The story begins at the end of the 1950s, when the Alberti family embarked on an ambitious adventure: to begin operating in the plastic injection moulding industry at a time in which the technology was completely unknown.
This mission was met with a positive reception in the mechanical and – above all – automotive industries. The company produced components orientated towards Italian car manufacturers and expanded in the sector that today represents its core business: heavy vehicles – in particular buses, lorries, trains, underground trains, tractors and diggers. It now supplies all the leading players in the European industry.
The company developed over the years, setting up CNC machining departments and research centres and becoming the leading partner for its OEM clients, supplying a series of integrated systems ranging from electronics to pneumatics. It is the tenacity, consistency and determination that Prima Industries has shown that has helped to reach its current status.
In 1997, Prima moved to its current 3800 m2 headquarters, set on at 15,000 m2 site. The facilities are kitted out with the most sophisticated technological equipment on the market.
It has branched out into a range of fields, although never losing its original philosophy. In 2004, it bought the BB Technologies division, a producer of machinery for wine industry. The company specialises in the customisation of labelling machines and supplying complete production lines for the high-precision bottling of wines, spirits, oils and drinks.
In 2013, Prima took over Tecno Project, thus diversifying further into the lighting of large, communal spaces: hotels, showrooms, conference halls.
The Group is currently present in all five continents and has a commercial presence in over 60 countries around the world.
And all with the highest levels of certification: ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 18001.
The challenge continues…
