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 the first small production workshop, they gave rise to a history of tradition, passion and technology which still goes on strong today.
Indeed, the market showed immediate and overwhelming appreciation of the machines produced by the newly established Dulevo. The brand rapidly spread throughout Europe.
The company opened its first facility in 1982, at its historic Sanguinaro site, producing the recently designed 200 and 500 models, and heralding a demanding period of consolidation on the market.
The birth of Dulevo International
Dulevo joined the Lampogas Group in 1991, strengthening its drive towards becoming a leading Italian and European manufacturer in the industrial and urban sweeping sector.
Indeed this heralded the beginning of intensive research and development, leading to product engineering and production of a range of new models in all market segments.
Today, the new industrial site is one of the world's most advanced manufacturing facilities, with a total of 2,150,000 sq feet, including a 215,000 sq feet 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 was in January 2013, with the corporate restructuring process of Lampogas SpA: 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 sweeping machines developed by unique people
Mechanical prowess is tangible in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy, where it is evidenced as widespread and distinctive know-how.
Dulevo stands for quality machinery and above all, skilled people. People who believe in their products’ excellence, but still wish to improve them all the time. People who consider themselves to be part of the Dulevo family.
