HomeCompanyOur History

Since 1968 OMG has been synonymous with Italian ‘know-how’

From a small workshop to an international company specialized in the production of customized and niche forklift for handling any type of goods.

THE EARLY YEARS YEARS 2000 YEARS 2010
1968
Foundation

OMG Group’s adventure began with the establishment of a small workshop mainly working in the agricultural and construction sectors. Hard work combined with the founders’ passion enabled rapid expansion of the business and work in new sectors.

1975
The Gonzaga headquarter

The Gonzaga plant was set up to produce structural work on forklifts for third parties. This business was the real launching pad that enabled the necessary know-how to be obtained to set up our own forklift manufacturing business.

1979
The carpentry for forklift

The Gonzaga plant was set up to produce structural work on forklifts for third parties. This business was the real launching pad that enabled the necessary know-how to be obtained to set up our own forklift manufacturing business.

1983
The first forklift

The historic site in Gonzaga, extended in 1980 with the construction of the office building, began the real history of the company with the construction of the first machine sold under the OMG brand. From this moment on, our passion for work combined with the desire to compete with manufacturers who had been on the market for years, led to continuous broadening of the products range and research into increasingly advanced technologies.

1987
The international market

The employment of expert staff combined with an increasingly competitive product allowed the company to explore and, in particular, conquest new markets: France, Holland and Spain represent the beginning of our international adventure, and are still the flagship in the OMG sales network.

1998
The production of electric front forklift

1998 was a period of fundamental importance for the company: the start of electric front forklifts in fact enabled the company to finally count on a complete range of products and, as a result, take on the role of leading manufacturer in the forklifts sector. The production line of new forklifts was located in the new assembly and warehouse division, which was specifically renovated for the purpose.
