History

"The last 31 years have been marked by moments of success and moments of difficulty, all of which has served to forge the character and personality of this firm."
Mario Luciano Marchetti

Corma's history has witnessed its own growth path which can only be understood by considering the development of the company over time. Corma started out as a family company founded by the owner Mario Luciano Marchetti and his wife Daniela, who were then joined by their three sons, Diego, Mirko and Roberto.

1968

Mario Luciano Marchetti joined Fendt/Laverda as an office clerk in 1968, and in just a few years he was promoted to the position of Fendt/Laverda S.p.A.'s Spare Parts Inventory Director by the brothers Pietro and G. Battista Fendt/Laverda.

LATE 80’s

Due to the extensive crisis which hit the whole of Europe, Fendt/Laverda underwent significant restructuring and, for the first time, Mario and Daniela laid the first corner stone of the dream which is now a consolidated enterprise.

1989

The extensive experience gained in over 20 years in the field, convinced Marchetti that he was ready to explore the possibility of starting his own business, determined to exploit his skills and knowledge to the full. In September 1989 he founded Corma S.r.l. which was based in Cassola, in the province of Vicenza. Corma's core business focused on the trading of spare parts to retailers and end-users in the area, but soon went on to slowly expand to other segments, with a growth in trading throughout domestic and international markets with the supply of original spare parts and technical advice.

1998

This is the year in which Corma moves its facilities from the 450 sq. m warehouse in Cassola (VI) to the new plant in Sandrigo covering over 4,800 sq. m. The new headquarters are located in a highly strategic area, half way between the Dueville motorway toll gate (3 km) and the parent company Fendt/Laverda S.p.A. (2 km). This new facility was chosen with extremely good foresight, well before Corma became an Agent for Fendt/Laverda combine harvesters. The brand new modern facility was designed and developed to store, handle and repair all types of combine harvesters plus the fundamental spare parts warehouse.

2000 JUNE

Fendt/Laverda was taken over by ARGO S.p.A. That same year, Corma received its first Fendt/Laverda Agency appointment for the Veneto area, which was then extended to the provinces of Vicenza, Padua, Verona, Rovigo and part of Venice.

2014

With over 400 Fendt/Laverda combine harvesters sold, along with millions of euro's worth of spare parts, Corma is still a major reference in the Fendt/Laverda combine harvester and spare parts trading world, and also, but by no means less important, technical assistance in Italy and countries worldwide.

2016

A distanza di 16 anni, Corma riceve nuovamente la delega per la distribuzione del brand Laverda per l’intera regione Veneto. Nello stesso anno abbiamo iniziato un percorso di stretta collaborazione direttamente con lo stabilimento Agco di Breganze. Questa collaborazione ci ha permesso di aumentare gradualmente lo staff Corma passando da 4 tecnici del 2016 a 10 di oggi. Questa opportunità ci ha permesso di accrescere ancora di più le nostre conoscenze tecniche non solo delle macchine a scuotipaglia, bensì su tutti modelli prodotti a Breganze ibridi e assiali oggi commercializzati da Agco in tutto il mondo a marchio Massey Fergusson e Fendt.

2017

Nel Febbraio 2017 nasce la collaborazione tra Corma e la Ditta Gaiani Rino di Gaiani Annalisa, per la promozione e la distribuzione dei trattori a marchio Valtra nella provincia di Vicenza.

2019

In virtù di una struttura societaria giovane, ambiziosa e dinamica e una visione orientata sempre con un occhio di riguardo al presente e al futuro, Corma nel Giugno 2019 compie un ulteriore passo nel suo percorso di crescita aziendale. Nasce così la sede secondaria denominata Corma 2. La nuova sede, ubicata tra i comuni di Thiene e Sarcedo (Vicenza), si sviluppa su una superficie totale di oltre 15.000 mq a pochi chilometri di distanza sia dallo stabilimento Agco di Breganze, che alla propria sede principale di Sandrigo. Anche in questo caso, la lungimiranza della Famiglia Marchetti ha dimostrato ancora una volta di saper cogliere le opportunità del momento, sebbene i tempi di oggigiorno non siano dei più rosei e di credere fortemente nelle proprie capacità imprenditoriali.
