environmental services Potenza

The Garramone company activities are concentrated in Basilicata but in the last few years and along with a group of entrepreneurs who operate in the same sector, it decided to cross national boundaries. 

In 2012, with the discovery of an oilfield in Pemba, Mozambique, five young entrepreneurs leave to look for new job opportunities. 

Approximately every six months, they go on the territory to see with their own eyes what initially seemed pure utopia.

Our background

Michele is a small conveyor c/t. Every morning while smoking his cigarette, he sees strange vehicles constantly going by on the SS Basentana. 
These gully emptiers from Apulia carry out interventions in Potenza and neighbouring areas every day. This is how Michele’s long-term outlook replaced the unmet local demand. The difficulties in buying a gully emptier are many but this did not bring down Michele in doing so, instead they reinforced his determination in being the first person to own a gully emptier in Basilicata. 

In 1978, he finally bought his first gully emptier and since that day, the company continued to grow. On February 19, 1996, he decided to transform the sole proprietorship into an organisation by the name of GARRAMONE MICHELE & SONS s.n.c.

Michele’s fortune was not just having an idea but also that his sons joined him and supported him from the start and all the time. From an early age, Antonio and Vito demonstrated successful working skills. Over the years, they developed significant professional talents and responsibilities, which led their father to sell his share to his children in 2009. Each now owns 50%. 

It is a company that was founded with the objective of ensuring a resolvable service with a gully emptier. Over the years, its activities increase by presenting a vast and broad social object. 

In fact, in the late 80’s and early 90’s, Antonio’s love for his work crosses the boundaries of Potenza and settles in Val d’Agri. A little later in 2010, he builds a headquarters in Viggiano, which now has about 40 employees.  
Vito dedicates himself completely to the work in Potenza and neighbouring areas while strongly believing in his work and constantly struggling against competitors. At the same time, he decides to embark on a new path and opens a headquarters in Corleto Perticara. 
They are both certainly projected in an economic environment that led them to develop a remarkable know how. 
They rely heavily on their highly-trained staff. Both Antonio and Vito have great confidence in them and believe that human resources are the real capital of the company. 
It is not essential for them to achieve profits but to maximise operational efficiency and strategic effectiveness of their own vehicles and people organization. This can only be achieved with the perfect connection between tangible and intangible capital. 
The company is presently in the process of further transformation and many projects are to be implemented. The determination to accomplish them is not missing. The future hope is another change of generations in which the protagonists will be Antonio’s and Vito’s children.
