Simex celebrates three decades of attachment manufacturing

posted by Sunil Newatia on April 17th, 2021
Simex is celebrating 30 years since the attachment manufacturer first started its assembly lines. 

Simex was founded in 1991 in San Giovanni in Persiceto, Italy. Since its creation, Simex has continued to develop new attachments suitable for various fields of application. Today, the company holds dozens of patents applicable to roadworks, infrastructure and utilities, as well as demolition, construction and quarrying.

From its first assembly lines, which allowed the company to tackle the majority of its processing in-house, to the new headquarters in 2003, Simex has continued to grow.  Production facilities have expanded in order to accommodate a wider product range, with an effort to increase quality, production as well as research and development capacity.

With continuous investment and a global vision proudly rooted in its history, the company’s production plant in San Giovanni in Persiceto now covers a total area of 48,000 square metres, with 18,000 square metres of indoor space. 

Although 2020 was a challenging year for manufacturers, Simex increased its investment in facilities and logistics, increased its research and development efforts and focused on developing its human capital. 

Now, 30 years since its creation, Simex boasts a state-of-the-art production department, capable of producing up to 500 units per month during peak demand periods. As well, a large amount of space is dedicated to testing equipment so as to ensure the highest quality standards: every area is reserved for a specific type of product.

At the end of 2019 a spacious indoor logistics area of 7,500 square metres was opened to ensure increased stock capacity and reduce delivery times. The new warehouse is just the latest in a series of facility expansions created at Simex. The company has also established automated vertical warehouses; boring and robotic welding stations to improve the quality of components; and a demo area to allow for testing and ongoing product development. 

The facilities are complemented by Simex’s sales network covering more than 80 countries. The facility will also help to ensure faster delivery time, pre and after sale assistance, as well as for consultancy and installations on the spot by trained staff.

Product range of Simex includes: Rotary Drum Cutters, Cold Milling Planers, Wheel Saw, Screening Buckets
