A success story in the production of fruit processing systems
1978: Carlo Ascari founded ABL; a company that manufactured fruit processing machines and systems for the local canning industry which was the reference market during that period. However, thanks to the founder's ability to predict market trends and his willingness to expand the company's business, in just a few years ABL grew and entered international markets.
1980 – 1990: During these years the company’s core business changed rapidly, moving towards the production of machines and systems for the processing of apples, pears and peaches for both the European and American markets.
1992: Luca and Daniela, son and daughter of the founder Carlo Ascari, joined ABL, reorganizing the company property structure, which was divided into equal shares between the father, the mother and the children.
1998 – 1999: ABL began its adventure in the new fresh-cut market, creating new product lines designed specifically for this target, with fruit processing systems that prepare the various types of fruit for the preserved fresh-cut market and deep-frozen market.
As of 2000: ABL started exporting its fruit processing systems abroad, thanks to innovative technologies and customized solutions that reinforced its international importance and its ability to penetrate the market.
2012: A difficult year, marked by the earthquake that severely affected the entire industrial fabric of the Emilia region and that obliged ABL to a temporary office change in a rented building. Despite the repercussion suffered by the company after the earthquake, ABL increased its turnover and its presence in the fruit processing systems market, establishing itself as a reality in continuous growth.
