A constant growth
Lampre Italy was established in 1975 in Usmate Velate, in Lombardy, the economic heart of Italy, where Romeo Mario Galbusera, still President, together with his uncle Attilio Magni, started his company in an area known for its strong presence of family businesses. Despite a beginning characterized by economic hardships, winning strategic choices enabled the company’s immediate positioning into the niche high quality vinyl coated steel market . Soon a second laminating line was added, followed, in 1989, by the foundation of Lampre Portuguesa. In the same year Lamital service center, specialized in the cutting and marketing of steel products, was opened. In the early 1990s Lampre enters the business of rolled coated steel, thus installing the third coating line followed, in 1997, by Lamfer, the new service center. In the same period the important phase of the internationalization of Lampre begins; a phase that culminates in 2009 with the beginning of the activity of Lampre USA, hub of distribution for the North America, followed in 2010 by Lampre Turçelik services center, located in Istanbul. In 2012 the new green field investment of Lampre Polska will be operative with a production facility and service center in Kutno that will strengthen the presence of Lampre in the European market.
