The story began in 1960, when Renato Della Torre and his brother Luigi founded Galvanotecnica Diamante, a company operating in the galvanic sector mainly serving the textile industry.
Starting from 1967, the company began to diversify its offer by investing in equipment and machineries with high technological innovation in the mechanical engraving sector. The company name was changed to SIMEC - Società Italiana MECcanica - explaining the ambitions of expansion into new markets. Towards the middle of the 70s, the company seized the opportunity offered by the introduction of flexographic printing and the consequent industrial development of the packaging sector and converted its core business focusing on the production and mechanical engraving of rollers.
In the early 1980s, the company consolidated its activities in the packaging world and also began to operate in the field of embossing, in particular in the Tissue, a sector in hyperbolic development in those years.
