Company History

In 1947, brothers David and Bruno Galletti opened a machine shop specializing in the design and production of machinery prototypes, some of which were used in the concrete industry. In 1957 they designed their first concrete mixer, used in the production of concrete pipes. In 1964 the first planetary mixer was designed, with a skip hoist attached. This became popular, and models P250, P375, P500 were produced, followed soon after by models P750 and P1000, giving a range of capacities from 250 to 1000 liters. These products carried the company through to 1970, when increasing volumes of concrete demanded increased capacities. Thus, the 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 cubic meter models were created.

At the same time, the company realized that smaller models of 10 to 100 liters, which have the same characteristics as larger models, were in demand for lab tests and quality control. These mixers also found uses in specialized products and color pastes.

In 1972 the Company F.lli GALLETTI changed its name to OFFICINE MECCANICHE GALLETTI – O.M.G. SRL., or OMG for short. Società Italiana Costruzione Macchine, S.I.CO.MA is the major manufacturing division of OMG . In 1988, Galletti Iberica was founded, in 2000 SICOMA Zhu-Hai, in 2005 Sicoma North America, while in 2006 a new branch was set up in France, namely “Omg France”. The group growth continued in 2008 with the establishment of the first sales office in Bangalore, India. In 2011, thanks to the market appreciation, SICOMA opened also its first Indian manufacturing unit. In 2016, a new branch was set up in Mohammedia, in Morocco, giving the current configuration to the OMG Group. In 1995, the company obtained ISO 9001 certification, the first mixer manufacturer to do so. In October 2017 it will celebrate its 70th anniversary. Continuous technical advancements have made SICOMA the world market leader in the concrete mixer industry.
