It is located in Faenza (Ravenna) - an area with a strong added-value farming tradition, mainly in the fruit-farming field. Gowan Italia originates from the 2006 buyout of SARIAF - the original Italian company, established in 1947 - by the American company Gowan, throughout a number of structure changes that in 2009 led to its current business name. In the last 4 years the company’s turnover increased of more than one third and surpassed EUR 20 million.

The Company structure comprises a pre- and post-marketing product development unit to search for the most suitable usage modality and for further market opportunities. New products or products that are being launched in the market undergo testing in expressly created testing centres, university centres, or regional testing structures supporting the food industry development. The Faenza plant comprises offices and sorting warehouses, whereas production is outsourced to supplying companies. The company’s target market is mainly that of farm machinery and equipment dealers ¿ both private dealers and dealers’ consortia.
