Founded in the early Seventies by Teresio Fantini, CO.GE.FA. starts its operations with motorway maintenance work. The company quickly developed its technical capabilities to take on important contracts for ATM, Turin’s public transport company, as well as the resurfacing of the city’s main arterial roads.
In the Eighties CO.GE.FA. wins increasingly large tenders, making a transition from maintenance contractor to construction company.
In the late Eighties CO.GE.FA. earns its place among Italy’s medium-size enterprises thanks to important contracts for motorway building and large infrastrucutral works for ANAS.
In the Nineties the Company strengthens its position on the Turin territory through the acquisition and land consolidation of around 2.5 million square metres that will become the heart and operational centre of the Company.
It is also at this time that Massimo and Roberto come into the company, in 1988 and 1992 respectively. In the new millennium the youngest sibling, Alessandra joins the company: under the guidance of the second generation, CO.GE.FA evolves, also with the introduction of highly qualified individuals from outside the family into the management team.
During this period, CO.GE.FA undertakes the construction of important sections of the high speed railtrack joining Turin and Milan, and the preparation work for the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin.
At the same time, the Company starts its involvement in real estate with the first residential building projects undertaken through PROMAR, of which the Fantini family is a major shareholder. This evolution is consolidated in the last ten years, as the company undertakes construction projects in the commercial, residential, office building and service sectors, while public infrastructure remains its natural vocation.
Today CO.GE.FA. is expanding abroad, having established an operational base in Romania and bringing in experienced professionals in order to serve emerging markets.
