Founded in 1965 to meet a growing need for automation among local farmers, further dimensions were gradually added, expanding the company’s scope. Farm machinery sales and repair were joined by the building of machines for the harvesting of fruit from the ground.

The earliest models were trailed machines, but design and production of the first self-propelled machinery soon began, and today the technologically highly advanced and fully-accessorized range is capable of catering for every need that large, medium and small-sized contractors and farmers may have.

Currently Monchiero harvesters are at work all over the world, from France to Chile, and from Australia to South Africa.

The forestry sector began to develop in the ‘90s, when Monchiero became the exclusive distributor in Italy for John Deere – still Timberjack at the time.

Ever since, Monchiero has been expanding its range thanks to partnerships with the leading international names in the sector – such as the american Bandit brand, the Swedish chipper manufacturers Erjo, and Palax firewood processors from Finland – and today it is a secure all-round focal point for all the needs of Italian forestry professionals.

Monchiero’s headquartes are designed to save energy

Completed in 2009 very near the historic site in Pollenzo, the new headquarters testify to the company’s dynamism and its commitment to the environment..
It is, in fact, the first class A-certified industrial building in Piedmont: 3300 sqm of floor space, with an annual energy requirement of less than 30 kWh/sqm, compared to the required 70.

Built in keeping with state-of-the-art sustainability criteria, and with great attention paid to comfort and to environmental and operating costs, the new facility remains a rarity in its field.

Designed by Studio Roatta of Mondovì, the project avails itself of all available features for reducing energy consumption to a minimum, starting from the external insulation of the building, which is no less than 15 cm thick in the walls and 16 cm on the roof.

The underfloor heating is able to guarantee a 25-30% saving on fuel, and to avoid dispersion of heat upwards while offering greater environmental comfort. The wood-chip boiler guarantees virtually zero carbon dioxide emissions, and by using locally-produced biomass it exploits a fully-renewable energy source with a very low cost.

The air-conditioning of the offices in summer is based on a geothermal heat pump system using rainwater from natural layers in the subsoil, and the cooling of the production area is completely natural. Air is delivered via 26 diffusers distributed throughout the flooring, driven by two small fans that complete the work performed by the skylights in the roof. Kept open at night, they help recirculation, making it possible to work in better climatic conditions at an extremely low cost. A normal air conditioning system over such a huge area would be inconceivable.
