The becoming of SEPPI M.
The SEPPI M. company is founded by Max Seppi in Appiano, province of Bolzano, Italy. Just a few years earlier Max, a simple yet talented boy from a moutain village had moved down to Appiano to learn the profession of a blacksmith. With his own little enterprise he achieved his dream of independent work. He was solving all sorts of mechanical, hydraulic and electrical questions - always putting forth new ideas.
After WWII the company increasingly concentrates on the production of agricultural machines for orchards and vineyards. "To facilitate the work of farmers through innovative machines" was the philosophy already in those days.
First rotary mowers built. Other machines built in those days include saws, wood processing machines, machines for wineries.
Short after his entry in the company, Luciano Seppi, Max's son, starts building the first mulchers with hammers on a rotor. Since these mulchers are so successful, the little company increasingly focusses on them.
