Officine Minelli was founded in 1956 by the four brothers Abele, Renato, Vittorino and Francesco Minelli, who immediately showed entrepreneurial capacities and strong determination. At a time of notable economic and industrial expansion, they began to deal in metal structures and metalwork for the building trade, creating among other things the original workshops which were to bear their name.

Officine Minelli was founded in 1956 by the four brothers Abele, Renato, Vittorino and Francesco Minelli, who immediately showed entrepreneurial capacities and strong determination. At a time of notable economic and industrial expansion, they began to deal in metal structures and metalwork for the building trade, creating among other things the original workshops which were to bear their name.

Following this the idea which was to become their vocation began to take form: the construction of loaders and other equipment for agriculture, leading to the creation of their first loader for scrap-metal movement.

Still today, Officine Minelli upholds its tradition of dealing directly with its customers, avoiding intermediation by a commercial network, as well as pursuing and maintaining the company philosophy favoured by its founders and now a fundamental part of its present-day management.

The intense dedication maintained during over 50 years of activity is translated today into a complete range of loaders extending from 16 to 44 tonnes, each of which bears traces of the original project.

From an annual machine production of a score or so, Officine Minelli now produces around a hundred loaders per year, created efficiently and to industrial standards, but with a careful attention to their construction and with a craftsmanlike passion for every aspect, inherited from the days when every machine was a one-off.

Today we concentrate our efforts on developing the product technologically and increasing user-friendliness; as well as reliability, our research is now concerned with more powerful and swifter machines, with increasingly long arms and greater load capacity.

Our great concern for technology is shown, not only by our busy and fruitful collaboration with a number of Engineering Faculties, but also by our periodical meetings with the technicians of our suppliers, during which we test and refine new products and new solutions.
