Modernised and extended service base for MAN marine engines in Italy

Location directly on the deepwater pier

The Italian importer of MAN engines and operator of the MAN service base for marine engines, Ranieri Tonissi S.p.A., moved to its new headquarters in Genoa in June. Yachting and commercial customers alike will benefit not only from the prestigious new premises but also from the location directly on the deepwater pier.

The move from Bolzanetto directly into the harbour at Genoa gives Ranieri Tonissi S.p.A. some 3,000m2 in space for the workshop, storage and administration. Some 2.5 million Euros have been invested in the former harbour workshop over the last two years to bring it up to the latest standard with state-of-the-art technology. Located directly on the deepwater pier, the new company headquarters not only offer short distances but also provide service facilities for ships of up to 40m in length - from yachts to working boats. Alessandro Airoldi, executive partner of Ranieri Tonissi, proudly explains: "With the new service base we have brought the high quality standards MAN sets to perfection. The modern and more spacious premises open up new options for us - and therefore also for our customers - in installation consultation, commissioning, sea trials and after sales."

Ranieri Tonissi has been importing high-speed MAN marine engines and acting as the main service base for Italy for almost 60 years. The company was founded in 1886 and employs a workforce of 40 in the workshop, service and administration. Alessandro Airoldi is the third generation of his family to be managing director of the company.
