FIAMM

FIAMM Energy Technology is a multinational company engaged in the production and distribution of batteries and accumulators for motor vehicles and for industrial use born following the separation from FIAMM Group of the business of automotive batteries and industrial batteries with lead-acid technology.

To be closer to the needs of customers FIAMM Energy Technology has about 20 commercial and technical branches (in Italy, Germany, UK, Slovakia, France, USA, Spain, Japan, Singapore, Korea, Malaysia, China and Australia to name a few) and a wide network of importers and distributors and operates with a staff of one thousand employees.

FIAMM is born in 1942 as "Fabbrica Italiana Accumulatori Motocarri Montecchio". After the war, the company concentrates on the production of batteries for automobiles and the fork lift industry. Not long after that, production is started on stationary and semi-stationary batteries, vital to a country rebuilding its industries and railroads.

In the years of mass motorization, the brand begins to appear in automobile showrooms alongside those of the most important car makers, and makes its first sally into product research and the via the production of a promotional vehicle: into motor sports. A FIAMM battery powers the Ferrari that wins the Mille Miglia in 1950. The first significant alliance with an important company is with theInnocenti Lambretta. The production of acoustic signals begins.

Thanks to the economic boom, FIAMM strengthens its organization, increases production and launches new products(the electro-pneumatic horns become a real status symbol). The company is fast approaching its position as a modern productive entity. Its presence in foreign markets is increasingly more evident, appearing at the various Motor Shows, while in motor sport its alliance with Ferrari confirms the position of prestige that the company has attained.

The car and truck battery business expands into the motorcycles market and, thanks to the quality and reliability of its products, FIAMM becomes the top supplier to Europe’s most important car manufacturers. In the stationary batteries sector, the company’s client list includes SIP, ENELand the most important engineering firms both in Italy and abroad.

The importance of stationary batteries takes off in the USA, and the company enters Europe’s two principal markets with FIAMM Germany and FIAMM France. FIAMM continues also to enhance its reputation in motor sports: rallies, Formula One, Formula Indy, the Paris-Dakar and offshore events.

After a series of important acquisitions, the Dolcetta family decides to revolutionize company management in the light of its now international dimensions.   

In 2000, a New Industrial Plan of great expansion results in the opening of new branches in the USA, the acquisition of numerous battery distributors throughout Europe and important investments in technology. In 2007, the share structure is consolidated to two family groups with Stefano Dolcetta (Managing Director) and Alessandro Dolcetta (Vice-President). 
It heralds a return to ideals of continuity, development and innovation, while dedicating a great deal of attention to motivated youth, who learned their trade within the company.

In 2017 February, FIAMM Energy Technolgy became part of the Hitachi Chemical Group.

The agreement signed on 28 November 2016 was completed within the expected time, laying the basis for the creation of the Italian-Japanese joint venture, the last act in a long process of assessment which FIAMM set up to identify a business partner with which to strengthen the strategic assets of the group and the safeguarding of the markets in which it is involved.

On 13 February 2017, “Hitachi Chemical” has completed the purchase of 51% of FIAMM Energy Technology SpA, the NewCo created following the separation of the FIAMM Group from the business of automotive batteries and industrial batteries using lead-acid technology. The FIAMM Group is a shareholder in the new company with 49% of the shares.

The joint-venture forms part of the medium-long term strategic plan of “Hitachi Chemical”, aimed at strenthening its role in the energy storage sector, by enhancing its productive capacity and its direct presence in fast-growing markets at world level.
