CIA WELDING OVENS
Our history began in 1959. After teaching welding for 7 years, Mr Giancarlo Medea designed and manufactured a new line of Quivers, Rod and Flux Ovens for keeping and drying welding electrodes and flux.
His new Company was started with other shareholders, and was named FIMEA, based in Monza (Italy). They began to manufacture and sell Welding Ovens. After some years, Mr Medea left the Company and started a newco by himself – CIA Italiana Srl (Costruzione Impianti Apparecchiature inerenti la saldatura) based in Brugherio. In 1998 the American Company Mathey Dearman from Tulsa, Oklahoma bought CIA Italiana Srl and changed its name to CIA Mathey Italiana Srl. 15 years after that in 2013 the Company is sold to two gentlemen who have other business interests in Italy and in United Kingdom – from this sale – CIA Ovens Ltd was born. Based in Manchester (UK) it took over the business, Customers, Suppliers, Technical Files, Drawings. In 2019 CIA Ovens became a brand within the Industrial & Welding Ovens Limited Company.
