//History 2

Over the past few years, LAG S.p.A. has paid close attention to consolidating its customer relations, guaranteeing the highest quality standards and an increasingly flexible and dynamic service, in line with the brand values and history.

  • Passion for Movement

    Passion for Movement! For LAG, this was the year of communication: a restyled image and a new slogan were the first step to renewal, blending history and innovation.

  • Certificazione ISO 14001

    LAG S.p.A. obtained ISO 14001 environmental certification.

  • Chilean pride

    LAG supplied the wheels for the capsule used in the rescue operations for 33 Chilean miners trapped since 5 August (to 14 October), at a depth of around 700 m, in the “San José” mine. The company was very proud to put its products to use, demonstrating the strength and reliability that makes them technically suited to such heavy-duty use. Wheels that ensure excellent resistance to extreme stress and heavy loads.

  • Transfer to San Cesario

    The transfer to San Cesario sul Panaro was completed, moving the Polyurethane department (extending the production area to 25,000 m2) and the registered office in May 2009.

  • Cosea moulds division

    Incorporation of COSEA S.r.l., a company specialised in the design and manufacture of progressive dies, transfer dies and casting moulds for shearing, bending, deep drawing, roughing, masking and all other processes for cold shaping of metal plate.

  • Certification ISO 9001

    LAG S.p.A. obtained ISO 9001 quality certification.

  • New factory

    Most of the production was transferred to the new factory in San Cesario sul Panaro, where the industrial warehouse with around 20,000 sq.m. of covered buildings stands on an area of over 45,000 sq.m. The new site with its leaner lay-out offered clear advantages for production.

  • Lag in the world

    With its highly technological machines and having doubled its production levels, LAG began to export to key international markets; firstly to Northern Europe, then throughout Western Europe, Central and South America, the Far East and the USA. Later it opened a representation office in the United Kingdom, ensuring a stable presence in the country and delivering more effective assistance to local customers.

  • First polyurethane formulation

    The chemical laboratory, run by staff equipped with instrumentation to monitor and develop prepolymer. This allowed LAG to develop its own polyurethane formula to optimise product performance, a unique feature among the company’s main European competitors.

  • The foundation of lag

    LAG S.p.A. (Lavorazione Acciaio e Gomma) was established with the aim of manufacturing wheels and castors for industrial use. In 1968 the company headquarters were opened in a building owned by the company in Via Respighi 150, Modena, which became LAG’s beating heart.
