The history of the AGGELIS company begun in 1970, when Anastasios Aggelis -who worked at the time as a technician at the olive oil mill constructions- started to wonder, while watching the workers beating the trees with wooden rods, why hasn’t there been a user friendly harvesting device that would bring the fruit to the ground more easily, even though in Greece the olive tree has been widely cultivated. He then started to reflect on the movement of the rod that for many centuries has been used by the workers, in order to bring the fruit to the ground and he conceived the idea of the vibrating motion, which has become the foundation for all the olive harvesting devices, ours and others’. He started off using an air motor, then an oil one and finally a DC power motor.

Over time we have managed to refine the first vibrating harvest rake in the world. The harvest rake that still holds the number one spot in Greece’s heart and olive groves.
Our love for the olive tree as well as the meticulousness of our work has led the way to the development of the next 5 harvesting devices. They are all innovative, offer many advantages and are always ahead of their time. Their durability along with a great performance makes them the first choice of the Greek farmer.
