GIMAX was founded in Italy in August 1990 starting with the production of electronic ballasts for fluorescent lamps.
In 1991, tubular lamps were introduced as the first products range for fixed and portable use in industrial environments such as shipyards, construction sites, railway maintenance, temporary plants, etc.
Shock-proof polycarbonate and butyl rubber were chosen as basic components to manufacture tube lighting products and power distribution assemblies.
The physical characteristics of these materials, suitable for heavy use in harsh environments, were very appreciated by the customers thanks to their reliability, safety and quality.
In 1993, GIMAX started with the production of power distribution assemblies in hard butyl rubber enclosures manufactured with its own moulds.
