Backed up by 23 years of experience, Gi.Erre manages a number of service-related activities on its Castelfranco site, including servicing and maintenance of machines, rentals, and finalisation of certain custom models. The company achieved a turnover of €3.6 million in 2021 with a workforce of 14 employees.

We are proud to be bringing all of the teams into the Manitou Group. With this acquisition, the sustainability of the service activity in the region is ensured”.

Gerardo Giacomino, Gi.erre managing director, added, “Passion for what we do and the reliability of our expertise are values we share with Manitou Group. We also both have a family structure, which helps bring us closer together. I’m delighted to see our company develop within Manitou Group.”
