Gondrand and Vinelli & Scotto were founded in different cities, a couple of decades apart. Both were born and raised with the passion, strong family values, and a commitment to personalized service that characterizes a family business.
In 1866, Francesco Gondrand moved from Savoy to Milan and, together with his brothers Clément, Louis, and Désirè, founded the transportation company Fratelli Gondrand. Within a few years, this new entrepreneurial venture experienced rapid expansion with the opening of offices in Italy, Europe, and America. The distinctive yellow colour of the company's large vans, known as the "yellow that runs," contributed to the establishment of the brand. Since then, when it comes to moving in Italy, Gondrand comes to mind.
The history of Vinelli & Scotto begins in Turin in 1890 when Francesco Vinelli decides to partner with his cousin Scotto and establishes a company that will specialize in freight transportation and logistics services. In the early 1930s, Vinelli's daughter, Claudina, succeeds him, becoming one of the few female entrepreneurs of the time. After the war, the company successfully shifts its focus to the moving industry. The female lineage continued into the early 1990s when Renata and Laura Busettini took over the business from their father, Ottavio Busettini, and continued the internationalization of the company, evolving its identity through the implementation of relocation services.
