SCM GROUP S.p.A.
Scm Group is the leading industrial group in the sector of machine tools for machining wood, compound materials, plastic, stone, glass and of industrial components (electrospindles, carpentry, electrical panels and cast iron castings).
The roots of Scm Group reach as far back as 1952, when former partners Nicola Gemmani and Lanfranco Aureli, experts in foundries and mechanical machining operations, launch a working relationship that sees them create their first woodworking machine designed by Nicola's son, Dott.Ing. Giuseppe Gemmani. In a short time, Scm makes a name for itself with the brand L'Invincibile, offering a full range of traditional machines that allows the company to successfully launch its products in all markets, becoming the world leader in the industry.
In 1976, Scm develops the first Work Centres for solid wood, doors, windows and shutter systems. In 1985, it enters the sector of machines and systems for panel machining, taking over Morbidelli, and later others to complete the process. From 1992, with the acquisition of Routech, Scm Group develops technologies for the machining processes of wooden elements for the construction industry. In 2002, it takes over CMS, leader in technologies for machining plastic materials and composites, glass and stone. In the years that follow, additional developments enable the group to build a wide range of many products that is unique in the industry, maintaining specialist skills and brands for each technology.
Today the group is a leading producer of technologically advanced solutions for machining a vast range of materials (wood, glass, marble, plastic, metals, composite materials) and can boast centres of excellence qualified in the supply of industrial components.
