INTERMOT was founded in 1985, and since the beginning of its history, the main activity is the planning, the production and the distribution of Radial Piston Hydraulic Motors, with their distinguishable “star” design. At the end of 80s, the company suffered a financial crisis, due to the increasing competitiveness on the markets and to some technical and qualitative problems on the products. INTERMOT referred to SAI for a partnership, and SAI operates with a financial support and its technological know-how, that enable INTERMOT to make safe itself and restore for the next years. In 1991, INTERMOT made the first step toward the creation of a brand that today is one of the most important in the Hydraulic Motors sector, especially for the plastic injection machines. Thanks to the establishment of a production site in China, INTERMOT is the first company to make steps to the market internationalization process. Indeed, the company advanced the tendency of the move to East amongst the main manufacturers of equipment for the plastic injection mold machines. The history of the company and the development of the injection machines market follow the same ways. Furthermore, the acquisition of new and even more important and international references in the key markets, coincides to a coherent and constant improvement of the products range. At the same time, INTERMOT developed also great collaborations with production and distribution entities in the main hydraulic markets, and the company also builds cooperation for the customization of the motors, following the customers’ requirements.
Since 2010, INTERMOT development got great advantages from the company reorganization: INTERMOT fully entered in SAI Hydraulic Motors Group. Thanks you the research center, one of the most important entities in Europe for its capability, expertise and speed of development, INTERMOT product range was deeply analyzed. The planning was revisited, and the products benefited many technological and process changes, that transformed the range in one of the widest and most performing on the market. Thanks to the experience of the Group, and thanks to the eight production sites located in America, Europe and Asia, the Group produces motors that are featured by unique quality standards, with speed and excellent lead time, due to the geographical closeness to the clients. INTERMOT has also rationalized its logistical and distributive factors, for a more efficient market coverage, thanks to the capabilities of the Group, that can rely on a capillary technical and productive delocalization in every market. All the companies of SAI Group have given a crucial contribution to the development of INTERMOT, and today they can locally support INTERMOT products and clients, with a very high service standard. Thanks to the products and process development, coming from the effective entry in the SAI Group, today INTERMOT is a successful brand with technological and commercial competences, that enable the company to be a strategic partner for important international entities, in many different industrial sectors. Marine machines and equipment, Oil & Gas sector – both off-shore and on-shore -, mining sector: these are only instances of sectors where INTERMOT brand is guarantee of quality and reliability.
