Twenties – Fifties
Alfredo Melandri and Luigi Deggiovanni, before agricultural machinery producers on behalf of third parties, started designing and producing two screws continuous presses and vertical hydraulic presses for grape pressing.
Then Deggiovanni & Melandri company was established.
The company extended its production of machinery for the wine-making field. The first Florsvin-Enotork unit for grape continuous pressing, “Velocipressa” and press for distillery were worked out. This production was sold to the main Italian wineries and abroad in the main foreign countries producing wine.
Diemme SpA Costruzioni Enolmeccaniche company was established from Deggiovanni & Melandri and moved to Lugo (RA), Via Bedazzo.
The new company lived a great growth in the wine-making field. The Florsvin Enotork 780 – 670 – 600 continuous lines range was extended and it met with the general approval. More equipment for wine-making process in the filtration, thermo-vinification, flotation and destemming field were worked out.
An independent company Filtri Diemme SpA was established for manufacturing plate filter press for the wine-making field and civil/industrial purification.
The Diemme SpA Costruzioni Enolmeccaniche and Filtri Diemme SpA companies merged in only one company named DIEMME SpA. Two independent branches of business were born, Winemaking Division and Filtration Division, which developed respectively their business with new technologies and markets.
The two Melandri brothers, Nino and Rino continue being the only shareholders and developing DIEMME SpA.
