1967 is the year GEFIT (Gruppo Engineering Fornitura Impianti e Tecnologie, i.e. Engineering Group for Supply of Equipment and Technology) was founded.
In that year, in a small apartment on the suburbs of Alessandria, a few engineers coordinated by the one who would later become President of the Company until 2013, when he passed away, took on a pioneering adventure combining their technical skills with the ambition of giving life to an innovative project.
In a well underway industrial context aimed at the production of plastic closures, which went on at the same time, and which showed the natural destiny of the mechanization plants necessary for production, it was decided to capitalize on one’s skills in the field of industrial automation.
In those years, many of the assembling processes that we know today as automatic, were instead carried out manually. The will to offer better quality solutions and the contextual development of the automotive industry were key factors in the success of the company.
The years that followed were marked by important goals achieved in the name of quality and commitment, with a strong vocation for internationalization that led the company, over time, to establish the current four sales & service offices and four production sites in America, Asia and Europe.
