This is when the history of EMANUEL begins. We were founded in Turin, Italy with the name “Società Commerciale Giovanni Emanuel & Comp”. Initially the only equipment was a lathe to repair farm machines.
The company started working for the newborn automobile industry and the years after it started producing equipment, such as small hydraulic jacks for maintenance of auto vehicles.
After WWII the factory was completely rebuilt after it was severely damaged during the war. During the 60’s and 70’s EMANUEL became leader in Italy and one the first companies in Europe selling lifting equipment’s, car washing plants and compressors.
During the oil crisis, EMANUEL was forced to close the factories in Turin and the company was acquired by Mr. Dario Manzini, one of the most important distributors of EMANUEL in Italy. The company was then moved to Bologna where a new production of lifting equipment and car wash plants began
EMANUEL started specializing in the industrial vehicles lifting equipment’s. The main focus of the company has always been to offer a reliable, high quality product and to offer a good service to all its clients
