Our history and our mission
Breviglieri was founded in 1949 by Oreste Breviglieri, an ingenious young entrepreneur who, having observed first-hand the difficulties and hardships of work in the fields, demonstrated great commitment, obstinacy and enthusiasm in setting up a business to create products that make agricultural work easier.
With remarkable foresight, he designed a new concept of equipment in the PTO-driven soil-working machinery segment, making a significant contribution to facilitating the transition from traditional to mechanised farming.
Over the years the company has continued its tradition of continuous product innovation, leading to the award of numerous international patents.
It has also continued to attract a broad base of discerning customers intent on making a good return on their equipment investment.
This has enabled Breviglieri to expand and reach beyond national borders, transforming into a business which currently exports 75% of its production to many countries worldwide.
Breviglieri - High-quality products
Today Breviglieri is a brand with a sterling reputation for its range of high-quality products, as well as for the excellence of its continuous research, the growth of its human resources, its sense of responsibility and its close contact with customers and the market.
These are our main guidelines, genuine opportunities for the company’s development and the guarantee of our future success.
The rapid evolution of the world markets is transforming the needs of the agricultural industry, as well as changing demand: in addition to utilising traditional sales channels (dealers, distributors, importers), in recent years the company has established solid partnerships as an OEM supplier to a number of major European manufacturers.
These firms, leaders in their segment, require suppliers who are able to provide suitable solutions and represent another growth driver for Breviglieri, as well as helping to shape its corporate culture.
The key elements which define the company and its mission are the resolve to pursue the continuous improvement of product quality and the production process, flexibility and, not least, the cohesion and pride of a medium-sized, independent family business which is nevertheless supported by an expert managerial organisation.
In March 2016, Breviglieri Company joined the Agrimaster Group.
In May 2018, with a merger by incorporation, Breviglieri S.p.A. has become DEMETRA S.p.A..
