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.
At the present Socage focuses its work on the emerging markets and on the innovation.
Despite the difficulties the market is facing, the Company is investing in training courses, and 500.000 euros have been invested in a new and upgraded 3D Design Software, which allows the Technical Department to carry out stress analysis on individual components prior to production. The materials used are therefore optimized and the result is the greater performance of the overall platform. In 2012 the Company decided to restyle the equipments. The result is the new forSte line: more than 100 changes have been made on each platform in order to improve not only the aesthetical appearance, but also the performance of the platforms, aiming at keeping the pace with a constantly changing market.
Socage aims at being present in the whole world, in order to get to know customers’ requirements and to be able to satisfy them. To realize this goal, the company has been creating an efficient network of branches and dealers.
Socage will continue to invest in emerging markets to become the first World manufacturer of truck mounted platforms. The customer satisfaction will always be paramount for Socage so each request will be taken into consideration and studied case by case.
