Mario Scapin, 50 years old and Tuscan-born, has a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pisa and a solid background in the field of agricultural mechanization, experience which began precisely at the SDF Group, where he worked from 1990 to 2001, becoming Research & Development Manager.

We felt that Mario Scapin was the person best suited to cover a key role for the future of the SDF Group: his indepth knowledge about the market and strategic vision, combined with the excellent results he has obtained throughout his career, make us proud of the fact that he has decided to join our Group says Lodovico Bussolati, C.E.O. of SAME DEUTZ-FAHR Group.
