COSMA was born in 1980 from Alfio Mattioli’s initiative as small artisan firm in the field of hydraulic cylinders, tyres and oledynamics for agricultural machinery, special machinery and heavy equipment.

At the end of the 90s the company started to grow thanks to the introduction of an innovative technical and design office to back up our customers, assuring them the chance to use customised cylinders, carried out using the most up-to-date equipment

In 2000 COSMA became COSMA SAS, thus starting the generational turnover carried on by Alfio’s children, LUCA and DAVIDE. These new partners’ energy and enthusiasm and the more and more efficient design service brought an increase in the number of customers and the strengthening of the company image, increasingly related to reliability and innovation.

In 2008 the company moved to the present headquarters measuring 2.500 square meters. This new, bigger facility allowed us to further renew and innovate our machinery fleet, thus improving the manufacturing process fluidity and increasing the size of the cylinders we can make, maintaining the production flexibility that has always distinguished COSMA.

In 2013 COSMA SRL was founded. It specialises in cylinders making, whereas COSMA SAS deals with research and development, design and prototyping for our customers. Today COSMA GROUP has about 30 collaborators and is a young and dynamic company whose professionalism and reliability are guaranteed by a strong and strengthened experience. The importance we give to human resources and to never-ending and steady investments in research and innovation is fundamental. This will allow COSMA GROUP to establish itself both at a national and international level.
