1948 - 1960
In 1948 Agostino Crippa founded the company Crippa. Our founder had a vision toward the future of his country: he was the first businessman who designed tube bending machine, but also other devices that were useful to the postwar rebuilding of houses, factories, plants and infrastructures. Such as the machine called SPINGITUBO that was used to build gas pipelines, or the TITANUS that bent pipes for plants and it was used by plumbers to rebuild plants. Towards the end of the first decade of life, Crippa designed the bending machine that laid the basis for the evolution of our machines: MEDIOLANUM.
