It all started in the early 1980s when Marco Franceschetti, now the owner of Drago Ribaltabili S.r.l., started working in his small sheet metal workshop.

Immediately his genius and skill in metal working were only too obvious and he quickly built up expertise in various fields, ranging from light to medium to heavy industry.

It was during those years that he met Mr. Giampaolo Andreoli, founder of Andreoli Rimorchi S.r.l, one of Italy's leading companies specialising in fitting industrial vehicles with tipper bodies.
