 OCMI is worldwide leading supplier of complete production lines to manufacture tubular glass containers for pharmaceutical and cosmetic use (ampoules, vials, droppers, dental cartridges).

OCMI headquarters are located in Milan (Italy) but the production of equipments for tubular glass processing is also held in France with Moderne Mecanique factory (in Chelles) and in India with OCMI India (in Ahmenabad). Representative office was recently opened in Shanghai (China).

A second division of OCMI is dedicated to the supply of glass forming and processing machines for production of tableware articles: main products are sealing/stretching machines for stemware, presses and press-blow machines.

Thanks to the partnership with Italian company MT Forni Industriali, OCMI can supply complete turn-key factories for the production of technical glass items like high voltage insulators and glass bricks.




In 1998 OCMI acquired the majority holding in MODERNE MECANIQUE, with SCHOTT retaining 26% of company stock.

In 1972 Moderne Mecanique started to market the MM30 and, at the same time, began work on the development of an automatic line to complete the automation of the production process.

In 1980 MODERNE MECANIQUE was acquired by the SCHOTT Group, with its vast range of activities in the glass industry. The new owners transferred production to the CHELLES complex and introduced new, CNC machine tool into the process.

Manufacturing techniques were developed, with production of the OPTISTEM and OPTICUT accessory units starting in 1989.

In 2007 OCMI acquired the remaining stock of MODERNE MECANIQUE from SCHOTT.
