Tratos supports local students

Tratos Cavi has sponsored ‘Premio Capaccini’ for the 16th year running, awarding the best high school and secondary school students in the vicinity of its headquarters in Pieve Santo Stefano, Tuscany, Italy with cash prizes.

The winning students who graduated with the highest marks were:

Secondare School
Giulia Cheli, Sofia Livi (cum Laude), Costanza Magiotti e Veronica Ricci

High School
Federico Baldassarri, Azzurra Bigioli, Francesco Calabresi, Beatrice Venturi

The award is in memory of Egidio Capaccini, the founder of Tratos Cavi spa.

Following WWII, Egidio Capaccini left the physically and economically devastated Southern Tuscany for Argentina where he was employed in a factory making cables, eventually becoming manager of the factory. In the early 1960s Egidio returned to Italy, using his experience to establish Tratos Cavi. Employees were drawn from the remnants of the textile industry that had once flourished in Southern Tuscany as their experience proved useful when it came to covering the cables with textile, as was the practise at that time.

Since then Tratos has grown to become an international cable manufacturer of repute, selling an extensive range of cables to 52 countries worldwide with manufacturing facilities in Italy and the UK. It remains a family owned business to this day, with Albano Bragagni as President – Egidio’s brother in law. Strong ties remain with IMSA, the factory in Argentina where it all started.
