The company was founded in 1988 by Ennio Mattarelli and Gino Nobili.
The idea was to manufacture a simple machine which would be easy to install and to maintain.
The first few machines met with great acceptance and, following such a satisfactory market response, others followed. Today a complete range of products is available for the Olympic disciplines, Sporting, American Trap Shooting and, last but not least, the Multidirectional which is very much in demand.
Reliability is at the base of the successful use these machines on the fields of Atlanta and subsequently of those of Sydney on the occasion of the two last Olympic Games (1996 and 2000).
The well-known name of Ennio Mattarelli and his long experience in the world of clay-pigeon shooting have undoubtedly contributed to the manufacturing and marketing of these clay-target launching machines.
Company’s philosophy is to keep the highest qualitative standard level possible by caring and paying attention to the smallest details. The machines are built in the company’s Bologna head office and are individually tasted before being shipped.
There has been a remarkable increase in sales over the last five years, and production is now standing at 1500 units per annum.
