Calamit was founded in 1957 as a small company specialized in the production of small magnetic equipment, magnetic bases for attachement and the magnetization of small permanent magnets. In 1982 Calamit began a steady rise in the market, which took it to the opening, in 1991, of the Calamit Espana branch in Barcelona, and of the Paris branch Aimants Calamit (in April, 2013, it will also open a new German branch in Munich called Calamit Magnete). This has allowed the company to: internationalize its own products, often making them a strategic part of our client’s projects, to offer an extremely professional and capable technical service, to improve logistics by optimizing costs, and to guarantee a stock of materials always ready for immediate delivery.
Calamit is a company that, ever since 1957, has been constantly growing, because its precise acknowledgement about how to earn, year after year, the trust of a selected and dedicated clientele, not only by ensuring quality and competitive prices, but also by providing innovative technical solutions. In this spirit the Barcelona branch opened in 1991, and the Paris branch in 1999, quickly gaining the trust of a satisfied European clientele.
Calamit was founded in December, 1957 thanks to a little big idea of Carlo Ciambella who, fascinated by the potential of permanent magnets, discovered the possibility to increase their strength as well as the possibilities of use.
In a small laboratory in Milan he created his first patented inventions: the Calamit magnetic clinchers. Since then Calamit has been constantly growing, in compliance with rules and nature.
The certainties offered by Calamit today are:
- Competitive prices
- Guaranteed quality
- Highly qualified personnel
- Delivery certainty
Today Calamit has two production facilities, one of which is dedicated to the transformation and sale of permanent magnets, while the other is used for the exclusive production of Magnetic Separators and Magnetic Bases for a total covered surface of 5.600 m2, within an area of 10.000 m2 facing the Tangenziale Est.
In 1991 Calamit opened its first branch in Barcelona, which quickly captured an important slice of the market, and in 1999 the Paris branch opened, with the same impressive results in a brief time.
The choice of a permanent magnet supplier is fundamental for the end quality of a product.
A bad quality magnet can render useless thousand of precautions that are taken into consideration during the initial stages of any project with such components (permanent magnet or magnetic separator). The appropriate experience and technical organization are needed in order to guarantee final results. Most important is the experience of a company like Calamit, which has always been able to offer the most advanced technical solutions in the sector, while maintaining the lowest prices.
