In 1920, at the end of World War I, Giovanni De Pietri founded a small handicraft firm for repairing agricultural equipment. He exploited the experience he had gained in the army’s machine shops during the First World War and manufactured tools that were considered to be in the van by that time, thus quickly becoming a point of reference for local and neighbouring farmers. The firm is currently run by Galeano De Pietri and by his sons Gabriele and Giacomo (son and grandsons of one of the company founders), and it has been able to innovate and maintain its presence in an ever-evolving market, increasing its production with a complete line of harvesters-loaders and equipment for the sector of fourth range and industrial fresh vegetables. Our machines are able to meet the requirements of any crop in the field of horticulture and agriculture. We operate in markets all over the world, always guaranteeing our high quality standard.
His passion for mechanics was passed on to his two sons Amilcare and Remigio who, in the period between the 1940s and the 1950s, expanded the activity by alternating between building machine manufacturing and agricultural machinery repairing.
In 1960, the two brothers turned their back on the production of building machines and officially founded the firm De Pietri, inventing the innovative green forage self-propelled harvester-loader for picking up green fodder for bovine feeding. This machine was not only an absolute innovation at world level but also a huge success. It also substantially contributed to launch the De Pietri brand on all markets, thus allowing the company to become well known, to grow and to develop products that became more and more valued.
The entrance of sons Galeano and Fernando into the firm further increased, over the years, the production of agricultural equipment such as self-propelled and frontal mowing-conditioning machines, reversible-drive tractors and industrial harvesters-loaders for vegetables; everything manufactured and produced inside the plant by highly qualified personnel.
The company today
Thanks to its specialisation and the experience gained over four generations for more than 60 years, De Pietri has known how to make its name in the world market, earning itself a reputation as historical manufacturer of innovative and reliable machines always characterised by a unique factor:
