On 11th November 1944 the company with the name “Tecnici Elettro Meccanici Associati” has been established in Somma Lombardo (Varese) by four technicians with different specializations, in order to satisfy the growing need of Electric Tools and Motors expressed by the national market.

YEARS 1960 – 1965
The business expands with the first aviation collaborations with “Offcine Meccaniche Giovanni Agusta” on the first American Bell helicopter manufactured by Agusta in Italy. "On Aug. 11, 1952, Domenico Agusta signed an agreement with the American company Bell Aircraft Corporation and undertook the challenge of the future to produce and sell helicopters. On May 22, 1954, the first helicopter built by the Agusta company, an Agusta‑Bell 47G, took of from the Cascina Costa; only two years later, the 100th helicopter was delivered. Helicopter production increased dramatically in the 1960s after signing agreements with US manufacturers Sikorsky, Boeing and Hughes Helicopters". The pictures are showing the first Bell 47G and a vintage Bell 47J Ranger advertise.
Our company designs, manufactures and homologates its first aviation product, a small Tachometer Generators MIL-G-26611, MIL-PRF-26611, GEU-7/A (still used on some aircrafts) which were boarded on Bell and Agusta helicopters until today. The pictures are showing the first Tachometer Generator and a vintage drawing.
During the 70s and the 80s the business grows with the collaborations with Agusta company on the A109 programme and on first Bell helicopters manufactured by Agusta under licence. The company was working on airplane and helicopters equipment, especially for the Agusta A109 with its first flight in 1971. In the first picture: A prototype Agusta A109 Hirundo hovering in ground effect, 4 August 1971 at its Cascina Costa plant, near the Aeroporto di Milano-Malpensa, northwest of Milan, Italy, Agusta test pilot Ottorino Lancia made the first flight of the prototype Agusta A109 Hirundo, serial number 7101. In the second picture a 1973 A109 Hirundo advertise.
The company has grown with the management’s generational change. The new partners join the company owners, maintaining a continuance but also introducing freshness, relaunching the activities with new expertise and new energy. Early in the 1990 some new products, designed and qualified in the 80's were introduced in the company production line as the Circuit Shear Tester and some new Fuel Caps for Aircrafts and also for Motorcycles.
The company starts its experience around the world, opening a partnership with a Product Support Organization and FAA / EASA Repair Station in the U.S.A dedicated to the repair and overhaul of Hydraulic, Electronic, Instrument, and Radio components installed on fxed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft repair to support its American customers.
