We possess nearly half a century of history in the production sector of technical products in rubber and in thermoplastic materials. This is P.M.I. Moulds and Moulding a company which, with precision and passion, since the mid 70’s have placed their work and experience at the service of the customer, including the prospect of realising moulds and products from design using a variety of materials in order to satisfy any specific requirements of the customer.
All this is made possible thanks to the ultra-modern service of rapid prototyping, as well as to the exemplary and expert planning department. Having a fully equipped structure implements the integrated service that allows to supply completed articles with inserts and metal finishing. It is worth mentioning the highly efficient logistics management spread evenly over two units: the “historical” Lombard venue and the latest and ample venue in Piedmont. These two warehouses enable to stock the numerous moulds and ensure a constant availability of the materials, thus the production and the delivery of each commission becomes extremely rapid.
Likewise, within each sector of both companies, the human resources have a top quality and well trained staff who are completely dedicated to client satisfaction, thanks to constant production monitoring aligned with the perfect planning in every aspect of the trade.
With over 40 years of experience and passion, we possess remarkable skills in the creation and use of moulds, as well as maintaining the expertise and the continual investigation of techniques, materials and mixtures.
From supplying and managing the warehouse, designing the moulds and the prototypes, creating the moulds for the production, controlling the quality and fully complying to the delivery schedules.
In the performance of the machinery, in all the stages of the manufacturing, in the control of the product, in the relationship with the suppliers and the customers.
Concerning the use of manufacturing techniques of substances and raw materials, of the industrial machinery and equipment along with on-going staff training.
Control of the stages of the manufacturing process, monitoring the intermediate results, administrative efficiency and financial solidity.
The P.M.I. Moulds and Moulding company was first established in 1975 in Bareggio (MI) by Fabio Ciccioni, an expert in the field of industrial designing and model building in plastic and in scale, for the petrochemical sector and responsible for ENI construction sites. Today it seems strange to talk about model building in plastic for the design of big plants, but one must consider that in those days the use of the computer, and above all advanced planning software programs did not exist. Fabio Ciccioni places the main target on supplying articles for industrial model building to planning companies, using his own competence and management skills, as well as vanguard machinery, in order to offer products and components with rapidity and major efficiency than once. He is in this way able to assist big clients such as Snam Progetti and Foster Weehler. Not surprisingly the acronym P.M.I. stems from “Particolari per il Modellismo Industriale”(Particulars for Industrial Model Building”.
After a while the individual company established by Fabio Ciccioni was to expand into other typologies of products, consequently extending its field of action. Before long, thanks to the investments for the purchase of machinery such as injection presses, the company was to develop its production towards different markets and types of clients. One of many examples is the take- over in 1978 of the firm F. Bottini, specialised in the production of minute plastic products for the furniture industry, since then a sector that would constitute an important part of the “business” of P.M.I.
In 2006 Alessandro Ciccioni, the son of Fabio, opens the P.M.I. Moulds and Moulding Piedmont operational unit in Mottalciata, in the province of Biella. A location set only a few kilometres from the Carisio exit on the A4 Milano-Torino highway both strategical for supplying and half way between Torino and Milano.
With the opening of the Mottalciata operational unit the machinery pool was quickly expanded in both plants, vanguard presses for injection and compression moulding were introduced thanks to which it is, at present, possible to easily produce technical articles of small dimensions as well as moulds of considerable sizes, practically from 0,1 grams to one and a half kilo in weight.
