To enhance its many years of research and development work on electromobility, in 2017 GROB bought out DMG meccanica – Italy's leading manufacturer of machines and systems for producing electric motor and generator stators. The production plant, which changed its name to GROB Italy S.r.l. in 2018, has extensive knowledge of electromobility, and also service and sales expertise in the universal machining center and system solutions divisions.
With the hundred percent takeover of DMG meccanica, GROB is pursuing its long-term strategy of diversifying its product portfolio. Already capable of offering and supplying all manufacturing processes for electric drives, the GROB Group continues to successfully support the automotive industry as a competent and dependable partner as it undergoes the transformation to alternative types of drive. In this process, the Italian production plant is playing a key role within the GROB Group alliance to secure positive future prospects for the company.
