The story of OMAC embraces three generations and brings with it a testimony of courage, dedication and ability to adapt to the extreme competitiveness of international markets.
Danilo Paccagnella opens a workshop for repairing sewing and shoemaking machinery in Vigonovo, a town in the province of Venice.
The company's headquarters are transferred to Noventa Padovana (Pd), near the Riviera del Brenta. The production of the first machine for the leather industry takes place.
OMAC obtains the exclusive mandate to sell Durkopp Adler sewing machines on Italian territory. The sale and repair of sewing machines becomes the company's main business.
Alberto Paccagnella joins his father in the direction of the company. As his son dedicates himself to the expansion of sales to new markets, Danilo focuses on innovation and technological research, patenting new leather processing machinery.
The Paccagnella family operates a sharp change of course in commercial strategies: it renounces the sale of the Durkopp Adler sewing machines and focuses on the production of leather goods manufacturing machines. The first series production of leather goods is started.
Alberto Paccagnella's wife, Rita Pra, joins the company to coordinate the commercial expansion to foreign markets. The first leather goods export in India and China begins and a network of global retailers is set up.
The headquarters are transferred to Padua, in a 7000 square meters space, which includes a production area of more than 3500 square meters, a department dedicated to the design and development of machinery, the management office and the administrative and commercial staff.
Foreign expansion continues: OMAC machinery reaches Africa, America, Australia and the Far East.
OMAC opens a subsidiary in Noida, India, one of the company's strategic markets. Today, the company owns three branch offices located in several Indian cities.
After graduating in Business Economics, Cristiano Paccagnella helps his father in the commercial direction of the company. OMAC now exports 70% of its machines to 70 countries around the world.
The Company extends the sales basin to the entire area of Latin America and invests constantly in the creation of automatic production lines and high-tech modular machines for leather processing and other materials in a number of industrial sectors. In the spring of 2017 it inaugurates a new showroom at Scandicci (Fi).
