    Our roots

    Our history is the story of a family. It was in the 1970s that Manlio Settimi's dream began with the opening of the historic retail shop in Spoleto..., becoming over the years a real landmark in the area for the sale of agricultural and gardening machinery. Professionals and hobbyists in the industry of Spoleto knew they would find in Manlio an undisputed reference and a true expert in green care equipment, always willing and ready to listen to customers' needs. The core values of the Settimi shop's history are precisely the competence and industry knowledge together with customer focus, a vision that lays the foundations for AgriEuro's future development.

    AgriEuro E-commerce Idea

    The idea

    The shop was the first great starting point while a purchase on Ebay.it was the unexpected turn. Always at Manlio's side, his children Filippo, Alessia and Alessandra have carried on the family business over the years..... Especially his passion for marketing and IT cultivated by Filippo led the Company towards an unexpected transformation. With the advent of digital technologies and first marketplaces the purchase procedure became quickly immediate and unrestricted. It is precisely through the purchase of a photocopier on Ebay.it that Filippo found the opportunities offered by the new online marketplace and opened him up to the possibility of entering it. The aim was to extend the family business to the new digital frontiers, decoding the new sales tools in the best possible way. Thus, in 2007, products also became available online on Ebay.it - the reference market place of that period. The technical skills acquired by Filippo during his years in the retail shop, together with his knowledge of the reference customer and the main repair operations, thus met the opportunities offered by the new digital platforms. A winning formula that still constitutes AgriEuro's distinctive strength today.

    The first AgriEuro headquarters

    The family business quickly became a corporate brand. The positive feedback from the first online sales led Filippo to recognise the success of his great business vision and to officially found the brand AgriEuro in 2008, together with his sisters Alessia and Alessandra.... The corporate website – www.agrieuro.com – was launched in the same year and already after a few months the online sales exceeded those of the retail shop, thus making it necessary to create a space dedicated exclusively to AgriEuro's administrative and logistical headquarters. Thus in Spoleto, not far from the historic shop, it was purchased an old mill, which was to become the Company's first office building, a 3.000 s.q. m. distribution centre and a 1.000 s.q. m. workshop for machine repair. Agrieuro.com grew quickly and in 2010 - only 2 years after its launch - it exceeded Ebay.it in terms of selling their products. The significant increase of the own e-commerce channel reach led the need for a first outsourced logistics service that opened in Città di Castello. It was an extremely positive moment for the Company that would have seen its sales tripling year by year up to 2012.

    The international development

    The company consolidated and in 2012 decided to open up to the international market. AgriEuro officially entered into the French, German, Spanish and English market with dedicated websites.

    The launch of proprietary brands

    In 2013 AgriEuro launched its first proprietary brand lines. Thus were born the GeoTech and GeoTech-Pro brands, which products are manufactured in China according to European technical and commercial requirements and CE safety standards.... At the same time, the AgriEuro Premium, AgriEuro TOP-LINE and Seven Italy brands were developed - all featuring top quality Italian-made production. Today, AgriEuro's proprietary brand lines have taken on a decisive impact on the Company's overall sales volume and represent an extremely important competitive advantage for the Company.

    Since 2017 AgriEuro has established itself as leader in Italy in the agriculture and gardening machineries industry. The key position reached by the brand as Italy's first e-commerce in the industry coincides with the inauguration of the new administrative headquarters in Spoleto..., officially launched in 2018. A building featuring a modern and refined design which offers a professional and inspirational environment for its team, which today consists of more than 150 employees. The 2020 marked an extraordinary growth for AgriEuro, which saw a 70% increase in turnover compared to the previous year. At the same time, a restyling of the brand and desktop site was underway, leading to a new interface and a redesigned logo. A new mobile site was also launched in 2022 to offer customers an even easier and more immediate purchase experience. Today, the company has over 8,.00 products in its catalogue and 5 distribution centres: 1 under direct management in Spoleto and 4 in outsourcing (Bologna, Novara, Spoleto and Piacenza), for a total of 68.000 s.q. m. of covered warehouses.
