Società Italiana Apparecchi Scientifici
The S.I.A.S S.p.A. Company (Italian Scientific Apparatus Company) was officially founded in 1971. The creation of SIAS S.p.A originated from a company that Libero Bonetti established in 1956.
Libero Bonetti started his business project and created mechanical instruments that were used for clinical medical examinations and medical research activities. These instruments were used by various Italian Universities, the Italian Air Force, the British Royal Air Force and by the United States Navy. Furthermore, the company also specialised in the production of research equipment for marine geology (the principle buyers of this equipment were Italian Geological universities, namely, Bologna, Trieste and Perugia).
