In 1949 Maurizio Rossi and Luigi Cristina founded the company Officina Meccanica Sestese in Arona (Northern Italy). In those difficult post-war years, the Company undertook the important task of producing equipment and accessories for the brick and tile industry.
OMS’ production soon asserted itself on the market so much that after a few years it became necessary to change premises. So, in 1958 a new plant was inaugurated in Arona where it continued to produce technologically advanced kiln equipment.
