Since 1946, we live passion, and we collect success

“The secret of success is constancy to purpose” (Benjamin Disraeli)

The Italian Republic was born in 1946. In the same year in Turin, CATI Gomma was founded: a bold idea, a strategic choice, a winning bet.

In the difficult years after the war, only the forward-looking entrepreneurs were able to shape a future beyond poverty and destruction caused by the war. The car would soon be the symbol and the instrument of a new development that everyone were waiting, and CATI quickly understood the prospectives and caught the incoming growth of the sector.

The 60s consecrate the leading role of the automobile market in the Italian economic scenario, and CATI is, at that time, a well-established company.

In 1975 the company unveiled its first factory in Moncalieri. That inexhaustible and innovative impetus has been the driver of the modern history of CATI.

A narrative of passion that leads CATI to the future successes!
