A WORLDWIDE LEADING INTEGRATED CLUSTER FOR MOBILITY
Italy is the fourth largest European automotive market after Germany, the UK and France.
The Italian automotive industry is primarily concentrated in Torino and in Piemonte: around 35% of the 2,467 companies (with 160,000 employees) active in Italy are in fact established here (Source: Automotive Industry 2020 by ITA - Italian Trade Agency).
Piemonte and its capital Torino, birthplace of Fiat, then Stellantis, are not only the core of the national automotive industry, but of European car and mobility technology. Piemonte is the forerunner in Italy in terms of automotive and transportation components companies:
- 33,3% OF THE ITALIAN AUTOMOTIVE AND TRANSPORTATION COMPONENTS INDUSTRY IS IN PIEMONTE
- 730 AUTOMOTIVE AND TRANSPORTATION COMPONENTS COMPANIES
- 32,5 OF THE ITALIAN AUTOMOTIVE AND TRANSPORTATION COMPONENTS TURNOVER IS IN PIEMONTE
- Over 56,600 EMPLOYEES

COMPREHENSIVE KNOW-HOW AND A COMPLETE SUPPLY CHAIN DEVOTED TO THE FUTURE
Piemonte’s automotive & transportation production encompasses the entire supply chain from the upstream phases to the final products, offering business and know-how from the concept of the vehicle till its delivery: project planning, prototyping, styling, robotics and automation, components and mass production, industrialisation of the product and driving test.
The tradition of “knowing how to make cars” has always been preserved while being reinterpreted to match changing market request and available technologies. Moreover, the role of machinery industry, R&D and design is strategic at every level. The strong leadership of Piemonte in robotics and mechatronics has fostered innovation, automation and cost-efficiency throughout the entire supply chain also by the widespread adoption of casting processes for lightweight material and new manufacturing technologies such as additive manufacturing (3D printing) technologies.
Furthermore, through the link with leading systems and technology providers (often located in the area), the supply chain is able to offer high qualified capabilities and competences on electrical and electronic architecture, including power conversion systems, safe and secure real-time communication systems, advanced human-machine interfaces and remote monitoring systems.
