Our company

Our company

It all began in 1983 when the legendary Umberto PASTORELLI started his business as a distributor with two bags full of rhythmic gymnastics equipment.

Umberto, like all successful men, was helped in the company development by a great advisor, his wife Elena: a very determined woman who was able to support him in all the hardest challenges which a company must overcome in the initial phases of its birth and growth. Pastorelli accomplishments included creating the company's economic and financial stability, developing products, marketing and a distribution network with loyal customers, a stable workforce and a peerless reputation.

His great passion, combined with the help of his family led in a short time to the company's growth and to its evolution from a purely trade company to production of its own equipment. And today it is able to create new products to offer its customers.
The dedication to work and the pursuit of improving the quality of the items have marked the time in the Company and has been the true inspiring philosophy.
After 35 years of activity, the company is supplier of the Italian National Team of Rhythmic Gymnastics and its equipment (PASTORELLI hoops and clubs) has partly contributed to the success of the wonderful champions who make up the Italian Team, winner of the gold medal at the World Championships in Baku 2005, Mie 2009, Moscow 2010, Montpellier 2011 and silver and bronze medals in Athens 2004 and London 2012.

During the last Olympics in Rio 2016, 11 out of 12 teams used PASTORELLI equipment or accessories.

At the World Championships in Moscow 2010, PASTRELLI received over 15 approval certificates from the International Gymnastics Federation, the highest international gymnastics organisation thus becoming a FIG Official Partner.

PASTORELLI is the sole company in the world for the production of equipment for rhythmic gymnastics which includes the FIG logo on both small and large equipment such as balls, hoops, clubs, ribbons, ropes and also the carpet for international, world and olympic competitions.

Today 's company has more than 2,500 items entirely designed and developed within the company at its 3,000 square metre production and storage facility.

Finally, the highest expression of imagination and creativity of PASTORELLI associates, is demonstrated by its unique glitter gym balls as well as an elegant line of leotards for Artistic and Rhythmic Gymnastics.

Since January 1st 2018, in order to guarantee the timely arrival of its items to clients throughout the world, PASTORELLI is distributed within more than 50 nations in all 5 continents.
