Pietro and Rosina Camerra, owners of the carpentry workshop that hosted Sinico’s first headquarters. Born before 1900, Pietro Camerra, a veteran of the two world wars, together with his wife Rosina, who passed away just a few years ago at almost 100 years of age, gave the first headquarters both space and encouragement, two critically essential ingredients in the company’s early days.
Where it all begins
Speed combined with reliability
The history of Sinico
Where it all began way back in 1962
Our operating philosophy is born from the experience of the company’s founder, Egidio Sinico. This same philosophy continues to inspire his adult children, leaving a permanent imprint of devotion to work, product quality and correct market placement. The experience acquired in more than 50 years of business serves as a valuable guide on how to address an increasingly variable and flexible market.
A team of experts always on the lookout for innovative solutions and a cutting-edge machine shop: this is the environment in which we have forever nurtured our passion for the development of technologically advanced works, tailored to suit the most demanding needs.
Igino Camerra, son of Pietro and Rosina, is one of the company’s founding partners. Born in 1933, a great enthusiast and keen observer of mechanical evolution, he was always very dedicated to producing the precision parts making up the machine.
He is pictured here on a mountain hike with his two grandsons, Alessandro and Giancarlo Sinico, a few years after the company was established. Alessandro is the current owner of the company, wholly run by the family.
The other two founding partners of Sinico, on the left, Egidio Sinico, born in 1931, and on the right, Bortolo Groppo, born in 1938. Egidio Sinico mainly dealt with the company’s management, while Bortolo Groppo was responsible for machine finalisation and testing with the client and at their premises. In the middle, Domenico Bosa, also part of the family and with a long background in mechanical engineering. He often visited the company to give advice, and above all, great encouragement. Egidio Sinico, in 1994, a few years after his two partners had retired, left the company to his sons Alessandro and Giancarlo.
Alessandro Sinico, born in 1960, has now been working in the company for thirty years. For over 10 years he has had the opportunity to accumulate experience, in the most practical sense of the word, through a path that has taken him through every single production department, including cleaning. For more than 20 years, he has been managing director of the company, assisted by a splendid team of collaborators, capable of making this activity and life experience exciting.
He is pictured here taking an early morning stroll along one of the magnificent dirt roads at the foot of Romeo and Juliet’s castles. He has written this story with a feeling of immense gratitude towards his collaborators now and then, and with equal gratitude towards those customers who have made Sinico their first choice over the last half century.
60 years of innovation
In the second half of the 1970s, both the ‘TC’ and ‘TR’ models continued their evolution. The TC model is fully automated and completed with an automatic bar loader that allows the operator to load a complete bundle while minimising bar handling.
In December 2017, the first TOP1100 CNC plus was born, soon to become Sinico’s tip product.
