Officine Porcellato was founded when the brothers Bruno and Giovanni, collaborating with the father on the farming activity, decided to build one cabin to install on their own agricultural machine in order to protect themselves from the environmental conditions in the countryside of Treviso.
The high quality of the products of the Porcellato Brothers impressed the Area Manager of one big company working on the agricultural machine sector. He commissioned the brothers to build other cabins. That first order gave rise to the the entrepreneurial history of Italcab.
After this first order, other orders started to come from different companies of neighboring cities. This leads to Italcab to start to grow and enlarge the production of high quality cabins.
Due to the exponential growth in sales volumes, Italcab begins his exploration in international market, differentiating production towards earth moving, construction and industry.
Parallel production continues to evolve: from the creation of a simple metal casing, to the the production of models characterized by increasing complexity, up to a complete guide modules pursuing goals of high quality, safety and comfort.
The integrated warehouse management project was totally implemented: the warehouse management by barcode leads to a precise and fast handling of the material in transit into the warehouse.
Italcab celebrates its 25th anniversary with a big company party during which the new production plan has been inaugurated at the presence of all the employees and their families, besides local autorities.
During the celebration the artwork “Metallic Space” of the artist Pino Barillà has been installed and the "Garden of the Philosophers" of the poet Luigi Cerantola were opened.
Itacab links its name to the main designer names: in this year new cabins were been produced in co-design with Porsche and Pininfarina.
The first cabin complete with barcode identifier has been sold. It allows the full traceability of the product, processes and components.
Italcab implements the digitization of the assembly lines; this allows a better quality of the data collected about the development of production and processing, including traceability of main components assembled in each single cabins directly from the terminals positioned within each line.
Italcab outdoes the turnover achieved in 2007, for the first time since the 2008-2009 crisis, thanks to its organizational improvements and having more than doubled the cabin models produced.
The digital connection between the production processes and the management system is completed in every department.
This achievement eases the management of increasingly complex products and processes in combination with the changes in demand.
