“We are a company in continuous evolution”


Frascold's strengths include its innovative drive and constant investments both in the production departments of the Headquarters, to implement the degree of automation through the adoption of intelligent and sustainable 4.0 solutions, and in R&D for the conception of new solutions. Worth noting, for example, are the investments made in the smart factory concept in order to deliver superior quality and shorter lead times. These investments have provided for additional automated machining stations in various departments, including the lathe machining department, and lines organised along Industry 4.0 concepts. This facility’s stand-out features also include the Testing Laboratory, opened in 2021, the Competence Center, and its Customer Service.

Giuseppe Galli

Giuseppe Galli, graduating from the Politecnico di Milano in 1988, started his career in Frascold in 1996 where he took on strategic tasks for the development of non-European markets leading the company to achieve important goals in the Far East and South America. As a result of the successes achieved, in 1999, he was asked to manage manufacturing at the Rescaldina facility, in the province of Milan, Italy, where he pushed automation with the introduction of robots and automated systems. This strategic action allowed Frascold to increase its manufacturing capacity and to diversify its offer, in order to cope with a strong growth in demand. Since 2003, he has been a member of the Frascold Board of Directors, with the task of coordinating the company’s functions, and, since 2009, has been its CEO.
