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. More recently, the company was
first with a valve controlled CO2 inflator, and with some irony, the first to move away
from plastics and back to wood handles. Along the way, the company ideals became deeply rooted
in a combination of durable materials, traditional craftsmanship, and innovation.
It is no accident that so many of the SILCA pumps of the 1960's and 70's are still in use today,
nor is it accidental that they continue to sell replacement parts for those very pumps.
In 2014, SILCA headquarters and manufacturing moved to Indianapolis, Indiana,
USA where they still are today. There, they are rebuilding a once great icon into a new great icon.
They use the finest materials and craftsmanship achievable in our products.
Each and every SILCA component is designed for beauty, function, strength, durability,
and longevity before it is carefully produced by hand to the highest standards.
They take great pride in upholding the 101-year history of this brand.
