The company was founded in 1960 by three brothers, Renato, Luciano and Corrado Brevini, in the town of Reggio Emilia (Italy). Since then, the name of Brevini has become synonymous with planetary gear units.
For more than 40 years now we have been developing and refining a technology of which the prominent attributes are a competitive price/performance ratio, compactness, modular design and reliability, all achieved even in extreme situations.
From the very start we have had the world as our market, and today Brevini maintains a presence around the globe, with 24 subsidiaries and an extensive distribution network.
The latest 10 years saw a significant increase in sales, from 86 to 315 million euros, also in jobs, from 470 to 1.200, and in output, which rose from 67.000 to 172.000 gearboxes per annum.
Encouraged by this positive response from the market, we now aim to expand further worldwide and widen our range of offerings through acquisitions and agreements on the key power transmission markets.
A further step has already been taken in this direction with the acquisition of PIV Drives GmbH, a German company with a long and historic tradition (founded 1928) in the field of mechanical power transmission.
