Established by Renato, Luciano and Corrado Brevini in Reggio Emilia in 1960, Brevini Power Transmission was the first Italian company to produce planetary gearboxes. Today it is among the world's top ten manufacturers in the power transmission sector, thanks to its growing market shares in industrial applications (the iron and steel industry, plastics production, materials handling) and in innovative systems such as wind turbines, waste recycling plants, and energy production.
In 2012 Brevini Power Transmission achieved a turnover of 320 million euros. Despite the international crisis that has hit several industrial sectors and many geographical areas in which Brevini Power Transmission does business, the company has confirmed the strong growth trend that began in 2000. Exports, which were 60% of the turnover in 2000, have grown to 86% in 2011.
Brevini Power Transmission, with headquarters in Reggio Emilia, has 5 production units (3 in Italy, 1 in Germany and 1 in China), with 1,600 employees, 63% of which work in our factories abroad. The major investments that have been made since 2000 are combined with a focus on continuous training for employees through the "Luciano Brevini" Training School, which first opened in 2001.
The future is based on an industrial plan with a new line of development. The new headquarters were built in Reggio Emilia near the highway exit. This 25 million euro investment confirms the group's desire to keep its central operations in Reggio Emilia even though it is international in scope, also from a production perspective. In recent years, Stefano Brevini, Maurizio Brevini, and Paolo Brevini have joined the company that was established by Renato Brevini (President), Corrado Brevini (Vice President) and Luciano Brevini (who passed away in 1982).
