WERENT is the leader among the lifting machine rental company

The company was founded in 1996 under the name Venpa Sud, thanks to the visionary drive of CEO Michele Marraffa. The business immediately proved to be of great interest to a target of companies working at height. From the first aerial platform up to the flagship Wumag 1000 for a constant process of internationalization that led, in 2019, to the launch of the new brand WERENT after the opening of new offices in Venice (Marghera) and Ravenna that join the office in Bari (Modugno) and headquarters in Martina Franca (Ta) legal and administrative headquarters of the company.

Our story

Venpa Sud was founded in Martina Franca in 1996 as a company specialising in the rental and sale of aerial platforms, also offering specialised technical assistance. With the opening of the office in Bari (Modugno), the company became a leader in the sector, first in Southern Italy and then throughout Italy. In recent years, with the opening of the Venice office (Marghera) and the Ravenna office, a process of internationalisation was initiated, which led in 2019 to the change of company name to WERENT.
