In 1973, the interaction of six people, each one with their own experience in the mechanical engineering and electrical sectors, gave birth to S.L.I.M. At the beginning the production consisted of neon lamps with glass bulbs and electromechanical switches. Being always sensitive and receptive to technological development, the company increased, already in 1974, its production line with moulding presses for plastics components, which led to a growth of the production activities.
In 1975, S.L.I.M. took part in the trade fair of Milan, and afterwards to other trade fairs abroad: Cologne, Paris, Hannover, Madrid. The following acquisition of VETO company allowed S.L.I.M. to increase the production of switches. With a consolidated commercial network in Italy and abroad and always ready to catch the market innovation, S.L.I.M. started integrating the LED technology in the production of indicators already in 2000.
