Founded in Italy in 1947, CISA was one of the first companies to develop sterilization autoclaves for the healthcare industry.

CISA is an international group based in Lucca, Italy, operating through CISA Production, with production facilities and sales offices in Italy and Brazil.

Today it ranks among the 7 main companies worldwide that are active in this field. In accordance with the principles of Industry 4.0, the entire range of CISA products is subject to continuous re-engineering and the development of innovative solutions for energy and water saving in hospitals, with the application of new criteria, which, from architectural layout to technical design and construction, are intended for the progressive transformation of the hospital to the benefit of patients and running costs. Thanks to its expertise and the significant resources that are dedicated annually to Research & Development, CISA has been playing an increasingly important role in the field of Infection Control System for some years now, transferring the technologies implemented in the CSSD to a series of products designed specifically for the smart hospital, but also extremely effective for private companies or public facilities.

The spread of the Covid-19 pandemic has made CISA products an object of growing interest: CISA is in fact one of the Italian companies to be admitted to CuraItalia, the national project to support anti-Covid investments.

CISA today can count on a group of 85 employees in Italy and 70 in Brazil, 30 engineers and an annual research and development investment index that grows by 8% annually.

Cisa has always been at the forefront of infection control and, even more so during this outbreak, has been close to all hospital staff to whom it has provided constant support.
Cisa has created a new video “Cisa Heroes” to thank all healthcare professionals: they are the heroes of our time and their commitment in making hospitals safer places truly represents the Cisa payoff "We care about life". Watch the video
