Bravi: a story that speaks of know-how and made in Italy for over 40 years.

Thanks to the inspiration and progress-oriented attitude of the owner and founder Pierino Bravi, Bravi Platforms is a globally recognized and respected mobile platform production company today, a pioneer of the creation of more efficient and safer methods to work at low heights.

A 40-year journey deeply rooted in the personal history of Pierino Bravi and his over twenty years of experience in the constructions sector. Pierino founded a small company that offered solutions and took on contracts in installations in 1978, a company that became Braviisol in 1980, among the leading companies in the sector in the Italian market by the early 1990s.

Efficiency and productivity are paramount for the Braviisol company, which in 1986 designs and builds the first mobile platform, the self-propelled B.P.3, with a working height of 18 meters. Pierino Bravi continues to innovate the low-level aerial equipment sector by improving his initial concept and adding other models. By making use of his experience, Pierino follows his intuition and creates new opportunities for his company, following his philosophy: “If the market does not offer adequate equipment, the solution is simple: invent it!”

In 1995 the first hydraulic vertical mast models were made: LUI S.I. (working height 9 mt) and LUI MINI, the first compact and self-propelled platform with a working height of 5 mt. This platform will be constantly improved over the years, eventually evolving into the Leonardo HD model.

In 2010, production expanded, with a range of picking machines being added. It also see the creation of the BRAVI PLATFORMS brand, a choice meant to reflect the, by-then, strongly international character of the company.

The experience and entrepreneurship of Pierino Bravi, the relationship and collaboration built with our customers and collaborators have allowed BRAVI PATFORMS to establish itself as a key player in the sector, ready to improve and proud to be 100% Made in Italy. Our machines have been created with both the end user and rental companies in mind, a machine that can satisfy all types of customers at 360°.
