Leading partner for our industry in Italy

Tarcento, San Donato Milanese, Brescia (Omav and Hydromec) and Genoa (Paul Wurth) are the main locations of SMS group in Italy, that gather long-lasting expertise and competences in the management of continuing research in science and technology. This keeps the company at the forefront of innovation. Tarcento is our headquarters in Italy, which serves customers in Italy and the Balkans.


The history of SMS group S.p.A. dates back to 1933, when one part of the group was first founded. The strength of the company stems from the several individual groups that merged their years of experience in the sector. And we are a concrete proof that the combination is greater than the sum of its parts, which has resulted in the leading company in the world of metals.

S.I.M.A.C. S.p.A. – SMS Meer

S.I.M.A.C. S.p.A. was founded in 1969 by a group of entrepreneurs who were operating in the steel industry, with a consistent level of technical and marketing experience.


In 1933, Ferdinando Innocenti set up a company in Milan, Innocenti Società Generale, to produce large-size components for the metallurgical plant and rolling mill industry.


SMS Concast in Italy was born as Continua International Continuous Casting S.p.A. in 1962, with its headquarters in Genoa. In 1987, the collaboration with Concast Standard of Zurich started, and in 1995, the company changed its name to Continua Concast S.p.A.

Paul Wurth Italia

Paul Wurth Italia S.p.A. was founded in 1960, taking over the heritage of Italimpianti.

It was in 2005 that Paul Wurth Italia joined Paul Wurth as a result of the take-over of the blast furnace, cokemaking and direct reduction activities of the former SMS Demag S.p.A.

Fully integrated in the SMS group in 2021, Paul Wurth Italia enriches the group with its plant builder experience and expertise in the design and supply of technological solutions for the primary stage of integrated steelmaking.

Hydromec S.R.L.

Hydromec is a highly successful international player in the field of forging presses and ring rolling machines for steel. Founded in 1980 by Francesco Meschini, along with three other associates, Hydromec entered the market with the innovative design of a closed die forging press attracting new customers who immediately acknowledged the benefits of the press. In addition, Hydromec has long-term expertise in the hot forming sector of brass and aluminum, which helps to strengthen the competitiveness of SMS group in these markets.


Founded in 1952, OMAV has extensive expertise and a solid reputation in the extrusion industry. OMAV and SMS group have been cooperating as strategic business partners in the supply of complete extrusion plants for aluminum since 2011. SMS group’s participation in 2017 underlined the success of this productive partnership and has now resulted in a full takeover. OMAV has been a wholly owned subsidiary of SMS group since the end of September 2020.
