2016-09-14 / The new powerCUBE range with AGM technology for commercial vehiclesThe new powerCUBE range with AGM technology for commercial vehicles
FIAMM reasserts its technological leadership by introducing the new, very high performance FIAMM powerCUBE AGM range for commercial vehicles at Automechanika 2016 (Frankfurt, 13-17 September).
Strength, durability and reliability are the concepts which inspired the engineering of these batteries destined to become the market benchmark in terms of performance and long-lasting operation.
To respond to the demands of an increasingly more technological market and continuing along the path traced a few years ago with the introduction of new batteries for commercial vehicles, FIAMM developed the powerCUBE range with AGM (Absorbent Glass Material) technology in the most market common sizes (type B and C) for vehicles requiring cranking power in critical conditions, discharging/charging cycle durability and vibration resistance.
2016-08-29 / FIAMM, innovation leader, at Automechanika 2016FIAMM, innovation leader, at Automechanika 2016
This year FIAMM will be present as usual at the important appointment at Automechanika Frankfurt, the international tradeshow for the automotive service industry, from September 13 to 17.
FIAMM will showcase its latest product innovations, starting from FIAMM Ecoforce starter batteries, available with AGM or AFB® technologies and specifically designed to equip the new Micro HEV cars, to the recently renovated FIAMM Titanium range for traditional cars, synonymous with high performance, power, reliability and safety.
The FIAMM energyCUBE and powerCUBE battery ranges secure higher energy for commercial vehicles, better cranking power in critical conditions, discharging/charging cycle durability and resistance to deep discharge cycles and vibrations.
For the market of commercial vehicles, FIAMM will exhibit powerCUBE and energyCUBE, the batteries developed to satisfy the various application requirements, always ensuring great starting power in critical conditions, better endurance to charge/discharge cycles and high resistance to intense discharges and vibrations.
Moreover, two brand new models which will represent the top of the powerCUBE range, will be showcased in a first-ever preview at Automechanika.
The Motor Energy battery line, dedicated to the two wheels, will be presented, too, along with the latest horns and antennas developments: PS WARN, a pedestrian horn system that allows the audibility of low noise vehicles, such as hybrid and electric cars and SM20 and SM21, the antennas designed to add DAB radio in any vehicle, connecting it with the smartphone via Bluetooth wireless technology.
We are looking forward to seeing you at our booth n°C10, Hall 4.1! Don’t miss it!
2016-02-19 / Revealed during the convention the positive results of the FIAMM businessRevealed during the convention the positive results of the FIAMM business
The annual FIAMM Sales Network Convention, that this year took place in Cortina d’Ampezzo, ended with success. It has involved the FIAMM Italian sales networks of Mobility & Reserve Power Solutions business. Nearly 30 agents from around the country participated in numerous working meetings with the Sales, Marketing and General Management, who took the opportunity to reveal the positive results of the year just ended.
For Top Management, this was the opportunity to reveal a preview of the 2015 business results, which indicate a +6% revenue growth, up from 584 million in 2014 to 620 in 2015, reaching a total of 620 million euros.
These numbers are a success also for the various business areas concerned which during 2015 stood out by achieving major growth and market share consolidation results.
More in detail, Mobility Power Solutions (products and solutions for the mobility of today and tomorrow) closed 2015 in the positive with sales up by approximately 7%, nearly 8 million items sold worldwide and a revenue of 257 million euros, +10% compared to 2014. These results are especially significant considering the overall market situation which despite the pick-up in new car registrations still has to reach pre-crisis levels. Significant is the growth in the OE business area, driven by the sales of batteries for cars fitting Stop&Start systems. It is expected that 2016 will be full of new challenges in the OE area with the looming deadline for the new CO2 emission limits with which car makers need to comply by 2020. In the Aftermarket area, over four million parts were sold marking a 8.6% increase in exports. Ever more foreign partners are choosing FIAMM for their markets because of product quality and the visibility of a brand which is increasingly well known worldwide.
