Agritech, twenty years at Agritechnica – The Calvisano company at the Hanover fair


For this company, specialists in the production of fiberglass silos, German sales account for 20% of company turnover. Over the past few weeks, in addition to their participation at Hanover, this relatively small industrial company guided by Floriano Zappettini, was also present at the Farmer Expo in Krasnodar (Russia) and at the Agrilink in Manila (Philippines).

The Agritech company, headquartered in Calvisano (Italy), specialists in the production of fiberglass silos and equipment for agricultural and livestock breeding operations, this year celebrated 20 years of participation at the Hanover Agritechnica Fair. This biennial international exhibition, considered the most important in the agricultural machinery business took place in the German city in November.

We are always present at this fair – explains company President Floriano Zappettinibecause Germany is our principal export market valued at 20% of our turnover. Moreover – he continued – it is a meeting point for the entire worldwide agricultural mechanization sector”.

At Hanover – adds Export Manager Mario Ardenghi we always meet distributors from all over the world and establish new business relationships”.

One of the products from the Agritech range that was particularly successful at the German show was their easily transportable small “Cubo” silos. These can be used in Northern Europe for non- agricultural usages such as storage tanks for the salt that is sprinkled on icy roads in wintertime.

Agritech which is about to end 2017 with increased turnover pursues its international ambitions by participating in trade fairs across the globe.

In the weeks preceding Hanover the staff from the Brescia company participated for the third time at the Farmer Expo in Krasnodar (Southern Russia) and for the first time at Agrilink in Manila (Philippines).

Product innovation and increased market share across world markets remain the company’s watchwords.

We are about to conclude a year with revenues at least in line with 2016 if not slightly higher – says Mr Zappettini – helped along by exports but also by positive signs from Italy thanks to increases in milk and pig prices and the new Rural Development plan. We will continue on our path to have a presence in overseas markets as this has always been a reference point for the Agritech company. We were one of the first companies to believe in the Agritechnica Fair – concludes the company President – and will continue to do so given the ever-growing numbers that are recorded as being more than 450,000 visitors coming from 115 countries”.
