item is an international company based in Solingen, Germany, and has been pioneering the development of industrial building kit systems since 1976. Based on a wide range of aluminium profiles and coordinated fasteners, we develop and distribute components and systems for constructing machinery, factory equipment and plant facilities. Our product range continues to grow, year on year, as more and more modular additions are incorporated, many of which have been developed in close collaboration with our customers. It is a building kit principle with endless possibilities. This principle has travelled all around the world – but item is where it started.
