50 years

Shaping Innovation

2023 is a very significant year for Comau. It represents the achievement of a milestone, because there are not many companies that can tell a story like ours.

A story based on growth and expansion, of challenges won and sometimes lost, of lessons learned from others.

A story based on expertise and technology, that we’ll continue to make available to all our customers and partners, both in our traditional competence areas and in brand new markets that we’re already targeting with innovative solutions.

A story of passion.

Our Roots

A story that starts from the first robotic system launched on the market in the 70s, to the technologies that in the 80s and 90s have allowed Comau to open a new era of automation, more advanced and flexible. From the global expansion that has successfully led our company into the new millennium, to the development of increasingly innovative products and systems, up to the new advanced robotics, digital and e-Mobility solutions.

Comau began as the COnsorzio MAcchine Utensili, formed in 1973 by several Torino-based small companies that were providing machinery to the Fiat Group. From the very beginning, Comau has accepted challenging projects impossible for others.
