1947

Visottica

Osalco Montalban, descendent of an ancient and noble family, is one of the most daring pilots of the 6th Wing of the Italian Air Force. An accident prevents him from continuing his career but does not weaken his passion for the mechanics.

In 1947 he opens a workshop in the former stables of his palace in Conegliano, a small town not far from Venice. His mechanical equipment counts of three lathes powered by electric motors. Visottica is born and starts supplying components to the eyewear industry.

1968

Visottica

In 1968 Visottica expands its capacity by moving to the current location in the nearby Susegana. Osalco’s son, Rinaldo, begins spending summers among the lathes and studying new applications with his father.

Over the following decades several new patents on spring mechanism are deposited and Visottica widens its  range of products and technologies, launching the production of components obtained by stamping and mechanical reprocessing (temples and wirecores).

1985

Comotec

In 1985 Comotec is founded by Christian Receveur as a worldwide distribution company to market internationally the production of three historical French companies, each one specialized in different components for optical frames: Schevassus, Finasse and Sipal.

In the same year Comotec Far East is established in Hong Kong to supply the growing Asian Market. Comotec starts its first production in the Far East, opening a factory of hinges in the New Territories of Hong Kong.

1993

Visottica

Rinaldo opens a sales company in Hong Kong, Ottica Far East.

Thanks to the increasing importance of the Asian manufacturers the Company grows supplying the new actors. Production doubles at Susegana with the creation of a dedicated Screw Division with a vast park of mechanical milling machines.

           

2003

Visottica

The Chinese production plant Optical Technology Manufacturing Limited is founded.

The goal of becoming a service supplier to local producers pushes Visottica to develop this production unit in China, able to reduce lead times and supply specific products to the market.

2003

Comotec

The Italian group Mazzucchelli 1849, leader of cellulose acetate for spectacle industry, acquires Comotec. Consequently Comotec Italia is closed.

 

2010

Visottica Comotec

To reinforce its market penetration in the Far East, on September 21, 2010 Visottica signs a strategic partnership with the Mazzucchelli Group, acquiring the control of Comotec and its Chinese production facilities.

The revolution in the corporate structure leads to a complete change of the top management and to the introduction of new production processes as well as the use of new materials. The plant can be assimilated to the Italian facilities as its organization, technology and inspection methods are up to European quality standards. Every year the production plants manufacture more than a billion components protected by over 40 patents.

2016

Visottica Comotec

In July 2016 Visottica acquires complete ownership of Comotec, thus consolidating its global leadership in metal components and tailored solutions for the optical sector.

Whilst continuing to invest heavily in its sales network, today Visottica Comotec consolidates its position as a major player at the top of the eyewear sector by combining two work cultures: that of the parent company in Susegana, in north-east Italy, and that of the DongGuan plant, in south China. This continuous exchange of competence and knowhow between the Italian and Chinese locations makes Visottica Comotec manufacturing culture hard to replicate.
