"The company"

WHO WE ARE

A family story, a story of quality.

Sgolastra Srl is a company that has been active for almost fifty years in the field of drilling equipment and hydraulic cylinders.

It was founded in 1976 by Maurizio Sgolastra, who, with dedication and passion, transitioned from small-scale turning to the production of the first cylinder.

From that moment on, the business specialized, evolved, and introduced drilling accessories, becoming a point of reference in the sector today.

Specifically, we manufacture standard hydraulic cylinders starting from a bore of 25 mm up to 900 mm with special cylinders, covering strokes up to 10,000 mm.

Among the drilling accessories, which range from heads to rotary tables to top drives, we have pipe wrenches and the new TOC wrench, a source of great pride.
