Manufacturing facilities in Italy
MADE IN ITALY, INNOVATION, TECHNOLOGY, AND CARE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
The Industria Italiana Autobus production facilities are located in Bologna and Flumeri (AV).
Our two Italian sites, in addition to attesting 'Made in Italy' quality, also express the company's potential in terms of know-how and production capacity. The Research and Development centre and the Production Departments make Industria Italiana Autobus one of the few European manufacturers that are involved in all stages of the production process, from the design of urban public transport systems to production, from frame construction to cataphoresis, from painting and bonding to the final assembly.
The construction of buses has been in the company's core business for over 100 years: Industria Italiana Autobus evolved from the Menarini and C. company, founded in 1919.
It is in this scenario that the reshoring and industrialisation programmes and the expansion of production capacity took place, with the product range in Italy increasing from 35 to 287 vehicles in two years (2018-2020).
