In 1964 the brothers Egidio e Giorgio Maschio started the production of rotary tillers in the barn of their house, the so-called 'small shop of rotary tillers'.
That agricultural barn, used as a mechanical workshop, today has become a major industrial Group still managed by the Maschio family that guarantees the continuity in the leading of the Group.
