Since its foundation in 1965 in the city of Formigine, Motovario has become one of the leading European manufacturers of gearboxes for industrial and commercial applications. This was followed in 1998 by the acquisition of Spaggiari Trasmissioni, a well-known company with thirty years of experience in mechanical technology.
In 2006, Motovario was acquired by the Italian investment fund BS Private Equity to manage the company's development and support global growth.
Production mainly takes place at the Formigine and Ubersetto sites, where 50,000 square meters are available for production with a workforce of approximately 500 employees.
45 years after its founding, Motovario has proven its ability to grow in line with market fluctuations, through its flexible structure and by consolidating its position as market leader in its sector.
Motovario is present in all major world markets with a network of qualified dealers and agents, and with its own subsidiaries in France, Spain, Austria, Germany, England, Denmark, China and the United States.
With its carefully tuned organization, Motovario can guarantee its customers first-rate service in terms of quality, delivery performance and technical support. Thanks to more than 30 qualified assembly centers, Motovario is able to supply fully customized products and makes it globally competitive in many fields of application.
At the beginning of 2011 Motovario SpA appointed MAK Aandrijvingen as the official distributor for the Dutch market.
In December 2012, Motovario S.p.A. awarded MAK Aandrijvingen in Italy the qualification of MAC, the accredited Motovario Assembly Center. This makes MAK Aandrijvingen the only Motovario certified assembly facility in the Netherlands.
