The president of the Fassi Group, the man who laid the groundwork so that we could become who we are, left us unexpectedly due to illness.


He remained in the business until 1st August this year, always present and attentive at the age of 89, which he celebrated last February and which brought with it the activity and lucidity that have always distinguished him.

Franco Fassi leaves us today with a great legacy of identifying values, which he was very keen on. "We have always remained faithful to our history. We have grown, we have always accepted new challenges, we have never stopped or been satisfied".

We would like to remember him with these words of his, which reveal his style, his way of understanding life, work - which was the very reason for his life - more than anything, and to look to the future with great confidence. 
Fassi Group ATN

The Fassi Group, through its French holding company, which already owns Fassi France and Marrel, has acquired control of ATN, a leading manufacturer of self-propelled aerial platforms on rubber or tracks with electric or diesel engines.


ATN, the French manufacturer of self-propelled aerial platforms, has developed a range of products designed primarily to meet the needs of rental companies, a particularly thriving market in France. The quality and robustness of the materials used guarantee the machines a long life cycle even in harsh operating conditions, while the design continues to improve and constantly expand the range of products, without neglecting a design that facilitates and simplifies maintenance operations to maximize the profitability of its customers.
