Our head office is based in the Emilia Romagna region, in Macerone di Cesena, it spans an indoor floor space of 3,000 sqm and a 5,000 sqm lot outdoors and it is equipped with cutting-edge tools and machines.

We are growing our business in Lombardy with the opening of a new warehouse in Castelnuovo Bocca d’Adda, in order to be able to frequently visit all suppliers of northern Italy.

We are operating in Sicily for several years on a permanent basis where we have consolidated our presence with an institutional cooperation in the Palermo area.

Furthermore we have started some successful partnerships in the Lazio and Campania regions, more precisely in Rome and Naples, which enable us to optimize the local collection of the material, to establish winning synergies and to organize a more efficient work.

Within the end of this year our next goal to be reached is developing new partnerships in Sardinia as well as in Puglia and replicating all the successes already achieved in Rome and Naples.

Our history

Gobbi Spare Parts 1965


Our story began after the war, with an apparently simple idea that nobody had ever thought of before.
It began with a man, Mr Nello Gobbi, who stepped into a developing market that was the buying and selling of used auto spare parts.
Mr Nello started travelling all over Italy with his truck and several ideas fueled by his natural commercial instinct. The energy put by him into the business, his being always ready with jokes, and his great professional honesty made him the favorite scrap yards and mechanical shops partner.
The word got around, trips across Italy became more and more and an upcoming growth was then coming through.

Gobbi Spare Parts 1992


In the eighties Sandro, the son of Mr Nello, started working alongside his father, bringing enthusiasm but also several new ideas for the development of their business. He started introducing some innovative tools – like lifters and specific storages – which today are simply ordinary but at that time they were seen as a creative solution capable of improving the way of working of all stakeholders in the sector.
Later on Sandro started to expand the range of the treated itmes and to outline the draft of what was to become his company. Shortly afterwards thanks to hard work, determination and perseverance, this company would become one of the main market representatives.

Gobbi Spare Parts 2007


In the 1990s and 2000s the company has continued to grow thans to its winning formula:
– in-depth knowledge of the business given by direct and constant experience on the field;
– versatile vision of market dynamics;
– strengthening of the operational network all over Italy;
– search for qualified personnel inside a working environment capable of stimulating and developing new fresh ideas;
– continuous technological updating of the operational processes and of the team training;
The birth of the company Gobbi Spare Parts in the year 2007 marks its launch into the international market.
