Creating an important structure in the agricultural machinery sector with a full-line of products to meet the needs of customers in terms of range of products, and the widest possible penetration of global markets has always been Luigi Blasi and Carlo Tonutti’s industrial and commercial vision. From this point of view, the two entrepreneurs entered into an agreement that unites the companies of Carlo Tonutti – Tonutti and Wolagri brands – to the companies of Luigi Blasi – Bargam, Projet, Oma, Rimeco, Agricom, Protek brands.
Carlo Tonutti, the president of Tonutti Wolagri, a company of deep and acknowledged origins founded in 1864 by the Knight of Labour Gino Tonutti and a leading company in the production of haymaking machines with major production and sales realities in the United States and Russia, commented, “With this agreement, our distribution network has reached a considerable capillarity that enables us to be even more incisive in our marketing and product range policies. Our industrial aggregation project has taken another step forward and has strengthened our position on the international market, fostered and increased our cross-selling abilities, enabled the group to grow and has given us a complete and excellent product line.”
Luigi Blasi president of the Progroup affirmed, “taking part in Tonutti Wolagri is the result of a share of intent with its president Carlo Tonutti, a serious, professional, competent and respected person. This will lead to important industrial and commercial synergies, advantages in the research and development of new products and new technologies, and a greater presence and penetration of both national and international markets.” Blasi also adds, “I am very pleased for having entered into this agreement with Carlo Tonutti. The growth process of the companies will continue with more acquisitions or mergers in order to further broaden the product range and strengthen the market presence.”
As part of the aforementioned operation, the new group can rely on the cooperation of 500 employees working at 5 branches throughout the world and 7 production units with 85,000 square meters of industrial plants located in Imola-Bologna, Remanzacco-Udine, Jesi-Ancona, Manduria-Taranto, Suzzara-Mantua and Memphis-USA. There is also another site in Krasnokamsk in Russia operating since 1995, where the production capacity is continuing to expand.
These are the new numbers of the new aggregate formed by the combination of Blasi and Tonutti, entrepreneurs who always have the Made In Italy quality and Italian economy of agricultural equipment at heart.
This new configuration will not only enable the company to strengthen its presence on the domestic market, but also to expand and strengthen its international presence. From the United States to Russia while passing through the Italian quality and know-how, this is the real strength of the new reality.
With Tonutti Wolagri, the range of products is increased with high quality haymaking products. The jewels now range from the Bargam mechanical weeding equipment, Projet sprayer machines, Oma pollinators and sprayers, Rimeco self-propelled sprayers and harvesters, Tonutti hay mowers and rakes, Wolagri balers and wrappers and Protek spraying components. ###
