The Boschetto were artisans of the agricultural activities, in which they sowed and harvested with all the difficulties and hardships of work done in the primitive and sacrificial form, as it was done. The purpose they had was first and foremost; the production of harvesting machines for wheat and flax crops. No entrepreneurial capital was set and the company, rather than a commercial objective, had the purpose of fulfilling the need to create and with such an incentive the until then farmers made of solid knowledge of general mechanics, to which they added, as is logical , the abundant experience acquired over the years dedicated to the same task, but with inadequate means. The first year of work resulted in the manufacture of 2 machines to reach 1963, to 85 units and for 1964 the production program denotes a ponderable figure of 120 units. The primitive workshop of 1939 with 480 m2 covered was extended until, at the end of the 50 ', it was 7000 m2 covered, with modern facilities including office, administrative and technical sector, materials depot, spare parts and engines. Two power plants, one of direct current and another of alternating current. The children, descendants of the pioneers of society and already men are incorporated into it, thereby increasing the human potential that allows facing tasks in a communion of ideals and purposes and success is strengthened.
