A new idea
The company’s history begins at the end of the 1980’s, as a specialized metalworking workshop.
The Cangini brothers had their first workshop in their family house, in the rural area of Pagno, at the hearth of Romagna Apennines. They were young but had clear ideas, they were innovative thinkers and able to grasp the market trends. This is why, when the first mini-excavators were launched on the market, they specialized in the design and production of buckets.
A winning choice
In the 1990’s the choice of extending their production range proved successful. Those years were full of innovation: in 1992, the prototype of the first quick coupler passed the tests, and then the same in 1996, with the first attachment tool The Cangini Catalogue was enriched with innovative products, to give the market exactly what it was asking for: high-performance and cutting-edge solutions. The Company acquired a new manufacturing plant and moved its headquarters to Sarsina, choosing to keep roots in its own territory.
The first patent
2001 was the year of the first patent, together with the acknowledgement of specialized press rewarding the company’s efforts in research and innovation.
Cangini around the world
In 2006 the Company opened a new production facility in response to the increasing market demand: the facility surface area exceeded 2,500 m2. The world economic crisis - that affected the entire world and Italy in particular – found Cangini well prepared and able to overcome this difficult phase, thanks to their considerable export sales in particular.
In full development
In 2015, another expansion was necessary: a new office area. Inside this unit, an area has been dedicated exclusively to events and technical workshops, enabling the company to strengthen its relationships with customers.
Mention of honour for safety. Samoter Innovation Award 2017
Innovative ideas, quality and development are not the only strengths at the core of Cangini’s activities. Safety as well is the key for all new designs. In 2016, the company was awarded with the Mention of Honour for Safety, on the occasion of the 22nd Samoter Innovation Award 2017.
An increase in production capacity and efficiency
Production capacity increases thanks to a new production area dedicated to hydraulic tools (2,400 m2). At the same time, the Company’s business system becomes even more efficient, through the implementation of Industry 4.0 principles.
Following the installation of their new water-based coating system, Cangini accomplishes its commitment to environmental protection.
