Established in 2008 from a previous co-operative company, Dieci Electric Srl has two production sites, one in the province of Catania and the other in Brescia, and a large customer base consisting mainly of builders, installers and retailers. The company’s strength lies in integrated solutions with management software, the production of special switchboards, remote monitoring and support during plant start-up.
