On April 9 2021, FIMAC celebrates a milestone that we’re particularly proud of: we turn 100 today!

FIMAC was officially founded on April 9 1921 and since then we have come a long way.


We started as a small company based in Milan, producing compressed air machines. In fact, FIMAC’s name comes from the acronym for Fabbrica italiana macchine aria compressa, although in its early days it was called "FITAC", Fabbrica italiana trapani aria compressa.

Since the 1960s, we expanded to air turbines and hydraulic equipment, grew in size and eventually moved to the suburbs, in Senago, in the 1980s.

FIMAC has participated in several high-profile military programs, including the F104, the Panavia Tornado and the Eurofighter Typhoon. In the past few years, we have expanded to civilian commercial market, focusing on environmental control systems.

We are a family-owned business, owned and managed by the same family for four generations (and with the fifth generation now involved).

As of today, we are still expanding our business. The Covid-19 pandemic, that has unfortunately hit so many businesses across the world, hasn’t stopped FIMAC from finding new customers and developing new programs, and this is something that makes us feel both proud and grateful. A special thanks to all the FIMAC partners and employees who have made this possible!
