100 Years of Mattei

 
1919

Founding

In a small workshop in Via Padova in Milan, the engineer Enea Mattei starts an independent business in his name. In the early days he was involved in machining remnants of wartime material purchased from the state, but soon, to meet the growing demand of the industrial market, he started designing and manufacturing air compressors.
1934

First diesel compressor

Mattei builds his first compressor, a piston machine powered by a diesel engine, a product that achieves success both in Italy and abroad with the first exports. In the following years the company enjoys exponential growth that continues even after Mattei's death in 1955.

1958

First vane compressor

Sandra Mattei, Enea's wife, takes the company's reins and carries on her husband's work. In 1958, Mattei introduces the innovative rotary vane technology, anticipating the market's need for smaller, lighter compressors.
