was founded in 1968 starting with the production of copper multi-tubes for instrumentation in the Oil & Gas sector.
In the 70’s its manufacturing capabilities was expanded progressively with new machineries for special cable assemblies, meeting the growing outsourcing needs of the electronic industry and serving international clients such as "IBM, Philips and Honeywell.
In the 80's, Metallurgica Bresciana S.p.A. include in their range of production low voltage cables for the Military Navy, both in the national and international markets. Herefore Metallurgica Bresciana achieved NATO AQAP-4 registration, which is a set of military regulation that grants the company management system. This was very unique for that time.
More and more research efforts were dedicated to studies for using non-toxic insulation materials that are halogen free, have lower gas emission and smoke opacity and prevent flame spreading in case of fire.
In the early 90's, Metallurgica Bresciana see the broadband business opportunity and decide to invest in the newest machinery for the production of fiber optic cables.
In 1993, as a result of a large investment, the construction of the first and only linear electron beam accelerator in Italy became a fact. E-beam irradiation is a process in which the polymer is exposed to a high charge stream of electrons which improves the mechanical and physical properties of the insulating material. This innovation has allowed "Metallurgica Bresciana" to further expand its application range, by the development of cables for the railway sector, such as internal cabling for rolling stock and miniaturized high temperature resistant cables for railway and industrial applications.
In 2011 Metallurgica Bresciana S.p.A. expand its international activities by establishing a new production site in Ma’anshan, China for the production of cables for the local market.
In 2018 Metallurgica Bresciana S.p.A will celebrate its 50th anniversary. We are proud of our past and confident of the future, being the Italian undisputed leader in the field of special cables and fiber optic cables.
