Fieni: 70 years of innovation
and dedication to agriculture

The story so far

Emilia Romagna has always been a region strongly committed to agriculture and mechanical engineering.

In this place, more precisely in Altedo, in Bologna province, Giovanni Fieni started manufacturing agricultural pumps in 1950, taking advantage of his own experience as a flight engineer in the Air Force during the second world war.

The development of agricultural automation and the collaboration with his sons led to the idea of designing and constructing fan units for agricultural sprayers that will become the core product for the company. The success of the new product is immediate and obvious during the first participations to the sector trade fairs.

The creativity that characterizes Fieni can be seen in the launch of new products but also in the constant research and development that step aside the daily production: new applications and customizations that become innovative patented products.

Today Fieni is a company with 70 years experience, that thanks to the contribution of new generations, to technological development and to solid partnerships with its customers, exports and is appreciated all over the world.
