This year marks the 60-year anniversary of Omec, an Italy-based manufacturer of dovetail machinery.

Established in 1964 by owner Giuseppe Tinti, Omec S.r.l. stands as a family manufacturing business nestled among the picturesque Tuscan Hills in the town of Certaldo in Italy. 

Fueled by Tinti's fervor for engineering and supported by a closely-knit, highly specialized team, Omec said it has become synonymous with the design and production of milling machines tailored for creating joints on drawers, boxes, and furniture. This expertise has positioned OMEC as the global icon for the renowned "dovetail joint."

Omec dovetail machines and genuine parts are exclusively imported into the U.S. by Macoser Inc.
