The origins date to more than three centuries ago, when the Pellegrini family started extracting the “Rosso Verona” marble in Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella. About 60 years ago, the young man Marco Pellegrini, at that time just graduated in industrial engineering, designed and assembled the first machines to ease the job in his Family’s quarry. Soon these products were recognized and adopted by other quarrymen, and “La Sant’Ambrogio” (the name of the first company) grew rapidly. Today Pellegrini has become a market leader, thank to quality products, a complete range and a high level of service by a team of engineers, geologists and technicians.
Marco Pellegrini, honorary chairman of the Pellegrini Meccanica SpA group, was one of the eight “magnificent” founders, in 1960, of the International Marble Exhibition of Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella, an active President of ACIMM (Italian Marble Machinery Manufacturers’ Association) from 1973 until 1983 and is still honorary President today.He was the chairman of the 11th workshop which, within the European Standardization Committee (CEN), from middle Eighties to 1994, drafted the technical standards for stone quarrying and processing equipment, allowing application of the EC mark.
Today Pellegrini Meccanica SpA is led by his daughter Dr. Elena Pellegrini, who has further developed Company strategy with the help of valued technicians and team mates, with the same style and charisma as our founder.
To encourage specialization and world market penetration, the Pellegrini Group has created in recent years, four brand divisions. Each is focused and dedicated to design, marketing and servicing specific equipment for various phases of stone processing. In common, the four divisions concentrate on high quality machines for quality and volume production, with continuous research, development and application of new technologies.
