Ugo Taglier, from Vicenza in Northern Italy, formed Officine Meccaniche ANI back in 1962, to produce components and accessories for compressed air systems. This bold and far-sighted decision was soon to be rewarded. By the early 1970s, the brilliant businessman had already patented his first quick coupler, still a best seller today, marking the start of a long series of successful innovations. The ANI story revolves around the Taglier family who, from generation to generation, have expanded the business by investing in advanced technology, constantly developing new products and solutions and insisting on the highest levels of quality and performance to establish the company as an international market leader.
ANI has been certified to ISO 9001 since 1996. Today the company is committed to even greater automation and is continuously improving the technology of its plant and equipment. Production is organised into application areas in order to follow market trends and respond to the needs of the widest possible range of customers, from wholesalers to large distribution chains. ANI’s sophisticated components and accessories are all designed and manufactured in-house. Every single item is subjected to rigorous testing according to the strictest safety standards. Products are destined principally for the automotive repair, vehicle bodywork, industrial and DIY sectors. All customers are guaranteed impeccable service and all-round consulting to help improve their professional standards.
Over 3,000 articles. More than 2,000,000 pieces produced every year for over 50 years these include: patented solutions like a quick coupler with flow regulator and pressure release system, and a professional paint spray gun with air heating system; exclusive innovations like a quick coupling digital pressure gauge, a sealant applicator with telescopic piston and pressure release system, and high performance spray guns; conventional accessories like industrial couplers and fittings, a vast range of blow guns, a line of sealant applicators to suit all needs, filters and pressure regulators for compressed air systems, and a constant flow of new accessories for many different fields of application.
