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 SLIM took part in the first Milan trade fair, followed by the foreign trade fairs in Cologne, Paris, Hanover, Madrid. The following acquisition of VETO company allowed SLIM to increase the production of switches. With a consolidated commercial network in Italy and abroad and always ready to catch the market innovation, SLIM started integrating the LED technology in the production of indicators already in 2000.

Nowadays we are preparing for future challenges, on the basis of our 45-year-long experience! We are ready to face the challenges of the global market with the same passion that characterized the birth of our company.
