AEDES is not a mere acronym; but an ancient name of Greek and Latin root,which means home, temple, construction.
Back in the 40s, three youths from the Alto Adige area had returned from their wartime imprisonment. They were united under a common will to rebuild the nation; thereby giving birth to a company able to provide everything necessary to farms and families to get back on their feet..
At first, the company supplied bricks for homes and warehouses, silos, agricultural machinery required by the many farms of the territory.
his was the start of “AEDES”
“Everything you need under this roof”
Since the 50s, AEDES has been general importer of PORSCHE DIESEL tractors in Italy, beet machines Franz KLENE and In 1963, PORSCHE DIESEL suspended tractor production, an important worktool for AEDES that was no longer available.
The 70s brings progress to the company, which dedicates and specializes itself in the production and manufacture of orchard and vineyard machines in a small shop in the area of San Maurizio/Gries (BZ) among the vineyards and apple orchards of Alto Adige, in close contact with the farmers.
Given the continuous productive and commercial request in the mid-70s, the company decides to move to its new headquarters in the industrial park of Bolzano, gaining the import and commercialization of SOLO equipment and DEUTZ tractors for Alto Adige.
The tractors were completely disassembled and transformed from wide-open tractors to low-narrow machines that could work the orchards and vineyards of the area.
At the same rate, production increased in lifters AEDES “BOX LIFT”, mulchers AEDES “SCHLEGELMULCHER”, rotomulcher AEDES “ROTORMULCHER” and AEDES “SCHERENMULCHER”.

In 1978, Mr. Günther Pircher takes part in the company history.
At the start of the 80s, AEDES transfers part of its production to Sandrigo (VI) for logistic and productive reasons, which then moves to the new plant of Dueville (VI).
Mr. Giovanni Zarantonello also begins his company history that year in the Dueville plant.
At the onset of the new millennium, the helm of AEDES Costruzioni SRL is in the hands of partners Giovanni Zarantonello e Günther Pircher. All designs and productions are centralized in the Dueville (VI) facilities.
In the meanwhile, the Bolzano plant is moved to Andriano, a small suburban town between Bolzano and Merano, among the orchards and vineyards.
