Silvino Grandis, born 1920, started building bicycles in 1930. He soon became foreman in a company of Verona, that closed in 1965/66.
That is when Grandis began to think about a personal production, with his own brand.
At the start of 1980 his sons Ezio and Mario joined the company.
The production is now composed of a wide range, focusing especially on “Corsa” and “MTB” models with which Grandis won significant sports events.
