Acsa | steel forgings

Since its foundation in 1935 in Solbiate Arno, thanks to the intuition and tenacity of Antonio Colombo, Cavaliere del Lavoro (Knight of Labor), A.C.S.A. Steel Forgings S.p.A., an acronym for Antonio Colombo Solbiate Arno, has always been led by a family of thoroughbred entrepreneurs.

Today A.C.S.A. Steel Forgings S.p.A. is managed by the third generation of entrepreneurs, already flanked by the next one to learn all the secrets and maintain the highest levels of quality and service for their partners.

Different ages and faces, but shared values: the ability to seize the opportunities offered by the steel forging market, in over 85 years of history, thanks to the clear-cut will to achieve continuous improvement in hot forging processes.

This is not enough to make A.C.S.A. such a structured organization. At its root lie the values of the people who, over time, have always worked and continue to work with enthusiasm, expertise and passion.

All this is confirmed by the golden rule of A.C.S.A. Steel Forgings: solid foundations to face the next challenges with willpower and confidence, in a future yet to be written that will be signed by a brand that is strong like forged steel. Ours.
