SILCA was founded in 1917 by Felice Sacchi just outside of Milan, Italy. The company innovated and grew quickly by innovating as the first company to put gauges on pumps, the first company to produce a true 'high-pressure' frame pump, the first to work with the revolutionary lightweight material plastic after the end of WWII. – I was lucky to be able to co-operate with Chris McDougal on a blog article on Silca. He asked me is is able to shoot the tools directly while cycling in the Moravian Karst. We had a really great day outhere in autumnal mood.
