    75 years as lathe manufacturers... shall we celebrate?

    When everyone else was turning to ad hoc production of machinery and turnkey projects, we decided to focus on the serial production of CNC lathes.

As we mark 75 years of our history, we are fully aware of how this pandemic has changed us all. Now is not the time for big crowds, nor shortening distances, but there are many ways of celebrating.
