The story of Gerotto from the beginnings to today

Experience and technology at the service of safety.

Gerotto Federico was founded in 1966 in Campodarsego, in the Venetian hinterland, with the initial denomination of artisan enterprise, specialized in excavations and earthmoving operations. During the following years the company evolved and, as a proof of the huge development of the field and of the company itself, the operative and administrative headquarter was built, which is still today the heart of a constantly evolving activity.

Growth combined to research and application of new technologies to the products has been the vocation of the company since 1993, when it became Gerotto Federico S.r.l.

The decisive turn came in the 2000s, thanks to this vision: in the German market, Gerotto glimpsed the high potentialities of an innovative machine called Saugbagger, translated as Suction Excavator, which is used to excavate the material by means of aspiration.
In this way Gerotto Federico S.r.l. becomes the exclusive dealer of the German company RSP GmbH in Italy, directly importing the machines from the mother company and increasing the experience in the field. Through the years, this made it possible to bring about improvements directly to the machine and to realize specific accessories for accelerating and enhance the operations.


Due to the success and the increasing interest in this innovative and multi-functional system, the company creates a specific department for the commercialization, the provision of aspiration services and the complete after-sale technical service.

Shortly after, motivated by its spirit of innovation and thanks to the experience gained on the field, Gerotto Federico S.r.l. started to design and realize a totally new range of products: the Mini Excavators. These are remote controlled robots which can arrive where men can’t (ducts, sewers, culverts, etc.), and can be used together with Suction Excavators, Vacuum Trucks and Industrial Aspirators.
Suitable for cleaning operations and reclamations inside confined, narrow and dangerous spaces and in any place with the presence of pollution and toxic substances, the Mini Excavators are available both for rental and for sale.
Always ready to intervene for the safeguard of the safety of the operators during dangerous works, Gerotto Federico S.r.l., starting from 2013, has been developing a series of ATEX certified Mini Robots, that can work in the presence of explosive atmospheres.

The awareness of the extreme importance of safety on the workplace has become the company mission, turning into a slogan which is at the base of every project and realization still today: NO MORE RISK.

Improving the existing products and developing new ones, with an eye to the company mission, is what guides Gerotto Federico S.r.l. today and in the future.
