Antonio Carraro spa is a historic company based in Campodarsego, in the province of Padua at the heart of the Italian northeast. It all began in 1910 when Giovanni Carraro (1890-1982), a 19-year-old blacksmith, presented his first multi-functional agricultural machine at the 1st Agricultural Industrial Exhibition in Padua. His machine was able to plow, mill, erect, roll and sow, and earned him the Certificate of "encouragement and honorable mention" *. In 1960, Giovanni's sons split up to form two separate companies: Carraro spa (leader in the production of axles and components for tractors) and Antonio Carraro spa, specialised in the production of compact 4-wheel drive tractors from 20 to 100 HP.
Since the '70s, Antonio Carraro has been the leading manufacturer in Italy of compact isodiametric tractors from 20 to 100 HP. The company offers more than 80 models, some based on unique technical solutions. Agricultural operators appreciate the range of tractors for its reliability, specialisation, design and comfort, and method of construction based on "lean" principles (introduced in 1999 with training by Porsche Consulting) which allows for further innovation and flexible production and, therefore, the possibility of making each tractor "to measure" for the buyer. The company, currently experiencing a period of significant expansion as the result of an ongoing business plan (2017-2021), employs 380 people, a number set to increase. Of these, about 45 work in the Research and Development department. Over the years, Antonio Carraro has always stood out above the competition garnering dozens of prizes and awards for its pioneering vocation for original and avant-garde tractors in the sector of specialised agriculture and civil maintenance.
AC exports 65% of its production to 36 different countries. For marketing, it uses a network of dealers and importers with more than 600 points of sale and 4 branches in Spain, France, Turkey and Oceania.
