Birth of S.A.M.P.

1936 Gaetano Maccaferri SAMP

In 1936 Gaetano Maccaferri started out with a small workshop for the production of wire machinery calling his company S.A.M.P. which translates from the Italian as “Company for Precision Metalworking”. The starting production is mainly focused on steel wire drawing machinery, looms for weaving metallic meshes and general mechanical parts. However, since it is difficult to find good quality gears on the market at that time, the young company starts manufacturing its own gears.
