The History

AQM srl was established in 1982 through the dedication of a group of companies which decided to create a consortium to assist them all with high-profile facilities, services and expertise, while minimising costs to be borne by each individual company.

Soon this Service Centre gained support from certain local institutions (the Chamber of Commerce and the Provincial Council of Brescia) as well as trade associations, since it was pursuing the general interest by promoting a culture of enterprise and quality.

Over time, in line with its non-profit status and corporate identity, AQM has constantly reinvested its operating income in facilities, staff training, the creation of new services and the improvement of the existing ones, all this with the objective of effectively meeting the needs of a constantly evolving market, following fast-paced technological growth and complying with European Community standards and directives.

The Business Model

AQM is a non-profit company founded with the specific purpose of assisting shareholders and local companies in the need for improvement that require Laboratory Tests, Consultancy and Training.

The fundamental objective is to provide a Technical Service of Excellence, at the lowest cost to the user, guaranteeing impartiality and reliability.

The second objective concerns the balanced budget; the business model applied provides that the profit will not be distributed to the 187 shareholders but invested in services with high added value, for the development of processes and products.

The achievement of a substantial profit would mean having applied significantly higher costs causing damage of the customers’ economy; any profit is instead invested for the acquisition of material assets and for personnel in order to improve the quality of service.

The Strategy

The Real Added Value of the Company is not only in its advanced Technical Equipment, in the appreciable architectural infrastructures or in its economic financial assets, but fundamentally in the professional skills and commitment of its personnel, increasingly oriented towards better efficiency and development.

The Strategy that has been successful over the years has been to be able to anticipate and identify the needs of shareholders and the territory, providing the necessary skills for the search of solutions to organizational, technological and industrial needs, activating where necessary synergies with other research centers and universities to promote the competitive and technological development of local businesses in a concrete and effective manner.

Thanks to careful and prudent governance, solid internal skills, reputation, a broader customer portfolio, the ability to network and a motivated and well-led organization, today AQM is a primary technical reference center for the local, national and international market.
