This January, Fassi Asia Pacific SDN. BHD. obtained a prestigious form of certification for the construction of truck-mounted cranes from the Malaysian Department of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH).
This achievement marks a significant turning point for the company, which began operations in Malaysia in 2013 with the aim of leading the country’s hydraulic knuckle-boom crane manufacturing industry. Since then, Fassi Asia Pacific has been constantly dedicated to the safety and well-being of workers in the workplace, maintaining the highest quality and safety standards.
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.
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).
The adoption and communication of its own Code of Ethics serves to raise awareness in order to safeguard proper company operations.

At the same time, a supervisory body has been set up in order to verify the effectiveness, suitability and observance of the principles and criteria of general conduct. The Code of Ethics will shortly be published in full on this website.
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.
