Industrie Cometto S.p.A. origins date back to 1954, when the first workshop for the production of vehicles, bridge-cranes and installations opened in Cuneo with the name of Officine Cometto, and transformed in 1970 into Cometto S.p.A.
In 1962 the plant was moved to the actual location following the increased production needs due to the development of the trailers sector, especially for the transport of railways wagons to the customer’s yard. The original structures have undergone subsequent increments with doubling of production plant in 1967 and in 1974, and further increments in 1982 and in 2002.
In 1992 Industrie Cometto S.p.A. participated in the constitution of CARICO S.p.A., manufacturer of heavy fabrications. This Company supplies chassis to Industrie Cometto S.p.A., leaving Cometto to produce more specialised processes of assembly, finishing and testing.
The production has little by little diversified in various types of vehicles, from road transport to abnormal transport to special transport. Among the great performances of Industrie Cometto S.p.A. worth a special mention:
- “Orbiter Transporter” built for the NASA in 1983
- The first and the greatest self-propelled modular system ever built (3.000 t.) manufactured for Nippon Express in 1981
- The entire European space project “Ariane 5”
- The greatest self-propelled ever built (for the transport of fabrications up to 1.000 t.). for Hyundai Heavy Industries, South Korea
Today Industrie Cometto S.p.A. is a leader company specialised in study, design, production and sales of trailers and semitrailers for heavy transport.
