For over 50 years, we’ve specialised in crafting iron and stainless steel chains ranging from 1.30 to 3.90 mm in diameter. To date, we are the largest Italian producers of small chains.


Our commitment to sourcing materials and processing from local suppliers ensures a production cycle that delivers chains with declared and guaranteed dimensions, from the first link to the last.


We offer customisable options for all our chains, allowing you to choose the link size, finish, and packaging to suit your specific needs and applications.
