Casagrande, tell us a little about your company.

Today, Casagrande SRL is a reality operating on the national and international territory, with a team of highly qualified professionals, 5 M.C.M. machining centres, a turning department with 3 machining centres, a milling department with 3 machining centres, a metrology room to keep the entire production under control, a technical office for the design of all our equipment and order management. Thanks to the quality of the solutions offered, the punctuality of deliveries, substantial investments in cutting-edge technology and the ability to innovate by anticipating future trends, over the years we have managed to significantly increase our customer base and penetrate significant market shares.
