In 2009, we created a special electromobility team - Bonfiglioli Electromobility Competence Center. Bonfiglioli invested immediately and consistently in resources, research and development. People with an electrical background were included in each team to capture synergies and "contaminate" each business division: sales, technical department, SDC, PED, after sales, test room, etc.
In those years, Bonfiglioli began a close cooperation with many key clients, working on different prototypes. 2012 was a pivotal year: for the first time, Bonfiglioli started producing single motor drive axles for a leading OEM, a new application and a new type of product beyond gearboxes.
In 2014, thanks to a major acquisition, Bonfiglioli became a full-liner, developing a complete portfolio of electromobility solutions for class I/II/III
In 2016, over 200,000 forklifts worldwide were driven by Bonfiglioli products. Partner of 3 leading international OEMs
In 2018, we inaugurated a plant expansion in Italy. The new unit, spreading over an area of approx. 10,000 square meters, is entirely dedicated to the production of electrical axles for powertrains and wheel drives of different sizes.
In 2019, the capacity was further increased by adding a high automation assembly line applying industry 4.0 concepts to mass production of dual motor drive axles for forklifts.
