The business went on until 2004. In the same year he decides to found, together with his son Valerio, a family company for the design, production and sale of hydraulic breakers, which got the name of "Hammer". The values of a family company have allowed Hammer to establish itself on the global market through 10 branches spread across the continents and a capillary network of dealers and authorized workshops throughout the world.
Hammer guarantees a 100% Made in Italy product of the highest quality, entirely designed and manufactured in the 8 plants (an area of 30000 m²) located in the Industrial Area of Molfetta, Italy.
Hammer began with the design, production and sale of small and medium-sized hydraulic breakers, in addition to the sale of multi-brand spare parts.
Some years later came the introduction of the first examples of demolition crushers, which paved the way for the demolition and recycling segment. At this point, Hammer decides to expand the range of hydraulic breakers, up to the FX 15000 model which, with a weight of 14500 kg, which became the largest hydraulic breaker in the world.
After the huge success achieved in this segment, Hammer introduced the SB series that benefits from the particular monoblock construction. This feature gives the structure a very high resistance to leverage efforts. The breaker is built in one piece and there are no side bolts or diaphragms. After that all the other different attachment series, mentioned earlier, was released.
