Heritage - Galdabini


Founded by Cesare Galdabini in 1890

Founded in 1890 and fully owned by Galdabini family, the company is headquartered very close to Milan Malpensa airport.

The company has always had a strong vocation for innovative solutions. The initial artisan activity of maintenance and repair of the local born textile factory, almost immediately turned out into construction of machines for the mechanical industry.

The new born and already consolidated industrial reality operates in a cultural context aimed at perfection and absolute innovation of its implementations.The manufacturing of high pressure hydraulic machines with columns and uprights expands and, at the same time, the measuring machines technology further develops.

Galdabini created its history with more than a century spent with unchanged pioneering spirit and passion for technical challenges which have now become our values. Growth and development are pursued with determination and continuity.

We put success in the market in direct relation with the company success, therefore we strive for a pro-active relationship with our customers. They are in first place in our philosophy and we work altogether with dedication and commitment to come up with the best and newest technology.
