History | Stucchi - Quick couplings

History

 

Half a century of solutions flow

Stucchi S.p.A. is based in Bergamo and ranks among the best established companies in the sector, both in Italy and abroad.

It was founded in 1960 by two entrepreneurs brothers from Brignano Gera d'Adda (Bergamo), who presented themselves to Italian manufacturing companies as suppliers of small metal products, in medium and large runs, made with the removal of metal shavings. Stucchi S.p.A. has enjoyed constant growth and is now one of the best consolidated industrial companies, both nationally and internationally, in the design, production and marketing of products for connection and fluid control.

Stucchi History
 

It has gained important achievements in terms of product quality and market presence thanks to its passion and perseverance and a desire to attain objectives of ever greater ambition.

Stucchi has always followed a path of quality and commitment to provide solutions that are new and that meet the customer’s many needs every time. The result of this approach is a company policy focusing on constant technical investment into production and design processes.

Over the past 25 years, Stucchi has produced flat face couplings the salient feature of which is the capacity for not leaking fluid during connection and disconnection. The couplings are made of various types of material treated in different ways, ranging in size from 1/8” to 2” for an operating pressure of up to 720 bar.

This has paved the way towards greater expansion into the international market – a market that has always recognised and rewarded Stucchi’s approach.

Stucchi S.p.A. currently employs about 150 people, it has an important network of suppliers, customers and partners, and markets its products in over 40 countries worldwide. 

The company has four sites: two production sites in Brignano Gera D’Adda (Bg) and two logistics sites in Pagazzano (Bg).

Important Achievements

At the end of the 1990s, the company had one of its products recognised by the ISO international standards authority.  Certification and application of ISO 9001 accompanies and supports all customer assistance activities.

Quality is guaranteed throughout the company’s supply chain, ensuring ever careful ISO quality control of the system.

After obtaining workplace safety certification (BS OHSAS 18001:2007), Stucchi S.p.A. went on to attain another key objective of its company policies: an environmental management system, certifying its company organisational model in accordance with UNI EN ISO 14001:2004.

The turn of the millennium saw the attainment of various targets, including the creation of the Stucchi Inc. branch in the United States (Chicago, Illinois), and then also the inauguration of a branch in China (Shanghai) and another in Australia (Melbourne).

All these are commercial branches that aim to best serve the commercial needs of the local market.

A benchmark company even in the future

The main and constant challenge that Stucchi S.p.A. faces is to continue to be a company of reference in the market of hydraulic components and, most importantly, to be a company whose products are safe, dependable, ecological, easy to use and long-lasting: products at the service of the industry and the economy, with a prospect for continuity that trusts in the future. 

These objectives can be attained thanks mainly also to long-term investment in technological research and human resources, and an awareness of the fact that the success of Stucchi S.p.A. is in the hands of the people who work for the company: a multicultural and varied team that works well together and is open to change and able to set solid ground for the following years.

We take care to improve upon the performance and potential of our collaborators, promoting awareness of one’s actions and trust in one’s skills,” says Giovanni Stucchi, the CEO of Stucchi S.p.A. The company looks to continuity over time with the conviction that change is a constant to be mastered to face the future.
