In 1948 the founder Giovanni Dalli Cani had the intuition to buy a company in Quinto Vicentino that manufactured electric motors: the 'I.S.G. Istituto San Gaetano', a religious institute.
Giovanni Dalli Cani began as a partner of the Pellizzari company, carrying out the preliminary manufacturing stages of the production of electric motors and then developed his own series of products in Arzignano, naming the new company I.S.G.E.V.: Industria Scientifica Generale Elettromeccanica Vicenza.
The new company developed new product series and expanded its production facilities, gradually entering many manufacturing sectors and focusing on special applications.
His sons Gianbattista and Giancarlo Dalli Cani further extended the company business and today they lead the company, together with a team of experts in the design, production and sales of electric motors.
