Based in Italy, the Askoll Group was founded in 1978 on a revolutionary and inspired idea of founder, Elio Marioni: synchronous technology applied to electric motors. Synchronous technology enables the development of electric motors to save more than 50% of energy compared to conventional electric motors. Maintaining the same motor power means that smaller engines can be produced, saving on materials such as copper and iron and contributing to environmental sustainability. Initially developed for the aquarium industry, the technology was later extended to household appliances, heating systems and, after years of research, to urban mobility .
Today, the Group consists of 11 companies operating in strategic locations around the world
