The story of OVEM Srl
The story, the evolution and the progress of our firm
OVEM srl “Officine Venete Elettro Meccaniche” is a machine workshop of precision mechanics established in the mid 1960s by a group of four teachers from various technical schools in the Venetian territory.
“Elettro” because one of the first and most important works was repairing ENEL’s electric contractors flooded in 1966.
In the following years OVEM srl becomes more and more successful in the precision mechanics, meeting requirements of innumerable factories in Porto Marghera-Venice, particularly in the realization and construction of moulds for the refractory sector, and the maintenance of plants in the energy petrochemical sector.
In the early 1990s the first large change was made: the founders decide to retire and transfer the firm to other partners, among which some ex-employees.
The workshop continues its activity for a short period in the old premises in Mestre Venice, and then decides to move to the current premises in Mogliano Veneto-Treviso, investing in the updated CNC machines, boosting the firm’s producing capacity.
The even more important second change was undertaken by OVEM srl in 2008, incorporating B&V Service srl. This company, availing itself of leading partners in the sector, is specialized in services that carry out special machining and treatments. At this point in time, the producing and assembling areas were redoubled.
Presently all our machinery is supported by our technical personnel that, thanks to updated CAD/CAM programming stations, accurately carries out machining of remarkable complexity and precision.
