SO.CA.GE “Società di Carpenteria Generale” was established in 1974 as a specialized company in the production of metallic components. In 1981 the company specialized in the manufacturing of working access platforms and thanks to its innovative articulated platforms affirmed itself as a leader in the Italian market. In 1987 the SO.CA.GE-FASSI ( the third World manufacturer of truck mounted cranes ) started the ambitious project to create the first Italian group specialized in equipment for aerial work. Thanks to the FASSI’s technical and industrial know-how, SO.CA.GE has been growing year by year. The turning point in SO.CA.GE history is August 2009: SOCAGE S.r.l. was bought by a group of entrepreneurs with a great experience in the access platform sector: Mr Fiorenzo Flisi and Mr Maurizio Piantoni. They aimed at speeding up the company development through huge investments in R&D in order to offer the market products with better performances, in comparison with competitors’ equipments.
