In the difficult post-war years Michele Blasi, father of the Rag. Luigi Blasi, began to make a name for himself among manufacturers and dealers of agricultural machinery in the region of Puglia, specializing in the production of ploughs and spraying and becoming, in a short time, one of the most important and well-known dealers.
Since 1972, after the premature death of his father, his son Luigi, accompanied by his family and his trusted collaborators, has taken the charge and responsibility of the inheritance left by his father and has been carrying out the company since the age of 11 years only.
In 1987, the Accountant Mr Luigi Blasi founds Agritalia, in view of establishing a large industrial project, trying to acquire a wide variety of companies in the agricultural and equipment sector. This ambitious project became true in 1990 and was born from the need of having a reality named “Projet” that in those times did not still exist in Italy. Progroup, today known as Bgroup, was the starting point for the accountant Blasi to go and set up a group with a full-line of products and equipment for agricultural machinery of which today he is the founding manager. In its history the group has carried out numerous and important acquisitions with the aim of obtaining a great diversity of agricultural equipment.
After realizing the industrial project started with Progroup after 24 years, from 1st January 2014, the group has renewed itself and has changed its name into Bgroup (Blasi Group). The family tradition of the Blasi is strongly attached to the world of agriculture and agricultural equipment and, with the birth of Bgroup, is becoming more and more a reference point at 360 degrees in the world of agricultural machinery and equipment Made in Italy.
The group’s activities, however have a wide range of sectors, in addition to agricultural and industrial ones. An example is the Abbate Estate, founded in 1990, which today is one of the most prestigious Italian farms and produces one of the most important wines in Italy, such as the Primitivo di Manduria.
Thanks to the commercial experience and intuition of Rag. Luigi Blasi, the group, in its current configuration, is the result of numerous acquisitions. Bgroup s.p.a. is today the most complete ecosystem of companies, with a total full line in the world of agricultural machinery in Italy.
