Our History

Founded in Correggio, Italy in 1959 by two partners, Terzino Spaggiari and Alberto Alberti.

During a strong period of growth and expansion within the plastic moulding industry, SPAL initially specialised in the design and production of plastic components.

And so our history continues. By the 1970s, production was expanded and saw the manufacture of electric fans, both axial and centrifugal aimed at the automotive industry. This led to the installation of the first production lines to meet fast-growing demand.





The Story Continues...
