Passion, reliability and professionalism
Our history started in 1945 in Passignano sul Trasimeno in Umbria, the green heart of Italy. Our company was started as a mainly artisan enterprise for maintenance, services and assistance.
Over the years we have expanded our business to include checking, designing and producing ordinary and special vehicles. Cutting-edge technological development is still our trademark, with a set of developments and changes, geared towards specific products which sum up the know-how we have acquired.
In the 1970s we moved to our current premises: about 80,000 m2, of which 15,000 indoors and divided into several departments.
Constant progress, from both a quality and quantity perspective, has led us at Rampini to becoming a major manufacturing industry among Italian small and medium-sized enterprises.
Our company is characterised by a highly qualified workforce, consisting of staff which has been working with us for years, offering constantly upgraded professional skills. This element, combined with a pool of cutting-edge machinery and with the experience acquired over 70 years, have led to comprehensive know-how: research, development, design and manufacturing.
Always innovative design, aimed in particular at setting the standard for the public transport industry in the future.
Rampini was established as a family-run business in 1945 in the heart of Italy, in Umbria, at Passignano sul Trasimeno. On the 24th of April, Carlo Rampini and Fernanda Pepini founded this Company, making the most of their experience acquired in the field of mechanics and hydraulics. They started focusing on maintenance and inspection of ordinary and special vehicles, services and assistance.
The Company began expanding its business to the design and manufacturing of ordinary and special vehicles. The first industrial sheds were built.
In the 1970s the company moved to its current premised: about 80.000 m2, of which 15,000 indoors and divided into various departments.
Production development continues, as the successful factor for a company which has grown one step after another. Its specialization focuses on specific products which sum up the know-how it has acquired. It starts to design and manufacture special vehicles and equipment for military uses, firefighting transport and support equipment on the ground for both military and civilian airports. Know-how in the mechanical, hydraulic, electrical and electronic field are greatly expanded, alongside the ability to connect and integrate them.
Soon after the year 2000 we expanded our business to the design and production of urban buses with special integrated features (electrically and fuel-cell powered), now driven all along the roads of Italy and Europe.
Moreover we have continued to design and produce means of transport and equipment for the civilian and military sector, as well as working on vehicle electrification both on the ground – for example those used to collect and transport urban waste – and at sea.
All our products are technologically advanced and highly customised.
