innovating our manufacturing facilities and to improving our service, building long-lasting relationships along the way.

We have always been attentive to our contribution to the environment by investing to minimise our ecological footprint and maximise our positive impact. Thanks to a powerful solar energy system installed in 2011, ATEM currently runs all its operations on clean energy and inputs the surplus produced in the national electric system. We constantly research ways to improve, from finding ways to minimise waste at every level of our organisation to setting aside investments for electrical vehicles to use for local pickups and deliveries.

“Relationships are the only thing that matters, in business and in life.”
Jerry Weintraub (producer)
People are what make companies successful. We pose ourselves as a company of people before a company of products. Creating meaningful relationships with the people we work and collaborate with is core in our company. As a matter of fact, we are in business to provide the best possible service but also because we want to grow personally and professionally, share the path with like-minded people and become the best version of ourselves.
WE CARE ABOUT BUILDING LONG-LASTING RELATIONSHIPS
WE LISTEN CLOSELY TO PEOPLE NEEDS AND FEEDBACKS
FULL TRANSPARENCY IS WHAT WE STRIVE FOR
