Gis srl: production and maintenance of air compressors

Gis srl‘s roots can be traced back to 1956 when Giorgio Sgarbi who, at a time when nobody would have imagined, expertly grasped and understood the secrets of compressed air and its use, and it is a passion and dedication that has been passed down to his son Gianfranco.

In July 2022, Gis srl was acquired by Sau Group, whose core business since 1982 has been the production and marketing of high-quality tools. Gis srl, therefore, elevated the level of companies belonging to the group.
