About us

More than fifty year promoting quality and precision

Founded in 1961, Negri Lame is a solid, family-owned industrial reality. An all-Italian success story, the fruit of the experience and entrepreneurial vision of its founder, Agostino Negri, still at the helm of the company today, together with the second and third generations, pursuing every opportunity with passion and determination, and fully in keeping with the principles of tradition and innovation. A continuity in management that is appreciated by the market and, over the years, has led to the development of long-lasting relationships of trust with customers.

“People first” is the guiding principle that inspires the company in its choices and translates, day after day, into a highly respectful attitude towards company employees, and into high standards of credibility, integrity and correctness in the company’s dealings with customers and suppliers.

By combining the expertise and unique competences acquired in years of experience in the sector, Negri Lame is able to propose high quality solutions, both standard and customised, all of them arising from an incessant search for the best materials and increasingly advanced manufacturing techniques, designed to meet the needs of demanding customers most effectively. The strength of the company also lies in its extreme production flexibility, which enables it to supply customised pieces, even in very small production runs.

The incessant growth of the company is the fruit of an intelligent investment plan and a sales policy designed to strengthen the company’s presence abroad. Already operating in Europe, Australia, South Africa, Ukraine and Russia, in fact, the company aims to further expand its business in mature markets and accelerate its growth in the emerging markets.

Negri Lame’s main asset consists of its principles of ethical conduct and maximum transparency in all business dealings, compliance with the commitments undertaken, flexibility, an approach aiming for continuous improvement, and unwavering attention to customer requirements. Such values bear witness to the positive correlation between the culture of the company and its achievements, in an on-going attempt to optimise its products and processes.

The Production Process:
Know-How, Quality and Innovation

Today Negri Lame can boast great expertise in the production of circular cutting tools, which it makes available to its customers as a wide and diversified offer of high quality products and services. From upper and lower blades for scissor cutting or pressure cutting, to cutting units and pneumatic knife holders, the company manufactures and markets about 180,000 products a year, both in Italy and abroad. In particular, with its cutting units, Negri Lame supplies its products to the main OEM machinery manufacturers present on the market.

A result arising from the passion and attention that the company devotes on a daily basis to the continuous improvement of its production processes: from the selection of raw materials guaranteed and certified by the best Italian and international steel mills to a range of heat treatments, conducted internally and externally, to obtain the hardness values requested for optimal knife efficiency. Rounding off the process, continual quality checks are performed during each and every processing stage, from the conformity of the cutting tools to the appropriateness of packaging and shipment modalities.

Between Tradition and Innovation

Its longstanding experience in the manufacture of circular blades, the selection of the best steel, the development of special finishes over the entire knife range, designed to ensure constant quality over time, together with the adoption of technologically advanced manufacturing systems, are the distinctive characteristics of Negri Lame and the foundation of its success.

Company strategy is perfectly in line with its mission: to be recognised, in the home market and the foreign markets alike, as the go-to supplier for the production of high quality circular cutting tools.

The business model adopted by Negri Lame is based on the high degree of flexibility that enables the company to meet customer requests on a timely basis, ensuring compliance with the schedulea agreed upon and effective cost control. Through its personnel, the company handles in-house all relationships with customers in the Italian and foreign markets, according to an approach and a long-term perspective that facilitates the communication and decision making processes, all to the advantage of overall company efficiency.
