History of OMS


At the initiative of Maurizio Rossi and Luigi Cristina, in 1949 the Officina Meccanica Sestese was founded in Arona. In those difficult years of post-war and reconstruction, the new company assumes the important task of producing equipment and accessories for kilns for the manufacture of bricks.

First Claw Force for brickwork handling. Marketing on 5 continents.

Acquisition of OMSTRAP – Sandigliano- BIELLA, for fabric production and consumables
The Sestese Mechanical Workshop today is able to offer a complete range of machines and systems for end-of-line packaging. The high reliability of the machines, guaranteed by years of experience and the flexibility of production, allow the Sestese Mechanical Works to meet all market demands, from the simplest strapping machine to the most sophisticated packaging plant.
OMS Australasia  was established in 2016 with the coming together of Live Industrial and OMS S.p.A.. This parternship was designed to provide the Australian and New Zealand market with a direct line to a company that specialises in stand-alone and integrated end-of-line packaging systems and solutions including strapping, stretch and hooding equipment and related consumables.
