About Ariete

Established in 1964, Ariete is located in the heart of Tuscany.  Ariete is a dynamic company always looking for new ideas in the field of small appliances.  Ariete is a global Brand with exports represents about 60% of total sales. In 1995 the company was incorporated by the international group Kenwood Appliances UK and since 2001 has been incorporated by the De’Longhi Group.

Innovation and creative “design” are the keys to success. The Company invests heavily in Research & Development and Design and has its own manufacturing and technology centre at its head office in Florence with the goal being to look forward and find new solutions to the changing needs of the consumer.  Such innovation and simplicity in design has seen the creation of products such as Saladino, Vaporì and legendary Gratì, and see Ariete achieving great results including having 66% market share of electric graters.
