The company Industria Meccanica Ligure (IML) SPA was founded in 1903 in Genoa, Italy. Due to the decision to focus on the petrochemical industry, IML moved its factories to larger premises in Recco. Since World War II, IML is known to be one of the first manufacturers in Europe which focused on steel fittings in carbon, alloy and stainless steel. This contributed to the rise in demand and production of stud bolts and nuts.

In 2006, IML founded a new factory which specifically focused on the production of stud bolts. With this new line of production, IML strengthened her ways of manufacturing, service and quality.

As of today, IML owns a modern forge which is set up with advanced equipment. This equipment guarantees the highest capacity and quality of production. Thanks to total traceability and an experienced team of quality control staff, acting in its own laboratory, IML is able to serve her customers worldwide.

The production of fasteners is done according to the ASTM and ASME / ANSI specifications. IML is ISO9001: 2008 & PED approved. The ISO certificate is available here.

In 2016 the decision was made to found a cooperation between IML and Stokvis Trading BV, named IML International Fasteners BV. The company, located in Oosterhout (Noord-Brabant), is an extension of the Italian company and fulfills her responsibilities as manufacturer, stockist and supplier from her new location in the Netherlands. Due to the unique cooperation between both companies, IML International Fasteners is able to supply a wide variety of fasteners to a worldwide audience.
