SIG company profile

SIG has its main factory in Gorla Minore (Varese), Northern Italy, and the head office in Milan. In 1997, thanks to its production international traits, SIG chose the LLOYDS Register Certification.

The company is an important presence in the field of bulk industrial handling and in the sector of snowmobiles for ski facilities; it offers also a huge range of products for cement, steel, chemical and mining sectors and for all the advanced industrial fields, which need materials' conveying.

SIG works directly or through resellers and agents all over the world. Moreover its strategic position in the middle of Europe allows SIG to develop and improve flexibility, efficiency and delivery quickness, that are the main traits of a company, which combines experience and capacity with brilliance and competence.

The existing company was born in Milan-Italy in 1945, on the ruins of an old factory, which manufactured some rubber items and products. The charters members, who were technicians specialised in the execution of industry rubber articles, belonged to the family that is still present in the society.

In '50s and '60s, the company knew a great expansion period, during which it developed its own technologies to manufacture special tubes, industry wheels and other rubber items. The first modern unit, where the new industrial production started, was built in 1968 and it specialised its production on textile and steel carcass rubber conveyor and elevator belts.

SIG was among the first Italian industries to develop a foreign market, at first all around Europe, and then also in Americas, Africa, Asia and Australia. During the '80s and '90s the continuous touch with foreign countries allows SIG to improve its range of production with considerable investments in new technologically advanced manufacturing lines.

In the new millennium, SIG SpA, UNI EN ISO 9001/2000 certified, is the only Italian producer and one of the most qualified world manufacturer in the field of textile and steel rubber conveyor belts for elevators and heavy applications, snowmobile tracks and other technical rubber items.
