History

BOLZONI
Founded in 1945 by Luigi and Livio BOLZONI for the production of agricultural machinery. In the early 50s BOLZONI entered the attachment world with a brick transportation system and subsequently, fork lift truck attachments became the core business. In the 80s BOLZONI merged with the Teko company adding lifting tables and hand pallet trucks to its product range. During the following years further boost to the company’s growth was given through the development of a worldwide network of subsidiaries and dealers, as well as strategic acquisitions resulting in BOLZONI’s leading market position. Since 2006 BOLZONI is listed in the Star segment of the Milan Stock Exchange.
AURAMO
Founded in Finland by Hannu Auramo in 1947 originally as an engineering agency, AURAMO started manufacturing industrial cylinders and developing warehouse floor materials solutions. In the 60s AURAMO began producing a whole range of attachments for all industrial material handling applications, with specific focus on the forest products and the paper industry. Developing and producing paper roll clamps, bale clamps and other specialized handling attachments, the company soon became the worldwide recognized paper handling specialist. Since 2001 AURAMO is a BOLZONI Group company.

Founded in Germany by Hans H. Meyer in 1953, MEYER represents a long tradition in the lift truck attachment industry with an excellent brand image. In the course of the years, thanks to active R&D and innovative ideas, MEYER has largely contributed to the development of what today are this industry’s standards. Many attachments such as rotators, fork positioners, clamps and, in particular, the highly successful and greatly appreciated multiple pallet handler range, were initially invented and further developed by MEYER.
