was founded in 1943, out of a simple intuition of Luigi Castoldi, its brilliant founder.
His first business revolved around a tiny workshop in Abbiategrasso, a town on the outskirts of Milan. The area still maintains a strong agricultural tradition. All the work, sowing and reaping was done with the farmers' own hands.
Hence the idea to design and manufacture a self-propelled mowing machines, among the first in the world, equipped with an internal combustion engine with low power. Thus the model '243' was born, representing a revolution in the agricultural world of that time. Thanks to its great production capacity and the concrete improvement it made in farmers' lives.
In his project, the Engineer Luigi Castoldi involved Camillo Bonetti, a manager at the tax authority of Abbiategrasso, and Severino Speroni, an excellent mechanic. The abbreviation BCS comes from the initials of their surnames.
The impact of the BCS motor mower was so great that Engineer Castoldi soon embarked upon the development of the reaper binders for reaping and harvesting cereals. Thereafter BCS entered the field of lawn maintenance with the construction of the first 'light' and smaller multi-function two-wheel tractors for a market in which, until then, there had only been expensive and bulky machines for tilling and maintaining plots of land.
The innate enterprising spirit of Engineer Castoldi made him take interest in other market sectors, thus founded the company in 1963, specializing in the production of machinery for the industrial sector. The first portable engine-driven welder with an internal combustion engine was developed that could generate its own current for the purpose of welding. Soon the professional range of engine-driven welders were complemented with a whole range of power generators and a nice, sturdy series of lighting towers. Meanwhile, to meet the growing demand for increased productivity in agriculture, rotary discs were introduced for tractors in 1970 under BCS brand. With their focus on the development and manufacturing of special tractors, two-wheel tractors, motor mowers, greens
The experience gained over the years along with the success of these machines in farming mechanization and greens maintenance now enabled BCS to create professional and semi-professional models under the brand . This range of products was purely dedicated to users for whom a manicured garden is a true passion or a daily hobby. People and the companies who use this type of machinery continuously demand the very best in terms of performance, reliability, comfort and cost-effective running, all enclosed within an innovative and attractive design.
Today the is a leading multinational group in the mechanization sector with its continuous contribution towards the design and manufacturing of machines for agricultural, for greens maintenance, machines for autonomous electrical energy production and mobile welding.
