Founded in Genoa in 1973 on an idea and the passion of the Percivale brothers, the
company has grown over the years thanks to the success of its products. In addition to the
production of roll bars and safety components for racecars, the company is especially
known for its fireproof track suits worn by the highly decorated champions of Formula 1
and World Rally like Michael Shumacher, Gerard Berger, Ayrton Senna, Nigel
Mansell, Tommi Makinen, Juha Kankkunen and Carlos Sainz.
Today OMP has a modern, recently renovated plant in Ronco Scrivia of about 30,000
square with 80 workers and 1 international associate partner in Miami,Florida.
In February 2008 the control of OMP was acquired by SAYE S.P.A Group, held by the
genovese Delprato brothers. Nowaday the 96% of thecompany is held by SAYE S.P.A Group
and by 4% Lapo Salvadori, a financial manager. Board of Directors: Alberto Delprato
(President and C.E.O), Paolo Delprato (Vice President and C.E.O.), Federico Minoli, Lapo
Salvadori and Fabrizio Villa (Board Members).
OMP is today one of the few businesses in the world able to offer a complete range of
articles dedicated to racecars and pilot safety, with over 5,000 products in the catalogue
approved, where requested, by FIA, SFI Foundation and Snell, as concerns the American market.
Recently the company started a new phase of growth, which can take place through subsequent acquisitions of companies in the same sector or linked sectors (in Italy and
abroad). This growth is possible thanks to the entry of new partners and the direct contribution to OMP´s management of the Delprato brothers, of Federico Minoli (former President and CEO of Ducati Motor Holding and Fiera di Bologna (Bologna Fairgrounds).
