Dell'Orto was founded in 1933 by Gaetano Dell'Orto, under the name "Società Anonima Gaetano Dell'Orto e Figli" (Gaetano Dell'Orto and Sons). Dell'Orto began by producing carburetors for motorcycle manufacturers, and shortly before the war, the company began to design aluminium racing carburetors for racing bikes.
During the 1960s, the company began to expand and started producing carburetors for both Italian and foreign major automotive manufacturers. This helped Dell'Orto gaining widespread recognition and achieving relative economical stability.
In the late 1980s, Dell'Orto began to build injection systems for motorcycles, allowing the company to establish itself as one of the undisputed leaders in this field.
Privileged partner of Italian Gilera, Dell'Orto equipped many teams participating in motorcycle racing world championships.
Dell'Orto now owns an Asian subsidiary Dell'Orto India, allowing the company to further expand into Asian markets.
