History

The first Dulevo sweeper prototype

Over 40 years have passed since a group of technicians designed the first prototype of the historic 120 model, in a small garage in Parma back in 1976. Little did they know that in that first small production workshop, they gave life to a history of tradition, passion and technology which continues strong today.

Indeed, the market showed an immediate and overwhelming appreciation of machines created by the new born Dulevo. The brand rapidly spread throughout Europe.

The company opened its first plant in 1982, at its historic Sanguinaro site, heralding a demanding period of consolidation on markets and featuring the recently designed 200 and 500 models.

The birth of Dulevo International

Dulevo entered the Lampogas Group in 1991, reinforcing its drive for becoming a top Italian and European manufacturer in the industrial and urban cleaning sector.

Indeed this moment heralded the beginning of intense research and development activity, culminating in product industrialisation and the creation of an array of new models in all market segments.

Today, the new industrial site contains one of the world's most advanced manufacturing plants, with a total of 200,000 m2, including a 20,000 m2 production area as well as a state-of-the-art research and development facility, where future models are constantly developed.

The great breakthrough

The great breakthrough occurred in January 2013, with the Lampogas SpA corporate restructuring process: 4D Global Energy Investments Plc. became a majority shareholder of Lampogas and therefore of Dulevo. Tighe Noonan, founding partner of 4DGEA, became the entire group's President and CEO.

Unique cleaning machines created by unique people

Mechanical excellence is palpable in Emilia Romagna, where it manifests itself as a widespread and peculiar know-how.

Dulevo is a synonym for quality machinery and above all, people. People who believe that their own products are the best, but who wish to improve them all the same. People who consider themselves to be part of the Dulevo family.

The first site was operated by a handful of technicians. Today, the company boasts a staff of over 200 professionals, some of whom have been working for Dulevo for over forty years.

Our strength lies in a consolidated network of suppliers and external collaborators, whose knowledge guarantees full compliance with production and delivery schedules.
