Who we are and our history

Since 1988, we have been designing, certifying, manufacturing, and marketing products intended for the precast lining of tunnels built with the mechanized excavation system using TBM.

We specialize in the development of hydrophilic gaskets and a wide range of accessories for the connection, lifting and anchoring system for tunnel construction using the TBM system.

We carry out all the processing stages in-house to ensure greater control and quality.

We are the only Italian company to guarantee coverage of the entire cycle for the supply of gaskets and a wide range of accessories. In addition, we provide technical support in product selection, assistance during site start-up and monitoring of product behavior during site commissioning. This benefits our customers who can, thus, rely on and turn to us as a complete  point of reference, during every stage of the process.

We collaborate with leading centers of excellence in technology transfer and several university centers. We use the mathematical simulation of MSc Marc software, to study and design highly innovative, customized and patented products.

Not only are we an ISO 9001 certified company for the quality system and respond optimally to STUVA recommendations, but we have also developed an internal process and product specific quality procedure for the large works sector.

We are the first Italian company to design and manufacture a gasket that is integrated with the formwork during casting and that engages with the concrete in an immovable manner. The FAMA UG012A integrated gasket was used for the first time in Italy in Scilla in the Terna tunnel (Calabria), with full success.

The FAMA UG019A gasket was also used in the Sparvo tunnel (Bologna-Florence highway link), where the world’s largest mechanical tunnel boring machine with TBM-EPM technology operated.

The first tunnel excavated under the Himalayas (Kishanganga project) was built with the FAMA Superconnector.

Since 1995, more than 85 tunnels worldwide have been built and are under construction using our products.
