Founded by Mario Casaro in 1921, this coachwork was specialized in light bodies for Fiat, Lancia and others. Casaro achieved the exclusive license for the italian market of the patented Kelsch, a patented alternative to the Weymann and built a plant in c.so Trapani 107 at Turin in 1926. During the 1929 financial crisis Casaro lost a lot of orders, so he sold the patented Kelsch to Boneschi and part of the plant to Pininfarina. During the '30s he focused his production to the industrial vehicles, with the new company CA.SA.RO. In 1935 he bought the patented Wood from the USA and first in Europe began to produce buses with load bearing frames, curved windscreen and pneumatic doors. Then he sold the rest of the plant to Pininfarina and built another one outside Turin. After the WWII the new company Autocostruzioni Casaro introduced on the italian market small buses with rear engine and the famous Tubocar bus, the lighter city bus of the period. In 1958 Viberti bought the company and transformed it in the SEAC (Società Esercizio Auto Costruzioni), creating a technical branch specialized in the research of new methods and materials for the development of the bus. The Comm. Casaro was putted in charge as technical executive director.
