Entry into the automotive industry

In 1978, Brovedani starts production of automotive components, such as the steering box for the Yugoslavian group Soko, which manufactures under licence to TRW. The new technical structure works and grows with the development of a cold formed blank and the use of diversified technologies, from chip removal to roll forming, and from induction hardening to non-destructive tests. Piaggio welcomes the company amongst its suppliers in 1979 and recognizes its excellent production standards.
