Thirty years have passed since Giulio Bianchini founded the company SIMPRO (Sistemi Macchine Produzione).
In those years, FIAT manufactured well-known car models such as Panda (first version), Uno and Tipo. And Simpro was always in the front line, among the major suppliers of the Turin car manufacturer, with a view to providing technologic tools suitable for industrial production. Waxing, BIW and engine testing systems are the core business in which Simpro succeeded in the national and international scene.
The 90’s witnessed Simpro’s gradual expansion. In those years, they got the first jobs for the most important car manufacturers worldwide, and Simpro do Brasil, the new plant that paved the way to the South American market, was founded. Always in those times, Simpro was awarded with important quality certifications, the internal engineering department was opened (currently the predominant section of the company), and Somel, a company from Levone Canavese, was taken over.
In short, that was a crucial decade, very satisfying and difficult, that led Simpro to be successful in the world scene as a leading company in the industrial automation for the automotive field.
The next decade witnessed the transfer of Simpro’s own expertise, accrued from the engine testing systems, from the car field to the railway sector. In fact, Simpro erected, from the initial architectonic design to the manufacturing of every test stand down to its last detail, the Centre for Experimental Dynamics in Osmannoro, Florence: a colossal project for a cutting-edge plant, of the greatest importance for the Italian research in the railway sector, unique in Europe, which involved the University of Pisa, Florence and Naples.
But we don’t stop here. Simpro’s philosophy, aimed to reinvest the profits to keep growing and creating new jobs, leads the company to found Simpro India, as well as to form business partnerships in China and in the United States.
After 30 years, the expansion process appears not to stop at all, and the future projects are more ambitious than ever: a new company site is being erected. A brand new building that will enable those guys who started up a business in a small warehouse of the Turin suburbs thirty years ago, to keep innovating, modernizing and cherishing the dream of an ever-growing sustainable industry.
To bring honour to this thirty-year activity, Simpro has decided to consolidate its brand through those tools now indispensable for a simple, quick and effective global communication. The new website has already been operational for a couple of months together with the new Web page of the subsidiary company Somel. In addition to this, Simpro intends to strengthen its presence on the social networks: this will enable customers, suppliers and those who may be interested, to keep constantly connected and abreast of the Simpro world.
