Our roots are deep and our eyes are on the future
The IMS TECHNOLOGIES Group is made up of many companies each with different traditions that have shaped how they operate over the years.
Even though each company in our group, from the oldest to the youngest, has its own unique qualities, they share in common a deeply technological orientation, unflagging pursuit of the highest quality, and strong innovative spirit, which has driven them to take on ever more demanding challenges.
We are extremely proud of our long history, rooted far back in 1851, and equally proud of our extensive knowledge and peerless skills developed in engineering and mechanical manufacturing. Approximately 14,000 machines installed all over the world are ample proof.
