The story

“AB Progetti” was established in 1982, by its parent company (est. 1929), named “Officina Ing. C. Belforte”. The three founding members of AB Progetti were the two brothers – A. Belforte and F. Belforte (sons of C. Belforte, owner of Officina Ing. C. Belforte), and S. Bisetti.
“Officina Ing. C. Belforte” was specialized with 30 years of experience in design and construction of steam jet ejectors and vacuum systems, sea water desalination plants, heat exchangers, condensers, and degassers.
However, during the late 70s, this market first shifted to Japan and later to South Korea, due to the drastic reduction of orders from Italian shipbuilders. During the same period, the electronics and computers market evolved, thus allowing companies to have effective and innovative designed tools at affordable prices. Due to these reasons, the two Belforte brothers decided to form a new company dedicated exclusively to design, utilizing computer-aided technology to play a key role from the onset, which was one of the most innovative approaches at that time. The young, skilled, and self-driven S. Bisetti, and the two brothers thus began their new adventure.

Within a short span of time, AB Progetti designed its own products, using its own, in-house developed software – at AB Progetti, it has always encouraged measures towards internally developed and dedicated software. Nowadays, keeping up with international standards, AB Progetti’s internal software development team of dynamic and highly skilled expert resources ensure that their softwares are updated regularly meeting both the customer demands and the global compliance standards, without compromising security and quality issues.
