Our History so far


NUOVA STAR S.P.A. was constituted on 22/11/1967 with the object of designing, building and marketing hinges for household appliances and associated small metal components. The current Company was converted from STAR (acronyms for Artisan Stamping), which had been founded in May 1946. The latter's object was the design and construction of stamping and cutting dies for small metal components.

In 1957, at the request of a Client, the first tool for producing a hinge was built and production was launched. Within a few years, the demand for hinges for household appliances had grown to such an extent that the current Company had to be constituted with the existing facilities.
The Company has its own components catalogue which enables it to customise product in addition to manufacturing to client drawings. Nuova Star holds patents and registered models for its own use, covering both products and assembling techniques. Nuova Star is represented world-wide through a network of agencies.
