Unsere Geschichte

Unsere Geschichte - O.R.M.A. S.R.L.

Since 1974, manufacturers of irrigation machines and equipment, but our history began earlier, in 1960...

Felice Marzocchi was born in 1934 in a farmer family in Giardino, a small village on the border between Emilia and Romagna (in the province of Bologna). As a teen-ager he was more interested in mechanics rather than in rural life.

After completing his studies, he served in the army in Modena where he drove  armours. Then he moved to Milan where he lived from 1957 to 1960, working as a tractor driver for the construction of the runway at Malpensa airport.


These experiences together his great passion for engines and mechanics led him to open a small workshop of 20 square meters for the repair of agricultural machinery in the village where he was born and grew up. The workshop was called O.R.M.A. , the acronym for Agricultural Machinery Repair Workshop. However, the desire to create his own production , increase in his mind.


The production of crusher-stemmer machines for grape started. The acronym O.R.M.A. was changed from “Officina Riparazioni Macchine Agricole” to “Officina Romagnola Macchine Agricole”. He replaced the word “repair” with the “Romagna” word to show the close relationship with his land, the Romagna!

Since 1963, Clara has been at his side, his wife and lifelong partner... The O.R.M.A. becomes one of the major Italian manufacturers of crusher-stemmer machines for winemaking. A new building was built in 1963, one in 1968 and one in 1976.


O.R.M.A. S.R.L. is born, with a new shareholder structure and with a new project to complement the previous production: the production of self-propelled sprinklers and the expansion of its markets abroad.


The President of the Italian Republic Sandro Pertini awards Felice Marzocchi the honor of “Knight of the Italian Republic”.
