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.
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.
The Fassi Group has acquired more shares in Cranab, giving the Italian company complete ownership of the Swedish forestry group
Bergamo (Italy) – In 2013, Fassi became the part-owner of the Cranab Group and from then on has continued to increase its shares in the enterprise bit by bit. Now that the chairman of Cranab, Mr Hans Eliasson, is retiring after having spent 45 years with the company, the acquisition of his shares has allowed Fassi to become the full shareholder of the group, which includes the subsidiary companies Cranab, Slagkraft, Vimek and Bracke Forest.
It has been confirmed that Roger Boutonnet will continue as president of CTELM, and he took the opportunity, during the signing, to underline the excellent results obtained in 2016, both in terms of sales for Marrel and also with regards to the strengthening of all the subsidiaries. Boutonnet, also a partner in CTELM, emphasized the objectives of growth and continuity that the company has set for the near future.
