The Cavaliere del Lavoro Francesco Lonati, born at Botticino on February 28, 1911, started work at 12, and year after year made professionalism into a true passion until in 1946 he founded the company that still bears his name. In 1956 Lonati presented the world’s first dual-feed machine for manufacturing stockings, in 1971 a new model of a double-cylinder circular machine for manufacturing men’s socks. In the 80s Lonati became world leaders, producing 90% of the machines for manufacturing stockings. Today the Lonati Group continues this tradition of growth and progress.
The Group run by the Lonati, the family’s holding company that can count on firm and strong industrial connotations, is an absolute world leader in the textile machinery industry, a position conquered with reliability and efficiency, with the best know-how, thanks to a continuous innovative capacity and high quality standards in products and services. With a widespread sales network, developed in more than 70 countries worldwide, the Lonati Group is a secure point of reference open to all markets, from those in emerging countries to Europe, Asia and America. Concrete management principles, skilled staff, teamwork and family traditions are the basis and the motivation that have fueled a commercial and operational success that has lasted more than 60 years.
Made up of several independent companies with different characteristics and functions, from industry to agriculture, from real estate to education, the Group is characterized by a single working method, which can be summed up in three key words: reliability, efficiency and organization.
The Lonati Group’s presence in the strategically important engineering sector responds to the strategy of ensuring a high technological profile, which characterizes all its production of textile machinery thanks to collaboration with major companies and product diversification. In this sector the Lonati Group is represented by ADB, a leading company that operates in the light structural metalwork market and manufacturing for third parties and which produces MotoParking, marketed by the subsidiary MP Italia, present now for many years in the distribution of products for the automotive industry.
The entry of companies in the engineering sector into the orbit of the Lonati Group has had the positive effect of optimizing performance. The processes are carried out on the most advanced technological principles, using state-of-the-art machinery, such as laser machining centers, bending machines, surface application spreaders and welding systems. technological systems, processes and machinery, capable of guaranteeing the utmost precision, absolute reliability and high quality standards.
