Assistec was founded in 1998 on the initiative of Antonio and with the collaboration of his wife Aurelia, with the aim of offering customers the experience and expertise acquired in the field of electronic assistance on machine tools. The business grew quickly in the first 10 years, and it was necessary to find more space. Thus, a new facility was purchased, which in addition to the offices, also contained a large spare parts warehouse. 

With the arrival of Dario, Antonio's son and an electronics expert, the electronic support service was consolidated and developed further, so much so that it became necessary to hire three new technicians. An important step in this first decade of activity was the creation of the first electronic and mechanical repair workshop for Fanuc products, which quickly became a leader in Italy for service companies as well as other companies in the sector.
