In 1946, Elmag S.p.A was established in Northern Italy, producing classic woodworking machines. In a short time, the product range grew with the importation of specialty machinery from Germany and an acquisition in the 70’s of Superall, creating the Superfici (or “Surfaces”) Division. This division was solely focused on supplying complete lines and systems for the finishing of wooden parts and components.
In 1995, Superfici Italy acquired Valtorta, a company well known for the production of various finishing application equipment, such as: Roller Coaters, Printing Machines, Spray Robots, Edge Coaters, and Curtain Coaters. With this acquisition, Superfici Italy could now offer a complete range of finishing machinery, thus developing into a specialized supplier of Finishing Equipment.
In 2004, Superfici Italy entered the SCM Group, one of the largest manufacturers of woodworking machinery in the world. With its complete vertical integration, superior manufacturing processes, and huge R&D investments, SCM has helped Superfici Italy grow into one of the worlds more successful finishing machinery companies in the world.
Superfici Italy, selling and servicing the North American market since 1983 through various distribution agreements, decided to have a direct presence in the market. In July 2005, Superfici America, a subsidiary of Superfici Italy, was established, creating what has become the market leader for Automated Finishing and Sanding Systems in North America.
In 2015, the companies 10th anniversary, Superfici America expanded their presence by adding 13,000 additional square feet (totaling nearly 25,000 sq ft) to accommodate a larger Testing and Demonstration Lab, increased Spare Parts Inventory, and more storage and warehouse capabilities for shipping and receiving, as well as to accommodate greater stock of machinery.
