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 the post-war period onwards, the Group’s main plant in Jesi has specialised in olive oil machinery. In the 1960s, Pieralisi revolutionised traditional olive oil extraction systems, conquering domestic and international markets with the first decanter for olive-oil continuous processing. Starting in the 1970s, 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. Today the Pieralisi Group is an integrated business system oriented towards the global market, with a great capacity for innovation. The Group includes 19 production and commercial companies, strategically located in Italy, Spain, Greece, Germany, Netherlands, USA, Brazil, China, Tunisia, Russia and France. Working in synergy with the headquarters in Jesi, they generate turnover in excess of € 140 million, with a workforce of over 650 people. Thanks to its widespread network of agents, service centres and spare-parts stores, Pieralisi is truly worldwide and close to its over 26,000 customers, with its specific know-how for every specific market, country and sector of operation. Our mission: 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. Our mission is to create added value for our customers through the offer of targeted solutions for every specific requirement. 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 organisation based on two large divisions: SEPARATION SOLUTIONS The Pieralisi Group provides solutions to all technological problems of solid-liquid and solid liquid- liquid separation, thanks to the great experience and know-how developed over time in the most important industrial centrifuge markets. Pieralisi decanters and vertical centrifuges with a wide variety of capacities are suitable for a vast range of application areas, such as environmental, chemical, recycling, oleo-chemical, mineral-fuel and lube oils, animal-based products, food and beverage and milk and dairy area. OLIVE OIL The key to Pieralisi’s success in the olive oil sector is the continual testing of innovative high-tech solutions aimed at increasing the customers’ olive oil yield and quality. This commitment dates back to the 1960’s, when Pieralisi introduced the first continuous processing decanter that revolutionised the olive oil extraction process, thus becoming the world leader in the production of continuous cycle machinery. 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. The Pieralisi Group is the only company in the sector that can provide every client with its own “turnkey system”. We design and manufacture our equipment from start to finish, producing machinery for each phase of olive processing, from destemming and washing to crushing, kneading, extraction and separation.
