The Group CAB Costruzioni Aeronautiche Bertola was established in 1987 by the Bertola brothers. Its first activity was to provide MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Operations) and GSE (Ground Support Equipment) for the Italian aviation industry.
From the beginning, Sheet Metal Fabrication and Machining has been the main activity, but CAB soon took the challenge to expand its core business to adapt to the growing demand.
By the year 2004, the Company started opening to new markets and became the supplier of important foreign customers such as Sonaca; CAB became Airbus Certified through Sonaca as part of some of its major programs. In 2010, the Group invested in new manufacturing facilities for Special Processes such as Chemical Processing/Surface Treatments, Primer Application & Paint and Fusion Welding.
CAB bought MES (Manufacturing Execution System) in 2014, a software implemented to reduce scrap and waste, capture costs more precisely, increase uptime and improve scheduling and visibility. In 2016, after a continuous investment focused on the improvement of our products and technologies, the Group decided to refresh its image, changing the logo and motto, but more importantly, moving the production and offices to the current 3.000 square meters headquarters in Venice.
