Metalfilms was founded in 1982 by three businessmen, including Mr. Marino Bimbi that brought in his experience of the high-vacuum sector.
The company grows quickly and only a few years later, 3 metallizers and 3 rewinders/ slitter rewinders are installed. The business policy is set: the company incomes are reinvested to buy more technologically advanced machineries that replace the old ones.
In 1991 the company builds a new factory of 5000mt2, where it moves its enterprise.
In 1997 Marino Bimbi sells one of his companies, an important business in the flat glass market, to purchase all the shares from Metalfilms, and he decides to dedicate himself to this company in a full-time occupation. His enthusiasm and his commitment, qualities that have always distinguished him, help the company grow, and make further investments: in 2005, a metallizer and a rewinder are replaced. The new metallizer has been specifically designed for Metalfilms: it is capable of metallizing any kind of film, even paper, paperboard, woven and unwoven fabric, which are very difficult. This metallizing machine has also sophisticated electronic controls that guarantee maximum repetitiveness of the production and on-time control of all the parameters in order to guarantee a high-quality product and very few production waste at the beginning and at the end of the coil. This specially designed and personalized machine is also able to metallize coils with the largest width available, 2400 mm, which is very useful to cut the production costs down and fulfill our customer’s demands, that are always the focus of our attention.
