Company Profile

TRATOS CAVI S.p.a., the acronym of TRAfilerie TOScane, was founded in 1966 by Mr Egidio Capaccini, an Engineer in Pieve Santo Stefano in the province of Arezzo. Initially dedicated to drawing copper, the company extended its working horizons by successfully starting the production of electrical and telecommunications cables. In 1974 Albano Bragagni joins the company. By implementing a challenging set of investments, he initiates a process of technological growth and product diversification, entering new and qualified sector markets. Subsequently, with the establishment of new industrial and commercial companies, an integrated industrial group is created and controlled by the holding company TRATOS S.r.l. run by the Bragagni Capaccini family comprising four members: Albano Bragagni, Marta Capaccini, Elisabetta and Ennio. Thanks to these technical-commercial upgrades carried out over the years, today, this technologically advanced structure is at the forefront of the world of energy and telecommunications and operates in selected sectors with products of the highest quality.  Read more
