Founded in Pizzighettone (Cremona,Italy) in 1929 , SASAC (Artificial Silk Anonimus Company of Cremona), as it was originally known, was an Italian-Dutch fibre company. At the end of 1930s, it became part of the Pirelli Group, wich transformed it from a textile producer to a company specialized in high tenacity rayon cord for industrial use. In 1974 the company changed denomination to its current name “Società Industriale Cremonese Sicrem Spa” and with a workforce over 1500 people was one of the most important employers in the Cremona region. After experiencing several changes in ownerhip (IVG Colbachini, Radici Group) and the shutdown of the rayon yarn production and the dismissal of 400 employes during a restructuring process in 2002, Sicrem was acquired in 2007 by the Austrian Glanzstoff Group, belonging to the CAG holding.
