HISTORY OF THE COMPANY
LIMA was founded in 1977 as a craft company committed to the production of seals and technical articles in thermoplastic material.
The company was initially established in Cividate al Piano (BG) but few years later moved to Grumello del Monte (BG), a bigger location which is more appropriate to the volume of production. The choice of the new location was not accidental: Grumello del Monte represented the ideal place for the production and the commercialization of industrial seals, tailor made-customised components and products moulded from thermoplastic material for different industrial applications. Grumello del Monte has become over time a benchmark location in the rubber/plastic sector among the provinces of Bergamo, Brescia and Milan, thus rewarding the intuition of the President and the Founder Angelo Baldelli.
In the meantime, in the early 80’s, the company decided to open a branch office in Milan, which was primarily responsible for the marketing of standard products in both thermoplastic and elastomeric material (silicone and polyurethane rubbers). At first, this has enabled the company to quickly meet the requirements of the customers located in the Milan area and to expand our business beyond the regional and national boundaries.
Over the years, the company has achieved such a commercial growth that in 2010 we had to move to a new 3.000’s square meters production in Bolgare (BG).
Today LIMA can rely on its solid and organised structure, which has allowed the company to reach an important commercial development, and an optimal level of quality of its manufactured products and a recognised prestige. At the beginning Lima could not dispose of great financing, nevertheless, the main goal of the company has always been to invest wisely in technology, facilities and cutting-edge machinery, to support the industrial activity. This, combined with hard work and a non-stop will of improvement, has allowed LIMA, year by year, to run the ranking of the reference market, until reaching the top of the category.
LIMA still invests resources in new machineries and technical staff (engineers, technicians, skilled workers). Moreover, LIMA is at the forefront in the development of new special materials and in the research of new applications in which plastic and rubber can make a difference.
