From a specialist mechanical engineering firm to a building kit system supplier
Established in 1976 as a manufacturer of specialist machinery, item Industrietechnik GmbH has pursued an unrelenting customer focus and a consistent commitment to ongoing development. Today, item is a global company and the supplier of an industrial building kit system.
A skilled partner to industry
item Industrietechnik und Maschinenbau GmbH was founded in 1976. Based in Solingen, Germany, the design office and manufacturer of specialist machinery quickly became a skilled partner to industrial companies.
As the demand for specialised industrial solutions continued to grow, item shifted the focus of its activities toward specialist mechanical engineering. Since then, item has become a successful corporate group dedicated to the development and worldwide sale of high-quality components used to build fixtures, machinery and plants.
item Industrietechnik GmbH is committed to offering its customers around the world maximum product availability at a fair price/performance ratio and delivering highly skilled, 24-hour customer service. In addition to working in close proximity to customers to provide expert advice on products and applications, item delivers a range of services that covers everything from picking and processing orders to putting together construction kits and installing complete solutions.
To ensure item can deliver on these promises, the company has developed a strong base in Germany, opened branches in Switzerland, Italy and Poland, established subsidiaries in the U.S. and China and developed a worldwide network of partners.
item products stand for innovation, functionality and design
Product development and improvement are highly valued at item. Innovation, functionality and design are top priorities. To ensure item customers can benefit from versatility in factory equipment engineering, the tried-and-tested MB Building Kit System is continuously growing and expanding. Additional systems and lines from item also enable customers to implement specific solutions in the areas of lean production, ergonomic work bench design and clean room applications.
