The company was founded in 1969 by Franco Selvatici and has always been characterised from the outset by the production of high-tech tools for intensive, high-productivity agriculture. The historic headquarters have always remained in the province of Bologna. Since 2014, engineer Lorenzo Selvatici (the founder's son) has been president of Selvatici srl. The company specialises in the production of agricultural machinery for soil preparation such as spading machines, bivangas, post hole diggers and rear scrapers. In addition, there is a line for professional gardening including aerators and sand spreaders. New implements have recently been introduced to the range, such as spading machines for two-wheel tractors, stone buriers, bed formers, a small range of subsoilers and chain shredders, both fixed and movable.
