Company history and description of the company Elettren, Italien

In 1946 Armando Ravasini began with the production of the 0691 and the E428. What began as a hobby became very quickly a business and further cars were produced. While at the beginning they produced cars of the Italian state railways FS soon they began to produce cars of the SBB for the Swiss market. Count Giansant-Coluzzi, the owner of the company FULGUREX, took over the marketing of the Elettren-products in Switzerland. Presumably on his stimulation they also produced cars of the CIWL
In 1964 Franco Ravasini took the leadership from his father. He enlarged the production.
In 1993 Fabio e Maurizio Ravasini the grandson of the founder took the leadership of the company.
