Above on the page there're some Service PDF Manuals for OM Forklift Trucks
The predecessor of OM Pimespo was Officine Meccaniche (OM), which was engaged in the production of railway rolling stock - rail vehicles, including locomotives, freight and passenger cars, railcars and locomotives.
In 1917, the OM brand was registered, under which the production of cars began.
During the period from 1917 to 1921, the company produced several cars with different engines: Tipo-465 (4-cylinder, volume 1327 cm3) in 1919, Tipo-467 (volume 1410 cm3) and Tipo-469 (volume 1496 cm3) in 1921 year.
In 1925, a completely new Tipo 665 model appeared with a 6-cylinder 2-liter Swiss Superba engine, buses and trucks began to be produced.
The first Mille Miglia endurance race (1927) was attended by 77 riders. Prize-winning places were occupied by participants who performed on OM Tipo 665 cars.
The first OM forklift trucks (models K41 and K51) were produced in a three-wheel version, equipped with an electric drive and a tiller operated by a pedestrian.
The K41 used mechanics as the lift, while the K51 used hydraulics.
In 1961, on the basis of a new factory built in Luzzara, Pimespo appeared, which produced WH Trucks trucks.
In 1970, a plant in Bari was opened, and in 1977 its production capacity was expanded.
Gradually, the OM brand leaves the truck and bus market and in 1992 becomes an independent enterprise for the production of forklifts.
Since the mid-90s, OM has been producing forklifts with its own power supply system and an asynchronous motor, powered by a three-phase current from a certain type of inverter.
In 2006, Still, Linde and OM merged into the KION Group AG holding. The main products of KION Group are warehouse automation equipment and industrial (forklift) trucks.
In 2009, KION Group established a joint venture for the production of Baoli forklift trucks in Jiangsu province (China), and in 2011 began cooperation with the Indian engineering company Voltas.
In 2017, OM products began to be supplied to the Indian market, and in 2019 a plant with a production capacity of 10, 000 trucks per year was built in Pune.
Italian design and engineering experience, understanding of the Indian market and the trust that has been earned over 100 years of history make OM the best standards in the world.
