CARLO GAVAZZI Celebrates 80 Years Of Innovation & Success
Carlo Gavazzi is celebrating its 80th anniversary with new platforms for energy
management, industrial and building automation, along with the strengthening of
its research & development activities, all underpinned by continued cautious
The company opened its doors in 1931, establishing a Milan headquarters for
distribution of Johnson oil burners and Honeywell instrumentation. 1953 saw the
start of control panel manufacturing, with Carlo Gavazzi also offering turnkey
project capability for engineering, instrument supply and panel installation.
Manufacturing expanded in the 1960s through joint ventures in electromechanical
components and electronic control devices.
During 1965 sales and service companies were established in Germany,
Switzerland, Austria and The Netherlands: expanding to France, Belgium and Spain
two years later. Today, Carlo Gavazzi Automation Components operates through 21
wholly-owned sales companies and selected representatives in more than 65
countries from the Pacific Rim to the United States.
Today's strengths in renewable energy and industrial automation are spearheading
the company through its next eighty years, as CEO Vittorio Rossi explained: "We
are focused today on clearly defined sectors such as building automation,
industrial automation and control, and renewable as well as conventional energy.
Our 80th year has amply demonstrated the effectiveness of this strategy and the
development initiatives that support it."
During the 2010/2011 financial year, sales to the industrial automation segment
recorded a 50percent growth year-on- year, thanks to the introduction of new
products such as solid state relays, capacitive and inductive sensors.
Meanwhile, growth in building automation markets reached 12percent and an
exceptional sales increase of around 150percent was achieved in the renewable
"We expect to achieve similar results for the current business year", predicted
Rossi. "Our growth will be supported by continuous efforts to strengthen and
enlarge both our R&D activities worldwide and product management in Asia, in
order to improve time- to-market and better fulfil regional requirements."
Initiatives announced recently include: new platforms of inductive and
photoelectric sensors offering improved measurement accuracy and repeatability.
In addition, a new modular Universal Web Platform UWP - with integrated
management, data logging and web communication features – is poised to drive
further growth in the areas of energy efficiency and building automation.
