Created to grow

In 1970, Adriano Colombo and Enzo Sartorio saw an opportunity in the market for the requirement of industrial coils and established TE-CAV, primarily to serve solenoid valve manufacturers. 

The company soon became a point of reference in the sector and, thanks to generous investments in research, capital equipment and personnel, it garnered acclaim and built its reputation in the market. Today ATAM is a private company with a youthful and motivated management team that is constantly focused on the internationalisation of a major Italian business.
