The Melesi family founds the Officine Melesi in Valsassina. Following the history and tradition of the community living in that geographical territory, the company soon conquers a leading positioning in the forging  market because of the production of high quality tools for agriculture.

1952 - 1975

The production of flanges begins and the new criteria adopted for the optimization of the productive processes get the company to enter the international market scenario of oil & gas and chemical products.
The range of products enlarges, the requests increase, the company grows.


The production of heavy products in line with the needs of the just arising off shore market is possible thanks to a 20000 kgm forging hammer.

1981 - 1987

Production increases  more and more thanks to the installation of the first CNC lathes and of one 2500 tons forging press.  
In the same period, the production range is enlarged thanks to a 1200 tons hydraulic forging press, a roling mill and by the new heat treatment department.  
At managing level  a large innovation is introduced by the informatization of the orders.


1993 - 1997

A forging hammer of 35000 kgm is installed and the production process increases. The quality management system is certified in compliance with ISO 9001.
 It’s the beginning of a production and managing industrialization in order to grant a future coherent with the needs of the new millennium.

2000 - 2010

In the first decade of the new millennium new hydraulic presses, rolling mills and powerful forging hammers are installed as well as new heat treatment furnaces and automatic warehouse are built up.
Consolidation of a fully integrated manufacturing system to meet the highest global standards of product specification.
Recognised technological competency led to the establishment of qualified relationship with major engineering companies, leading to the successful completion of several project across different sectors.

2011 - PRESENT

Strategy in recent years has focused on the acquisition of external manufacturing facilities with a view to increase our production capacity and efficiency to reduce lead time.
Investments, that have been prioritized to include environment and health-safety controls, allowed us to attain our objective ISO 14001 certification and then the OH SAS 18001.
Innovation, efficiency, effectiveness, close attention to client needs have strengthened Officine Ambrogio Melesi's position as a market leader in the sector. This is supported by both our results of today and our proven long-term record of sustainability for all our stakeholders.
