A Modern and Efficient Company

Eurotech was founded in 1995 by Roberto Grazioli, helicopter pilot and engineer well known and appreciated all around Italy and abroad. Eurotech started as a helicopter service company certified JAR 145 (today is PART 145). Due to the rapid business expansion, in 1998, Eurotech moved to Caiolo in Lombardy (province of Sondrio) in a new building built specifically to meet the needs of a modern company of helicopter maintenance. The base now has a total of 2,000 sqm of offices and hangars, a helicopter landing site of over 5000 square meters with a plant for the supply of aviation gasoline and kerosene and employs more than 30 professionals and technicians.
