Maximum of specialization
THE HARVESTING HEADER PRODUCER
Olimac Srl, based near Cuneo in northern Italy, is a fourth-generation family business and one of the world’s leading producers of harvesting attachments. Olimac’s strength lies in its extensive specialization on harvesting headers for corn, sunflowers, and special crops. With more than 70 years of experience, Olimac has managed to develop highly efficient harvesting machines with low losses and long durability. Today, Olimac’s headers improve the yields of customers all over the world.
CORN HARVEST TECHNOLOGY
from the very beginning
Back in the 1950s, when corn was first cultivated on a large scale in Europe, Emilio Olivero from Cuneo developed his first harvesting attachment specially for this crop. The “Testate Integrale” was groundbreaking for its time and laid the foundation for the global company of today. Olimac’s current harvesting headers are the result of the ongoing development that has been pursued since that time.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
LEADING BY FOCUSING
At Olimac, a highly qualified team of engineers and technicians work day in, day out solely on improving their harvesting headers. Olimac is strictly organized as a manufacturing company. Therefore, the focus of the entire factory lies exclusively on the development and production of high-quality harvesting attachments.
PRODUCTION ON 90.000 M²
A STATE-OF-THE-ART FACTORY SITE
Olimac produces its harvesting headers with a uniquely high vertical integration completely in-house in its 90,000 m² large factory near Cuneo in Piedmont (Italy). There, only the company’s own harvesting heads are produced. Olimac is also focused on sustainability. Three-quarters of the energy required for production is provided by photovoltaic panels installed on the roof of the plant.
Each single component produced by Olimac is individually checked electronically for tolerance and deviation by the company’s quality management. During this process, the responsible employee signs each component with his initials. This creates a sense of responsibility and allows quick identification of the tester in case of defects.
Olimac’s quality management is certified by TÜV Rheinland according to ISO 9001.
STATE OF THE ART PRODUCTION
By focusing on a small number of products in combination with a high degree of robotization and automation, Olimac is able to produce cost-efficiently while ensuring a constant level of quality. Due to the high degree of in-house production, Olimac relies only to a small extent on suppliers and is therefore able to react flexibly and quickly to change in demand.
