Manufacturing in Tortona – The supporting pillar in Piedmont
Piedmont in the north of Italy – sought-after region for wine connoisseurs and nature lovers. But it is also the economic center for, above all, automotive and aerospace, with Turin as its capital. Tortona is situated in the center of Piedmont and on the banks of the Scrivia, which was already mentioned by Julius Caesar in his writings.
In medieval times, Tortona was first a fortress city before becoming a free city. With advances in industrialization, it later developed into a center for machine building, above all to meet agricultural needs. Parts for tractors and harvesters were made here – and since 1940, also for threshing machines.
