Founded in 1962, the company began in Milan, Italy. Its initial focus was on the progressive expansion of its product lines and distribution networks. By the late 70s, it was ready to expand internationally, and began by entering the Swiss market. A number of years later, in 1995, it acquired auto parts distributor Elit Group, which enabled it to enter the markets of Eastern Europe, specifically the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Ukraine. This marked the beginning of a significant growth period.
