Bonfiglioli has adopted an organisation based on Business Units to meet the challenges of today's complex and continually changing market. This organisation gives operational validity to developments that have already led to the concentration of specific and dedicated competences to serve the various areas of industry that Bonfiglioli targets. Three Business Units, the first dedicated to the industrial sector, the second dedicated to the photovoltaic & regenerative business and the third dedicated to mobile and wind solutions, are the logical result of this new business model. Bonfiglioli Riduttori was established on the 16th April 1956 to put into practice the business ideas of Clementino Bonfiglioli, who brought to his new company years of experience in the design and manufacture of gearboxes for farm machinery and motorcycles (including legendary names like Ducati, Gilera and Moto Morini). The new company was baptised Costruzioni Meccaniche Bonfiglioli and for the first few years of its existence concentrated on the production of gearboxes for the two familiar areas of farm machinery and motorcycles, both major industries on the Bolognese industrial landscape at that time.
Towards the mid 1960s, however, a profound transformation began to sweep through the local area: the automation industry rapidly assumed major proportions and a large number of packaging machine manufacturers established themselves in and around Bologna. The area soon became the centre of the world s packaging industry and won for itself the nickname of Packaging Valley . Bonfiglioli was quick to see the great opportunity that this dramatic change presented and began to design and make a range of power transmission gearboxes that rapidly set new standards for the automation industry. In particular, Bonfiglioli designed and patented a new two-stage planetary gearbox which proved so successful that no improvements were required for the next fifteen years. Growth accelerated even further when Bonfiglioli intelligently extended its product range by acquiring other strategic companies. The acquisition in 1975 of Trasmital, a specialist manufacturer of planetary gearboxes for earth moving machinery based in Forl, allowed Bonfiglioli to become a leader in mobile drive trains. The close attention with which Bonfiglioli monitored the market and its continually changing needs then led to the creation of Bonfiglioli Components, a company dedicated exclusively to the design and production of power transmission components. With the benefit of hindsight, this policy of specialisation and full process manufacturing of all components proved to be such a winner that Bonfiglioli soon found itself occupying the position of leader on all its reference markets.
We design, manufacture and distribute a complete range of gearmotors, drive systems, planetary gearboxes, inverters and photovoltaic solutions to satisfy the most challenging needs in the fields of industrial automation, mobile machinery and renewable energy. We offer tailored solutions, whose strength lies in the advanced content of each product and the intelligent integration of different technologies.
