Year of company foundation.
The Landgraf company was founded on September 12, 1962 by Eng. Fernando Landgraf.
As a young engineer with a German father and an Italian mother, Fernando Landgraf gained working experience between Italy and Germany but decided to set the headquarters of his company, “Landgraf S.p.A”, in Milan. Initially, the first factory was located in Via Delle Bande Nere and later it was moved to the historical site in Via Negrotto.
The company was born even before the “signing of the foundation”, and found its roots in the previous years, in the close collaboration between the brilliant mind of Eng. Landgraf and the experience of the German Eng. Calow, founder of the homonymous company, as well as historical manufacturer of processing plants for steel mills.
Landgraf joins SMS Group.
In 1998 Mr. Landgraf decided to become part of the German multinational group SMS, in order to expand the markets for the future of the company.
The “Landgraf S.p.A.” becomes the “SMS Eumuco S.p.A. Landgraf division“.
Subsequently, Eng. Massimo Santambrogio passed from the technical leadership of the company to the leadership of the entire Italian division of SMS Eumuco S.p.A. In the meantime, Ing. Landgraf, due to his advanced age, continues to work within the company as a consultant.
In these years the company underwent a restructuring, with the transfer to a modern and efficient headquarters in Via Achille Grandi in Mazzo di Rho, Fiera Milano area.

In this period, the even closer collaboration between Mr. Landgraf and Mr. Santambrogio and the entry in the company of Mr. Santambrogio’s two sons, Mattia and Nicolò, lead to the birth of a series of innovative machines and to a further expansion of the company.
