As part of our series of articles profiling MarineDiesel dealers around the world, this week we feature Scandiesel S.r.l., our distributors in Italy:
Scandiesel was established in July 1986 by Tiziana Dellera & Attilio Origo when Motorfabriken BUKH AS (DK) decided to close down the European Branches.
In the beginning the only business was to go on with the BUKH ITALIA activity that was to sell and service BUKH engines within Italian territory.
After quite short time it was realized that the BUKH business was not sufficient to keep the Company alive, then after a short market research we got in contact with the English Company: BETA MARINE Ltd., mariniser of Kubota Diesel Engines and we became their Distributors for Italy and we still are.
Few years after, Motori Perkins Italia decided to stop all activities in the marine market as they needed to concentrate in the industrial sector, then we took that business becoming Italian Distributors for Perkins Engines Marinised by the English Company SABRE.
In 1999 we became Italian Distributors for STEYR MOTORENTECHNIK, but this cooperation was terminated at the end of 2010, while we became Italian Distributor for BUKH – SeasAll SOLAS Engines and BUKH – MARINEDIESEL Engines, starting also a cooperation with the Italian Company VM MOTORI.
To sell and service marine engines has been and still is our main business, but during the years some accessories and Propulsion systems were added into our program like:
– ALAMARIN JET
– KONRAD STERNDRIVE
– PYTHON DRIVE Transmission Systems
– Exhaust Systems
In 2006 we started to work as Service Agents for several producers of life boats and launching appliances according to the SOLAS – IMO Circular 1206. We operate in a 500 sq. metres building. Number of people working in the head office: 5. Then we have 4 salesmen on the road paid on commissions base and a sale and service net made by 58 Independent Companies located along the coasts and main lakes.
