Telco is the ideal partner for designing and developing the most suitable solutions for digitization of production spaces.

The company, originally called SETI, was founded in Bergamo in 1961 as an artisan workshop. In 1965 SETI became the current Telco srl and moved its headquarters to Grassobbio (BG).

From the very beginning the company has concentrated on activities within the sector of Industrial and Process Automation, which range from design to the construction of equipment with power electromechanics for both distribution and control of electrical machines, with a focus on remote control and automation.

Over the years, technical development within the company coincided with the development of techniques and products for industrial automation, and ultimately the development of advanced plant management systems.
