Our history dates back to


Ercole Achilli, the father of current owners Marco and Davide Achilli, started a small metalworking firm. The business began in a tiny workshop and within a few years, it specialized in the production of floor grinding machines.

Ercole, supported by his wife Sara, was able to expand into foreign markets thanks to his participation in countless international trade shows. The export of his floor grinders increased exponentially abroad.
This first expansion stage allowed the company to develop and enter new markets by starting the production of new products such as the portable bench saws for building materials and, later on, the bridge saws for stone fabricators.

After many years of expansion, Achilli has maintained a family atmosphere despite reaching a leading position in the field. Today, the company is managed by Ercole's sons: Marco, who oversees technical, R&D, and production management, and Davide, who leads the administrative and commercial areas.
