Established in 1976 in Solingen, Germany item Industrietechnik GmbH set itself a prime goal- to reduce the cost of building machines and standardizing components. The standard values which item defined are now accepted worldwide as an industry standard.

Our History

After item Industrietechnik GmbH became a well-established company with comprehensive coverage in the European market, Item decided to expand into the United States. The first phase of Item becoming established the United States was in 1996 when the owners of our first distributor MB Kit Systems dba Item North America moved from Solingen, Germany to Akron, Ohio to start distributing Item products in America. In 2007 the American headquarters, Item America LLC, was established when Item decided to expand their distribution system in the United States and focus on gaining more distribution partners.


Today Item’s goal of expanding it’s distribution system in America has been realized. Our first distributor MB Kit Systems dba Item North America worked to build the Item brand name in the U.S. and is still a key distributor with marketing our product. Item America LLC has several distribution partners in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Latin America. Item is a wholly owned subsidiary of the famous German machine building company Item Industrietechnik GmbH. We are known for our high level of innovation and outstanding design providing users with a broad spectrum of services and products. Item America has a decentralized sales structure with local sales and service centers providing customers with a full range of services across North America.
