At the same time Airo anounced that Gianluca Ferramola, a member of  Airo’s founding family, will leave the company to embark on a new career path. “The company expresses its heartfelt thanks to Gianluca Ferramola and wishes maximum success in his new challenge,” said Airo.

Bulgarelli will be responsible for the development of new technologies and aerial platform models, heading up and continuing the innovative work carried by the existing design team. There will be a particular focus on green energy solutions with zero emissions, zero noise and low maintenance.

Apart from defining new projects and equipment the work will include the optimisation of the company’s existing ranges and managing the design team.

Stefan Weber, Airo sales manager, said, “We are delighted to have Gian Luca Bulgarelli in our team. Known and respected in the wider equipment sector for his professionalism and decades of experience, he will give Airo a further push in accelerating our future projects.”

Bulgarelli added, “I am very happy to have joined Airo; we have many new ideas and I’m happy to be able to develop new projects with such a motivated and positive team.”
