22 Via Poggi, Celle Ligure (SV), Italia
In 1939, after Guiseppe Olmo’s retirement, he began his bicycle making firm in Celle Ligure. The company is still in production today. Giuseppe, nicknamed”Gepin”, with brothers Franco, Giovanni and Michele , also successfully expanded into industries producing plastics for the automotive, furniture, footwear, textiles and thermal insulation.
Giuseppe Olmo Spa has produced many bicycles in it’s long history and has been called “The Schwinn of Italy”. But, as with the Schwinn Paramount, Olmo has also produced some very refined high end models.
