“Realizzazioni Artigiane Articoli Speciali Meccanici” (artisan products special mechanical items) – RAASM– is the definition that founder Giovanni Menon, now Managing Director, bestowed on the company in 1975, with the aim of producing equipment for the automotive market that would boast the effectiveness of artisan processing and the care of an art work. Already in the 80s though, RAASM started to develop fluid management equipment, its current core business and a vocation well described by the pay-off: “ADVANCED FLUID MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS”.
Working with RAASM means sharing those fundamental points that have carried us forward for more than 40 years: creating high-quality, long-lasting products and valuing the relationship with the customer thanks to reciprocal listening and respect.
The quality of a brand is the combination of its use of cutting-edge technology, certified performance and design that aims to continually meet market demands. But for RAASM quality it also means privileging listening, closeness and availability with internal and external customers and collaborators. It is in this way that RAASM has become an international reference point in terms of its fluid management technologies. Our technicians and engineers are at the heart of the innovation, the DNA of our company, the forge where new ideas come to life and are transformed into high-quality products.
Our mission is to be an international leader in the field of fluid management, offering a wide range of technologically advanced equipment and striving to achieve the best possible quality by paying close attention to every detail. All this, while adopting, with determination and confidence, a sustainability and environmental protection policy regarding both our industrial production and management of the related services.
The RAASM story dates all the way back to 1975, when entrepreneur Giovanni Menon created a company for the production of “artisan-produced technical mechanical items” (RAASM, Realizzazioni Artigiane Articoli Speciali Meccanici). In a short space of time, RAASM went from being a small artisan company to a main player in the industry, becoming a leader in the development of equipment for the management and handling of fluids.
In 2015, RAASM celebrated an important milestone: 40 years of business. This was a period in which the company has stood out for the quality, innovation, and technical and commercial reliability of its services and products. Quality, innovation and support: three fundamental points without which RAASM would not have come this far.

The logo chosen to represent RAASM consists of an eagle with its wings spread placed over an anvil. The intuition is from the current Managing Director, Giovanni Menon, who sought for a symbol that at the same time expressed energy and elegance. In fact, the visual code of anvil defines the instrument with which an artist models untameable steel, while the eagle is a metaphor for strength and grace. The logo, initially white and black, was injected with colour over the years, with green, yellow and red tones that have come to characterise RAASM, enriched with the pay-off “ADVANCED FLUID MANAGEMENT SOLUTIONS”.
