Campagnola turnover: 14 million achieved

Focusing on the development of electromechanical technologies, without abandoning the core business of pneumatic equipment. This is the objective that the Bologna company Campagnola (the headquarters are in Zola Predosa), specializing in tools for pruning and harvesting olives, has set for 2019. With this goal, the management team’s intention is to allow the company to further consolidate its position on international markets. After all, 2018 ended with a brilliant result: turnover reached 14 million euros, 54% of which in Italy, while the production plant reached a surface area of 8 thousand square metres, to better take on the national and foreign markets. “We aimed to reach 16 million euros, with a foreign share of 60% - explains Vanni Roncagli, Campagnola sales director - but some factors, including meteorological factors in particular, slowed down purchases. However, thanks to our presence on international markets we managed to balance and absorb the crisis situations, without stopping our growth path”. The Emilian team has withstood the current economic conditions also due to its production range, designed to satisfy an increasingly diversified demand. It has been equally attentive to the value for money and the innovative content of the technologies on offer. And indeed, alongside its traditional bestsellers - the Alice electric shears that have been popular for over 10 years, or the Cobra model with 4-year warranty - the Campagnola catalogue can also boast high tech latest generation products. This is the case for the Line 44 series which includes a tying machine and electric pruning shears, or the Line 58 range which, presented at EIMA International 2018, includes a single lithium-ion battery to power all the tools intended for pruning and harvesting olives. “Our equipment - comments Roncagli - is the result of a careful process of design, analysis and testing, aimed at reducing time and operational effort”.
