For those who like real and lovely stories.
Welcome in Montanari Group. How many times have you read the whole story of a company?
The Story of Montanari India starts in 2008 but Montanari Group story starts many years ago.
This time we invite you to pause a little more.
We give you a story, a real story nice to read. This story speaks about traction machines and it starts in Italy and continues from Italy to India. This is a story made of men, gearboxes, lifts, travels, cities, life. Big stories (almost) always starts with simple men.
Have you ever get the feeling that stories are hidden around the corner waiting for someone to bring them to life? A nice and beautiful story standing by for a protagonist. This has to be born in that way.
1970 - The Beginning
It was in Modena, one day in 1970.
A man, who we will call under his real name, Giulio Montanari, went towards his story.
Sure, he did not imagine how this would have work but he bravely faced it; and as any gentleman, a brave and valiant lady, named Orianna, embarked on this path beside him.
The two with a dream and a great desire to make it, looked beyond the horizon with confidence and (certainly) a dash of worry and opened their garage door starting this new adventure. (Have you ever thought about many big companies were really born in a garage?).
How did it go?
We could continue here, but we thought it is better to leaf through the pages!
1970 - 1980
So, it was exactly in that garage that the first traction pulleys saw the light…small handcrafted pieces.
It was the time of the economic boom; Italy was growing fast.
Day after day with patience, satisfactions paying off.
Investments in that years meant sacrifice tasting acrid like the sweat and metallic like the cast iron.
1975, the year of the first gearbox. Their names were just acronyms: M78 – M75 – M83. They looked like racecars, but the ride this time was vertical relieving people of the upper levels.
Now, the garage became small and the two decided to move in 9.000 sqm. A big step forward.
The new huge space was full of machines and people that worked there for bringing back dreams and hope.
That land was rumbling. A land of motors in a world that runs hard and fast.
1980 - 1990
Step by step, year after year, it is over 30 year ago that we have opened that garage door.
The new millennium has offered new markets and opportunites, more competition.
Some markets have changed, competition conditions are different and new opportunites arise.
The distance that divides us from this wonderful country is significant and to be competitive we need to work actively onsite. We decide to face the Indian challenge in a different way.
Montanari Lifts Components is established in 2008.
The new manufacturing plant is focused on design and manufacturing of traction machines and components for the indian market. Products are tailored on indian market features.
High quality, a strong customization of the product and partnership with our customers are some of the key factors of the success.
It is a decision of which we’re proud.
2010 - Today
Since its foundation until nowdays, Montanari Lifts Components has grown and it offers a high quality product and service to its customers.
More than 120 people are employed in the company. A great family.
To increase the support that we give to our customers, since 2016 we decide to develop a logistic network.
Kolkata, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Delhi are three strategic centres and we decide to open here logistic and technical support hubs.
This means shorter delivery times, products on stock and faster assistance.
Furthermore, we think that know how transfer is important. The Montanari Academy organizes trainings for the customers in order to develop new skills.
2018 is an important year. 10 years of Montanari India are celebrated. A great moment to share with customers talking about past and thinking about future.
Lift market experiences a rapid evolution and companies are following these changes.
Projections on urban development published by the WEF provide us a scenario in which migration from rural areas to the cities will intensify gradually.
In 2017 we became Montanari Group for embracing under the same name all reality belonging to us.
Made by Montanari is a synonymous of guarantee.
We are preparing for celebrating 50 years of Montanari Story and the main protagonists of this achievement , are our customers and the people that works with us.
There is a beating heart inside each Montanari product!
