Benito Fracca President,
Founder Fraste Spa

"Perfection does not exist!"

.....But the will to go near it YES, since more than 50 years.
My commitment has always been dedicated to achieving the set targets, make them into goals and then start again with new ideas.
I believe that the best investment is the one in step with the times, aligned to the last conceptions of work and quality; however not without challenges.

......Talking about Challenges, I think that these are, in our company, a very strong propellant, which gives us the enthusiasm to embark on new studies and proposals, in order to always offer equipment with higher performances, stated quality machines that strengthen the image of the FRASTE customer.
