“Great strength and power”. The story of a giant.


Anteo was launched in 1969 to produce bespoke hydraulic cylinders that were designed and made to customers’ specifications.
The company is named after Antaeus, a giant in Greek mythology who symbolised great strength and power.


In 1989 Anteo harnessed the wealth of experience gained over years producing hydraulic components for major European manufacturers to begin large-scale production of tail lifts and soon earned widespread national and international recognition.


The turning point came in 1992, when Anteo launched a new range of tail lifts for road haulage.
Anteo combined its years of experience in the hydraulic sector with effective business strategies, cutting-edge technology, and a passionate desire for quality to ensure global success.


Anteo restyled the logo to mark the company’s 45th anniversary. The new design conveys the prestige, strength, excellence, technology and reliability for which Anteo is renowned and the values it represents in Italy and overseas – A World-Class Company .
