IT ALL STARTS WITH A PASSION


I never thought of doing anything else in my life, even if circumstances led me to different choices for a few years, I always knew that I would become an electrician.
When I was a kid, I couldn’t wait a long time to join my uncle’s workshop, among domestic appliances to be repaired. For hours I observed how to bring to a new life again a no longer working device and, anxiously waiting for being able to go on-site to “pull the cables”.
My name is Mauro Zanocco and thanks to my perseverance and passion, I created my company from nothing in Verzuolo (CN) in 1990. At the beginning it only was a garage, with essential equipment and, alas, not even a van, but the experience gained in two or three companies in the sector, which believed in me from the beginning providing with work and a good manual skill, supported me in the foundations of my company, which is still prosperous and expanding today.
The early days, helped by my wife Paola, were the most tiring: weekends and after dinner were all dedicated to accounting, quotations, while the day passed in the working sites where the development of the systems, the resolution of various problems, that gradually presented themselves, left me very short time for anything else.
Step by step, I realized that Zanocco Company was growing, also thanks to the help of Stefano, my first and trusted employee still in service today, and above all to the support of my wife who, in the meantime had decided to work full time in ours small company. A difficult challenge for those who decide to get involved by starting an artisan trade without a family tradition in the sector, but which over time has proved to rise to the occasion and face the initial sacrifices.


MORE AND MORE COMPETITIVE THANKS TO PEOPLE WORKING IN THE COMPANY


Years pass and Zanocco can count on the help of four/five employees. The demand for new systems is high, we work a lot, but it is no longer possible to dedicate ourselves to their maintenance. Then, almost by chance, I get the idea of proposing to Maurizio Quirico, one of my employees, to found a new company, SMI. At the beginning, the newly formed company should only have dealt with the maintenance of the plants, ours and others, but then SMI begins to undertake new activities related to software, growing up in parallel with Zanocco. We thus faced two very distinct organisations. Two related companies that have always shared the same offices and the same administration.

A CRAFTSMAN HEART WITH A MODERN APPROACH


Tomorrow is already written: Pietro and Carlo, my two sons, have all the skills to carry on a company with thirty years of experience. Both of them take care of the company with great devotion, Pietro in the field of construction management, construction sites, sales and Carlo in that, more congenial to him, of software.
It is a great satisfaction to see them next to me with a common passion. The new generations contribute positively to changes, development, innovation, they represent the modern approach to a work that respects identity and does not forget to have a craftsman heart.
