The passion for innovation has always been the driving force behind the Pieralisi Group. This is just as true today as at the outset when Adeodato Pieralisi set up his first workshop in the small town of Monsano in 1888, the start of this family-run manufacturing business.
From thepost-war period onwards, the Group’s main plant in Jesi has specialised in olive oil machinery and what was once a family-run manufacturing business became an industrial enterprise with a solid organization.
In the 1960’s, Pieralisi revolutionised traditional olive oil extraction systems, conquering domestic and international markets with the first decanter for olive-oil continuous processing. Starting in the 1970’s, Pieralisi moved into new sectors of the market.
The Group’s large experience and know-how in the olive oil sector led Pieralisi to offer centrifugal force as a rational solution to production processes in a wide range of food-processing and industrial sectors. The Group’s success was so rapid that, in just a few years, it established itself as the world’s leader company in centrifugation.
Pieralisi’s constant commitment to research and development of advanced technologies has meant that the Group is now the indisputable leader in providing avant-garde separation solutions through centrifugal force.
Great attention to the needs of a wide-ranging international customer base has led the Pieralisi Group to dedicate human resources and specific technology to the needs of each and every customer. To this aim, the Group has adopted a business organization based on two large divisions: the Olive Oil Division and the Separation Solutions Division.
Olive Oil Division
The key to Pieralisi’s success in the olive oil sector is the continual testing of innovative high-tech solutions aimed at increasing customers’ olive oil yield and quality. This commitment dates back to Pieralisi’s introduction of the first continuous-processing decanter that revolutionized the olive oil extraction process.
Still today the Group provides the olive oil extraction industry with modern plants that are automatically able to handle all processing stages and to keep track of all data for complete traceability of the product.
