I am particularly proud to introduce you to the ICMA world through the pages of this Website even if I realize that nothing can ever replace a real visit to our factories and the knowledge and experience of our team.
First of all I want to remember that ICMA enjoys a long and consolidated experience in the mechanical engineering industry that dates back to its foundation in 1945. At that time ICMA was manufacturing machines for the wood industry, production then combined with that of high precision machine tools where it served blue chip customers like Ferrari.
The production of plastics machinery begins in late sixties, a period in which the company became, in a few years and thanks to its solid mechanical background, a recognized and highly rated player.
Over time, specialization, machines design, attention to after-sales services and a flexible and professional approach have become the key milestones of the company's business model.
Today ICMA has developed the right size to serve a global and demanding clientele, also with the qualified support of a proven network of representatives which contributes to ICMA’s local presence and success. Additionally ICMA offers other key ingredients, starting from a people based and flexible approach to state-of-the art production platform, metallurgical, mechanical and process engineering capabilities and service offer. All these elements combined with more than 75 years of accumulated experience of engineering and machine production, make ICMA unique and the ideal partner to work with.
Over the years we have also decided to join some international certifications such as ISO 9001 for quality procedures and ECOVADIS rating (SILVER) for sustainability.
To stress all our commitment to serve the market at best I also want to mention one of our most recent investments: the new and enhanced Development Center where several extrusion lines are installed to give customers the possibility to validate a wide range of formulation and products, even for initial projects that are strategic for a company.
Now I leave you to the pages of our website that I hope may create curiosity or ideas and the desire for a visit at our manufacturing plants to know or perhaps already to discuss your development projects. I'm sure that ICMA will prove to be a strategic partner for the future of your company.

The range of co-rotating twin-screw extruders is very complete and covers all types of compounded and master batch products.
ICMA specializes in supplying turn-key solutions during many years as a result of its engineering capabilities.
The twin-screw co-rotating extruder is presently the highest performing machinery available in the market to meet the growing requirements of recycling processes, enabling the GREEN transition at the highest level.
We successfully pioneered, FIRST IN THE WORLD, the process technology for producing a thermoformable sheet for automotive interior trims made of virgin or recycled polypropylene and wood flour.
The Direct Extrusion allows to combine in one step the compounding and the extrusion phases, delivering significant great advantages including energy savings.
Lab scale units for Compounding or Extrusion systems at the highest standard represent key products ICMA can offer.
