Gmm celebrates 50 years

The Fiorano Modenese-based company retraced its half century of dedication and business excellence together with all its employees, while renewing its commitment to the future.

Gmm Group, a longstanding Fiorano Modenese-based company specialising in the distribution of mechanical components and the provision of industrial services for the ceramic sector, celebrated its 50th anniversary on 15 September in the prestigious setting of Villa Coccapani, welcoming more than 200 people including suppliers, customers and employees.

Gmm’s history dates back to 1973 and stands as a testament to successful entrepreneurship, determination and long-term vision. Founded by the barely 20-year-old Attilio Milani, over the years the entire family has contributed to the company’s strategic growth based on the development of new areas of expertise and a constantly expanding portfolio of services. The group has made a number of acquisitions, including BBM Industrial Maintenance, specialising in tailor-made maintenance services and predictive maintenance activities, and Elettromeccanica Malaguti, focusing on industrial revamping. Another important step was the opening of Gmm USA, the US subsidiary located in Clarksville, Tennessee.

Today, the group has a young workforce (the 50 employees have an average age of 35) with a high degree of specialisation in the ceramic sector. One of its top priorities is to continue to innovate industrial processes through digital and sustainable solutions, with a portfolio that includes the supply of high quality components and systems designed for energy efficiency, condition monitoring services and energy audits, as well as remanufacturing of electromechanical components based on the principles of the circular economy.

During the evening, founder Attilio Milani (pictured with his son Luca) expressed his pride and gratitude for everything the group has achieved while looking to the future with confidence and enthusiasm.

“Fifty years of innovation and growth are just the beginning. The Gmm Group will continue to lead the industry towards new horizons of sustainability and success,” he said.
