Although people who work in agriculture know us especially for our PTO drive shafts and gearboxes, Bondioli & Pavesi is also a major manufacturer of components for hydraulic power transmission, electronic and hydraulic control of machinery, and heat exchange. Many of these components are fitted to the same agricultural machines on which we install shafts and gearboxes, but they are also essential for another market, namely that of construction machinery.
The construction industry has been going through a difficult period but, despite everything, it remains a global market worth between 80 and 100 billion dollars per year. After record-low results in 2015 (84 billion dollars) forecasts for the near future indicate a slight recovery that should bring overall sales volumes back to the 2014 values within a few years.
How do we expand our presence in a fundamental yet highly competitive industry such as construction? By working hard to develop new products, consolidate existing ones and constantly improve our production processes so that we are competitive in terms of time, quality and cost.
Today is a special day: our Company turns 68! Things have changed a lot from 1950 but our values are still the same: the innovative soul that learns from past to be better today and tomorrow, the constant desire to produce, and a real passion for our job.
