I-Tech history began in 1997 when Bruno Bettelli, at the time employee of Electron S.r.l, gave birth to the Colormix division as a branch of the company specialized in design and construction of gravimetric dosing systems for many industrial sectors.
In 2005, as a result of a corporate merger, the Colormix division goes under Tema S.p.a.’s control, a company specialized in design and production of electronic devices for industrial automation. Colormix will remain under Tema’s property until 2009, when Bruno Bettelli created ZS TECH Srl.
ZS TECH S.r.l thus became a new company that, thanks to Colormix brand, specialized in dosage, mixing and colour management fields. In 2010 it already has over 400 tinting systems installed in over 20 countries in different industrial sectors, such as ceramics, paints and inks for the packaging sector.
The operational dynamism and the attitude of the company, always oriented to customer satisfaction, together with a high technological content in every system, have allowed Colormix to quickly acquire trust, credibility and notoriety from its customers. During the following years the Colormix products have succeeded worldwide covering more and more industrial sectors.
On the 07th of November 2012 the changeover of the corporate structure of ZS TECH S.r.l. took place and now, alongside the founder Bruno Bettelli, there are three other partners who have been working in the company for years: Andrea Carandini, Fabio Manfredi and Matteo Neri.
In 2013 the company changed its name to I-TECH S.r.l. and launched a project to expand the product portfolio by creating new lines for new applications and this brought I-Tech to obtain a leading brand reputation the sectors.
Today I-Tech’s products are available in over 40 countries in 5 different industrial sectors with specializations in dosing, grinding, filling, mixing, stirring and transfer of liquid products such as glazes, paints or inks. The company has now also specialized in the creation of artificial vision systems applied in the quality control process after ceramic decoration.
