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
Italy (6 plants), Brazil, China, Mexico, Romania and Slovakia. Askoll products provide high performance and quality thanks to design capabilities with seamless integration of product development and production processes. Products for aquariums and ponds combine superior technology and ease of use, ensuring the well-.being of aquatic ecosystems. The new products for the latest generation of heating systems comply fully with European eco-design standards on energy performance. The components in Askoll devices give a competitive advantage to customers in terms of materials and energy savings. On the strength of its solid experience, the Askoll Group has launched a new line of business involving the production and sale of electric vehicles for urban mobility, which substantially reduces fuel consumption (benefit for the user and emissions (benefit for the company).
