Fassi gru is celebrating its 45th anniversary

A story of successes and innovations in the world of cranes for the anniversary of the company which exports Made in Italy cranes all over the world.

Fassi Gru is celebrating its forty-fifth birthday in 2010. Founded in 1965 by Franco Fassi, who had an entrepreneurial curiosity to discover the secrets of the first cranes imported to Italy, Fassi is currently run by his son Giovanni, who is responsible for the exponential growth of the company which in the past three years has almost reached 60%, resulting in the Company becoming the number two brand in the world in its sector. ”Innovation, a search for the best steels and components, and above all a passion for what we do”, these, for Giovanni Fassi, are the main ingredients for achieving the ambitious goals which the company meets year after year.

The most significant steps in the company's growth include the introduction in the 1980s of the first cranes with fifth wheel and the reinforcement of its sales network in all the main European markets. The 1990s primarily witnessed the strong expansion of this network on a worldwide level (almost 60 markets) and the success of the F750 model crane. Technological innovation and consequent updating of the production lines, expansion of production units and the introduction of the "Evolution Concept" characterised the 2000-2009 decade.

Due to its business vocation the Albino company continues to believe in the value of “Made in Italy”: it works with 11 plants, all located in Italy, which employee 450 people and which can produce around 12,000 cranes per year. The Italian spirit of Fassi cranes is a reason for pride for the whole Group, which is happy to be able to state that Fassi Gru is an Italian company able to export a quality product to the entire world and guarantee technical assistance.
