E.T.E.M.® was established in Pavia in 1980, as a company operating almost exclusively in the military sector, specialized in the manufacturing of ballistic guard booths and guard towers for the armed military surveillance. In the following years, E.T.E.M.® structures have become synonymous of high-security, quality and reliability so that, then as now, E.T.E.M.® structures are present in most of the military installations around Italy and in many foreign military garrisons.
Towards the late '80s, when there has been a greater sensitivity with regard to quality assurance of the products and their compliance with national and international safety standards, E.T.E.M.® gave a stronger impetus to its spirit of innovation by improving even more its structures, up to the creation of unique products, with the highest standards of quality and safety, manufactured and certified in compliance with the most restrictive international security regulations and standards. E.T.E.M.® began in these years to establish itself as a leading company in military passive defence, a sector in which the concept of "security" finds its highest expression and where only excellent companies can operate.
In the ‘90s, because of the changes of the international scenario, when civilian and industrial sites also have been identified as “high-risk” sites, E.T.E.M.®, thanks to its strong experience in the military sector, has made a further evolution in its history, extending its activity to industrial, petrochemical and civilian sectors.
Today E.T.E.M.® works all around the world, in the military, industrial and civilian sectors, and it is the only company in Italy specialized in the manufacturing of certified blast & ballistic security structures for critical infrastructures protection.
