Who we are
The company Petrucco was founded in 1911 in Cividale del Friuli, Italy, where today it still has its main Italian branch offices for the Group, by the engineer Mr. Alvise Petrucco, who passed the company on to his son Antonio Petrucco, and subsequently to his nephew, Alvise Petrucco, the present CEO for the Group.
Working as a general contractor, Petrucco performed works primarily in the field of road and highway construction, bridges and viaducts, and hydroelectric, chemical and petro chemical plants.
In 1978 the Group Petrucco perfromed its first Box Jacking works, and from then on, focused its efforts on the development of systems for the hydraulic jacking of underpasses. To date Petrucco has successfully completed the jacking of over 1,300 works in both Italy and Spain, a market that was opened in 1986.
In these years they have jacked underpasses of al dimensions, arriving at lengths of over 140 meters, with weights of 20,000 Metric Tons.
To date, the Petrucco Group has specialized in the jacking and excavation of railroad and road underpasses, and in the supporting of the tracks during the jacking operations. For the support of the railroad tracks the recently patented “Petrucco System” has been developed that consists of a system of steel beams supported by sliding beams that allow the trains to transit at a speed of 80km/h, during the actual jacking operations of the underpass.
In this way, the Petrucco Group can offer to General contractors, or Clients, a partner with over 30 years of experience in the jacking of underpasses and the support of the tracks; an experience that is not only offered during the actual execution of the works, but also as an instructional or consulting tool, to designer and professionals in this field during the development of such projects.
