A little bit of history
COMI SpA was established in August in 1973, by the two partners Enzo Ballabio and Remo Sertori, with the aim of the design and the construction of thermoforming machines, with a particular attention to the refrigerator industry.
The Group management is nowadays headed by Franco Ballabio, son of one of the founding members.
The company has operated for several years as manufacturer of machineries, while the sale was handled by a joint brand; only in 1998 COMI decides to present itself directly in the market under its own brand, immediately succeeding in breaking through thanks to the quality and high technological level of its products.
In 1994, the idea of enriching its range of products with advanced technology cutting systems, leads the company to enter the field of machines with 3 and 5-axis laser cutting technology.
In 2008 COMI enters the majority of the capital of the then newly established “TECHMILL”, a company specialized in the design and manufacturing of CNC machining centres, acquiring its full ownership in early 2011.

In 2012 COMI SpA acquires BENAZZATO, an Italian company that manifactures machining centres for heavy duty applications (steel, titanium etc.)
In 2013 COMI SpA and AMUT SpA join forces in the packaging industry by creating a single company for the production of thermoforming by leaf for packaging of disposables industry.
In 2015 COMI SpA acquires PARCO, company active in the production and marketing of thermoforming machines with a particular focus on the industrial sector, characterized by single-station solutions.
