SFA was established in 1992 as SOCIETÀ FERROVIARIA ADRIATICA with the aim of operating in the field of remediation of railway carriages contaminated by asbestos.

In 1995, SOCIETA’ FERROVIARIA ADRIATICA, as a result of changes to the company shareholder structure and the transfer of the head office to the province of Venice, took the name of SFA spa (in short) and expanded its range of services by adding asbestos abatement on industrial and civil structures and land remediation and reclamation. Few companies operating in Italy today can boast such a significant and important past.

At the end of 2014, SFA further enlarged its capacity to meet the demands of the market by expanding its corporate structure, the structural change of means of governance and control, and the recruitment of new professionals. Despite all the changes, one common denominator remained: the historic brand SFA.

In 2016, the shareholders decided to transform the company into an S.p.A. (joint-stock company), thus further improving the company’s organisational and control structure and expanding its national market with initiatives of an international nature.
