HISTORY

Since 1945

Genova, Italy, 1945.
On 14th August 1945, after the end of World War II, Master Giuseppe Messina and representatives of the Italian Navy founded C.A.I.M. (Cooperativa Armamento Imprese Marittime) to employ veterans, sailors and the sons of fallen soldiers.

The first activities of CAIM were demining the Port of Genoa the fitting of all types of vessel.

CAIM developed then a department where nautical instruments, such as compasses, sextants, graphometers, and more, were fabricated and repaired. Another important department was the mechanical ship repair one, with its own workshops located in the Port of Genoa.

In the following years, CAIM got representation for the sale and the distribution of cartographic works issued by United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO), US Navy Hydrographic Office and US Coast & Geodetic Survey. CAIM also represented many national and foreign manufacturers of electromechanical instruments. The Chamber of Commerce of Genoa gave a recognition in the occasion of the 50th year of establishment of the cooperative.

Since then, CAIM has developed and specialized to become, after many years, one of the major British Admiralty International Service Agents and distributor of the most important English and American Institutions of technical publications and nautical regulations.
