Proud of its origins, Bergamo’s based Tesmec Group aims to be the best business partner in a changing world as stated on the company’s official website. The company was founded in 1951 in Grassobbio, a small town near Bergamo (Northern Italy), by Annibale Caccia Dominioni and Alfredo Brignoli.

Tesmec Group operates in the infrastructure market for the transport of energy, data and material (oil and derivatives, gas, water). Over the years Tesmec Group has seen its market position in the field of stringing equipment strengthen.

Recently, Tesmec Group has won a contract with Brazilian company AbencorSuministros, a subsidiary 100% owned by Abengoa SA, a Spanish multinational corporation that invests in innovative sustainable technology solutions in the energy and environmental sectors.


The Abengoa Group is an international leader in the construction of transmission lines that support electricity networks. Over the last five years Abengoa has built more than 5,000 km of transmission lines in countries like Brazil, Peru, Chile, Argentina, France, Spain, Romania, Morocco and India.


The above mentioned contract recently awarded to Tesmec with AbencorSuministros is worth approximately €36m. Specifically, Tesmec Group will supply machines and accessories for stringing operations in one of the largest construction projects of transmission lines in the Eastern part of Brazil. This large project consists of the construction of over 5,000 km of transmission lines with a voltage of 500Kv.


The project was announced last November and construction is due to start towards the end of 2014 and finish in 2015. Ambrogio Caccia Dominioni commented:

“We are very pleased with the contract. This represents great recognition for Italian technology innovation and also for the Italian business and political environment that helped us in securing this deal”.
