Just over a year ago, at the end of January, 2017, GROB acquired a one-hundred percent share in DMG meccanica, the leading manufacturer of machines and systems for the production of stators for electric motors and generators.
The Group took this step in order to strengthen its many years of research and development work in the field of electric mobility. By combining technologies from DMG meccanica with processes developed in-house by GROB, the Group can now offer and supply all production processes and procedures for electric drives for the global automobile industry. Last year, the Group received the first major orders for the new generation of electric drives from the German automotive industry and its Chinese joint ventures, thus confirming the successfully implemented strategy of diversification with new products and orders.
Following the acquisition, DMG meccanica became part of the GROB Group without any changes being made to its corporate structure. To complete its integration and optimize its structure, DMG meccanica has undergone the final step of the acquisition and been renamed GROB Italy Srl. The Management Board remains unchanged and continues to consist of the DMG meccanica company founders Mr. Marco Debillo and Mr. Mauro Marzolla.
Sales and service branch GROB Italia (Turin), headed by Managing Director Mr. Antonio Goia, will be integrated into GROB Italy Srl during the course of 2018.
As such, GROB Italy Srl will comprise two corporate areas in the long term: DMG meccanica will be renamed as GROB Italy.
This structured initiative points the GROB Group the right strategic direction and also puts us in the ideal position to master new challenges in the future and meet the needs of our customers.
