A brief history of Raimondi
In 1863, Raimondi’s founder, Rodolfo Raimondi, saw an opportunity to produce the first transmission equipment used in a cotton mill in Legnano, a city where the company’s headquarters are still based. In the following century, particularly after the WWII, Raimondi devoted itself to helping rebuild Italy through the manufacture of construction equipment from concrete mixers to tower cranes. Since 1946, Raimondi has focused on the production of tower cranes. Currently, Raimondi’s precision heavy lifting machinery can be found on the world’s foremost jobsites.
