The History

How is a great idea conceived and how does it come into being? BCS came into being in the early 1940s on a simple intuition of Luigi Castoldi, its ingenious founder. Its first business revolved around a tiny workshop in Abbiategrasso, a small town in the valley of the Ticino River; the area was still highly agricultural: all the work, sowing and reaping was done by hand. It was 1942 and a terrible war was going on. The period was uncertain and not at all favourable for opening new businesses, but Luigi Castoldi saw the near future very clearly and had one certainty to defend: agricultural mechanization had stopped at the beginning of the century, to be competitive sooner or later it had to become allied with industry and would need investments in technologies and machinery. From a mere observation, there began a story which was to be studded with success.

The many capacities of the "engineer" included his talent as an inventor. He wholly designed the futuristic motor-boat which in 1930, piloted by his brother Achille, made the world speed record for Italy; the same prize went to the Macchi-Castoldi MC 72 seaplane with a Fiat engine, conceived by his cousin Mario. The unusual inventiveness of the Castoldis was accompanied by an inclination for entrepreneurship. The combination was very successful: the first motor-mowing machines were created, wholly conceived and produced in Italy. Farm workers were grateful: the debilitating efforts of many hours spent in the sun were only a memory to tell their children. The success was overwhelming and the way was now open. The production of the small workshop, which had now become large, moved towards a complete range of farming machinery that was increasingly specialized and efficient and which was to revolutionize the farming world forever.
