1974 – today: over 4 decades of success
ASSEMBLAD was established by the two owners/founders, Mr. Giancarlo Ghezzi and Mr. Silvio Mughini, who, after years of experience with large Corporations, decided to put up a electronic development and manufacturing company supplying oem customers in different industries like electro-medical, railway and naval industry.
ASSEMBLAD made a U-turn by entering directly the automotive aftermarket industry with own quality equipment of original design. The first partial flow opacimeter OPA-189 was then designed and manufactured by ASSEMBLAD. A few years later the first infrared gas analyser, the Infragas-291, was also developed. Both the opacimeter and the gas analyser were qualified for statutory vehicle inspections and approved by the Italian Ministry of Transportation.
More models and evolutions followed, through the years, when two major new projects started: the OPA-KING smoke bench and the INFRA-QUEEN infra-red gas bench. That was a milestone: a complete new generation of measuring benches of unique compactness, ideal both for internal use and for oem supply as ASSEMBLAD is currently doing.
Another milestone for ASSEMBLAD, was the acquisition by GRUPPO ALTEA, an industrial group of companies all operating in the automotive aftermarket industry. The synergy generated by the acquisition permitted an additional range of equipment of own make, like brake testers and head light testers, to be added to the company catalog thus making ASSEMBLAD now capable of providing the industry with whatever test equipment required for vehicle inspection: all 100% designed and manufactured in house, obviously.
Test line equipment from Italy to the whole world: this is what ASSEMBLAD is today.
