The company Caffini Spa is one of the most important Italian producers of machines for crop protection. The company was founded in 1924 in Palù, in the region of Verona, by Giovanni Battista Caffini. It is located in the Po valley, in an area devoted to the cultivation of cereals, tobacco, fruits (apples, pears, peaches) and vineyards. The historical context is the development of the first major agricultural mechanization in Italy. At the beginning the core business of the Company was the repair of agricultural equipment as workshop, followed by the construction of trailers and other equipment for working the soil. Since 1993 the Company, while maintaining the total family property, became Caffini Spa limited company and since 2003 it is certified by quality management system ISO9001: 2008. Over these 90 years of experience, spirit of innovation, tenacity and passion have turned this family-run business in a Company specialized in the production of machinery for crop protection that is appreciated at international level. Today Caffini S.p.A. continues to invest in the production and development of new solutions and technologies to simplify the work of modern farmers, paying a special attention to safety and environmental protection, consolidating a solid foundation for the future. The Company mission is Technology and Ecology: the New technical solutions have to be at the service of agriculture and the environment. For this reason the Caffini machines are certified ENTAM (European Network for Testing Agricultural Machines) both for use and safety of user and are produced in conformity of the directive 2009/128/CE.
