Officine di Cortenova
Known all over the world under the brand name Osca, it is a leading company in the production of hand tools made in Italy. Born in 1969 as a family business, today the company plays a very important role in the Italian and international markets, where its products have always been synonymous with absolute quality and performance.
All Osca tools (hammers, club hammers, sledge hammers, mallets, chisels) are entirely made in our facilities where - within a production area of over three thousand square meters - our specialized technicians follow the whole production cycle. For our products, we use only top quality materials, chosen and selected for their durability and able to offer the maximum guarantee of reliability and safety.
Our staff - constantly subjected to training and refresher courses - can take advantage of many years of experience in the field of mechanical tools, where we stand out for our constant attention to technological innovations and design care. These features have allowed our technicians to sign recognized and certified patents, able to provide Officine di Cortenova with unique, world-renowned products. As a matter of facts, Osca brand is present in all the major international markets, from Italy, Northern Europe, United States, Canada, where the tools designed, developed and manufactured in our company are a symbol of quality, safety and innovation.
Quality, reliability and attention to details represent the pillars of Officine di Cortenova company philosophy, which - since its foundation - has decided to focus on uncompromised quality as a distinctive mark of its production. Born as a handicraft business, our company - thanks to a policy of constant investments and attention to new technologies - has experienced steady growth over the years, which has allowed it to continue to expand its markets. Officine di Cortenova was founded in 1969 in a village in Valsassina with the same name, where its production premises are still present. After the successes achieved in the early stages of its activity, the 90s were another time of great growth.
In 1991, the latest generation machines were introduced, thus allowing the increase of production automation. The following years saw Osca brand gaining more and more international approval, thus allowing Officine di Cortenova to reach all major European and American markets. In particular, the laser marking system - which allows the customization of each product with writings directly engraved in wood or metal - is the show piece of Osca tools, able to win the approval of numerous customers. The choice to aim only at Made in Italy products - entirely designed and manufactured by our technicians - is a winning strategy for Officine di Cortenova. At the beginning of 2000s, two of our patents - the Osca 2000 tool handle and the Osca Evo mallet head - experienced a real boom. Suitable to be mounted on different types of tools, they have become the symbol of its production, recognized on the Italian and international markets for safety, versatility and ease of use - the three distinctive pillars of Osca tools ever since. In 2007, Officine di Cortenova added the manufacture of copper mallets to the traditional production of steel tools. Also in this case, the company decided to bet on quality. All copper tools are produced by cold drawing: a system ensuring the production of high-level durable products able to provide the maximum degree of safety and reliability even in this field. Nowadays, Officine di Cortenova is a solid, modern and constantly growing company, able to stand out for its high quality products, entirely made in the company's facilities from design to finished product. Besides the Italian market, Osca tools are present in all major international markets: Germany, the Netherlands, France, Slovakia, the United States and Canada are just some of the countries where Office di Cortenova operate successfully, thanks to a strong trust relationship with the leading companies active in Italy and abroad in the field of mechanical tools.
