AuMec perhaps one of the youngest own-use harvesters and spare parts factories in the country is Aumec S.A. This company started in Arequito in 1959, in the RP92 and Belgrano, 89 km from the city of Rosario, due to the concern of two people with experience in the field, one of them was Celino Audoglio, a turner mechanic of recognized ability and who had worked in the factory Senor of San Vicente and La Margariteña of Colonia Margarita and Constantino Mecozzi, qualified mechanic of automotors, machinery and diesel engines. Both intend to test a prototype of a harvester and then begin the series production of the same, this project is carried forward while formalizing the company that will form the new company, on August 28, 1958 and will be called Aumec, derivative of the surnames of the initiators AU/doglio MEC/ozzi. Throughout more than three decades he developed different models of harvesting machines. When the experimental unit was tested in the wheat crop of that year and checked its operation, it was decided to start manufacturing in 1959, with 6 units increasing to 15 in 1960 and then increasing to 60 or 70 annual units of the AM models and then MD until the end of that decade.
