In 1947, Luigi Prando opened his small workshop, reparing bikes and motorbikes. This is the turbulent period after the war and the will to start out afresh and is firmly fixed in the heart and mind of Luigi who, in the 60s had already expanded his workshop, also dedicating himself to the repair of cars and agricultural machinery.
During that period, the business lead is handed over to Antonio, Luigi’s son.
In 1975, the Prando workshop moves to its current premises of Via Carlo Alberto della Chiesa in Aosta, and changes name to Operval.
The third Prando generation joins the company in 2005, with Andrea and Lorenzo who, particularly interested in electronics, take on the challenge of making remote controlled earth moving vehicles.
In 2019 Operval joined Unacea, Italian construction equipment association.
To the present day Operval has filed 3 innovative patents.
Operval’s constant bond with the territory and a qualified well trained team contributed towards the creation of versatile machinery with exceptional manoeuvrability, able to operate over all types of terrain, perfectly satisfying the requirements of those who work in the field of earth moving.
