History and achievements

General Medical Merate S.p.A. (GMM) from 1952 has evolved in over 70 years from a craft company dedicated to maintenance and repair to a leader in its own right in the radiological equipment field.
Since the late ‘60s GMM has been dedicated exclusively to the design and production of more complex radiological diagnostic systems.
In 1987 the entry into the corporation of new members, in particular Mr Massimo Sordi as Chairman, marked the beginning of a new and more important business development.
Today GMM Group is composed of different companies focused on the radiological field.
Thanks to the significant human resources’ attention and the continuous technological improvement, GMM Group has collected over 70 years of experience, successfully competing with national and international companies worldwide.
