Technological innovations, new acquisitions, commercial successes.
Fassi Gru’s participation at GIS, the lifting and heavy transport vehicle trade fair at Piacenza Expo, is an opportunity for the company to look back over a year that has seen a number of extremely positive changes:
- The acquisition of the French body shop Forez-Bennes
- The inauguration of the new Innovation Centre
- The presentation of a new model from the TECHNO range
- The new head of sales for Italy, Daniele Vismara
On 3 August 2023, the FASSI Group in France formally acquired Forez-Bennes through the holding CTELM. This latest addition to the Group joins the other organisations already present, i.e., Fassi France, Marrel (producer of the Ampliroll® hooklifts) and the industrial body shops Miltra Paris Nord, Miltra Provence and Decauville.
This acquisition completes the Group’s range in France, offering three main types of truck-mounted lifting equipment: knuckle-boom cranes, tippers and hydraulic hooklifts.
The next race weekend of the UCI E-Mountain Bike Cross-Country 2023 World Cup will take place in San Paolo d'Argon in the province of Bergamo (Lombardy, Italy)
The competition venue for the third stage of the UCI E-Mountain Bike Cross-Country 2023 World Cup will be held in the municipality of San Paolo d'Argon in the province of Bergamo (Lombardy), near the Cavallina valley and not far from the Seriana valley. Fassi is a sponsor of this sporting event scheduled for Saturday 15 July and Sunday 16 July.
Fassi is one of the main sponsors of the “2023 UCI E-MTB World Cup”,
the World Cup for E-MTB, electric mountain bikes, which will begin
tomorrow in the Principality of Monaco and will see another seven dates
throughout Europe, with two stages in Italy in the mountains of the Emilia and Bergamo areas.
Fassi, as always particularly involved in the world of sport and focused on environmental sustainability, has decided to involve the brand in a sport that is becoming ever more popular, not only for its competitive aspects, but also for its respect for the environment and its valorisation of the natural beauty of the race venues.
Two exhibitions and a catalogue for a single large-scale project; Entrepreneurial Culture in Bergamo and Brescia as told through pictures, from the dawn of the twentieth century, to the excellence of 4.0 enterprises.
Bergamo and Brescia are joint Capitals of Culture in 2023.
Sharing the title between the two cities is what motivated the candidacy, and it has informed the Capitals’ calendar of initiatives for the year. In line with this philosophy, 1 April saw the public opening of the large-scale exhibitions BergamoBrescia Cultura d’impresa - Photographic stories of innovation, held at the Convento di San Francesco in Bergamo and at the Spazio Fondazione Negri in Brescia.
The project has been created by invitation and with support from SIAD Fondazione Sestini, and has been made possible thanks to the close collaboration between a number of museums, foundations and businesses in the Bergamo and Brescia area, which have shared their archives to create a visual presentation of the history of entrepreneurial culture throughout the 20th century. Five sections mark a journey through photographic images to explore the past, the present and the future.
More than 200 pictures represent the area’s vocation for manufacturing and its capacity for innovation that made, and continues to make, Bergamo and Brescia leading figures in the economic history of Italy and Europe. Fassi features in two sections; with a photo of one of our cranes from 1969, and a present-day image representing 4.0 innovation in our company.
The exhibition in Bergamo will be open from 1 April to 9 July 2023 at the San Francesco Cloister in Città Alta (the upper part of the city).
