SPEICH was born as an optical and precision mechanics company. We used our knowledge in the optical field to patent and produce his first clear view screen in 1939. The production of clear view screens remained the main activity of the company for several years until in 1959, following the request of one of the oldest Italian shipyards, we designed the first wiper specially made for the marine environment. Today SPEICH is a company in continuous development and offers wiper solutions for numerous applications, from the marine, to the railway and industrial environment. Thanks to a worldwide sales network we export to over 20 countries and continue to grow our business and the performance of our products.
