Navalimpianti Spa has been dealing with maritime equipment since 1971. Set sail from Ceranesi, Genoa, where the headquarters are still located, thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit of Carlo Viganò, Lorenzo and Domenico Olivieri; it first arrived with its strategic branch in Monfalcone, the city of shipyards, near Trieste, to later cross over the entire peninsula and arrive at Termini Imerese, Palermo, where the subsidiary Tecnimpianti Spa is located.
The entrepreneurial path immediately went beyond the territorial dimension; by the year 2021 – which marked our 50th anniversary https://www.navim.com/50-years-of-navim-group/ – the Genoese company became an international holding, named Navim Group. Today it consists of the 3 main Business Units, Navalimpianti Spa, Tecnimpianti Spa and Navalimpianti USA together with various branches strategically located all over the world.
The ownership of Navim Group is still the same with the new generation carrying on the entrepreneurial reins with commitment, professionalism and great dedication: Chiara Viganò, daughter of Carlo, and Federico Olivieri, son of Domenico and nephew of Lorenzo, both in the company with very important management roles. At the helm since 2008 there is Giuseppe Cracolici, CEO of the entire Group and General Manager of Tecnimpianti Spa, in his beloved Sicily. Honorary President is today Eng. Attilio Dall’Osso, a historical column of the group and a close friend of Carlo and Domenico. A team of highly skilled managers, a team of engineers, specialized technicians, administrative staff carefully selected support the customer throughout the production process.
“We were born in Genoa – explains Giuseppe Cracolici, CEO of the Group – the bond with the territory is very strong but our philosophy is to go work wherever the market presents opportunities for development. It is this mentality that has contributed to make Navim Group what it is today: a global brand of excellence, recognized and sought after all over the world.”Our relationship with customers is leader to leader. Our main customers – explains Cracolici – are the best shipyards in the world, which, in turn, receive orders from all the main international shipowners and players. We offer them commercial, technical and assistance support all over the world, providing the know-how acquired in fifty years of activity and our natural passion for innovative solutions “.

“Our production is customized. The difference with our competitors is made of technical and technological details, which make our products unique pieces of sartorial engineering, despite the size and weight of these creations. It is the ability to provide tailor-made solutions that makes us authoritative on the market “. To support the words of our CEO, a prestigious portfolio featuring over 30.000 systems and equipment delivered all over the world.
