Further important stages in Dondi’s history include the definition of a complete range of tillers, which opened the way to the production of several hundreds of machines in the 60s and 70s, reaching a few thousand in the 80s.
Around 1965, the company by now employing 58 workers, decided to test the foreign market, especially Spain, Yugoslavia and Greece. At the same time, the technical staff, directed by Giuliano Dondi, designed and perfected in following years a new farming appliance, the Rotary ditcher, which in about 20 years monopolised the national and foreign market. Dondi exported it, bearing the trademark “Dondiditcher”, to over 50 countries on every continent.
On December 5th, 1978 the company was transformed into a company limited by shares. Between theend of the 70s and the early 80s, the company manufactured thousands of machines, equally distributed between ploughs, tillers and ditchers and, thanks to the commercial direction of Giorgio Dondi, opening new markets, including the United States, and considerably increased export. With the introduction of high-tech multiple ploughshare tools on the national market, produced in France, Austria, Germany and in the Scandinavian countries, the plough witnessed a permanent decline as a product, while the Ditcher remained the flagship product on foreign markets.
