In 1975 Spreafico's founder, Pietro Spreafico, created the company as a workshop specialized in precision machining, repairing and maintenance. Over time the company has undergone a process of constant improvement, expanding at the beginning of the 1990s, with the arrival of the founder's son, Enrico, and the decision to proceed on the path of complex mechanical structure machining and on-site assembly.
From this stemmed the need to move on to a larger building, where it would be possible to install numerical control machines in order to execute faster and more precise productions. The business then started focusing on the construction of special machines, still in the field of mechanical engineering, which was made possible also by the hiring of specialized personnel, such as designers, engineers and technicians. Thus Spreafico has strengthened its experience in the field of technologically advanced machines, suitable to be operated on multiple shifts and requiring very little maintenance.
In 2019, Spreafico Automation became part of the IMA Coffee Hub, a cluster of specialist brands, each providing a key slice of the experience and expertise needed to serve the coffee industry from A to Z.
