The company started as a small workshop by the engineer Enea Mattei, initially machining remnants of wartime material purchased from the state. However, it wasn’t long until the business started manufacturing air compressors to provide for the growing industrial market and the ensuing demand.

The company has its headquarters in Vimodrone, in the province of Milan, which houses the management, administrative and sales offices. The Innovation and Industrialisation department is also based at the company HQ.

Their production sites are situated in Vimodrone and Verdello-Zingonia, in the province of Bergamo, and in Baltimore, Maryland of the United States.
