About us


AGLA:
innovation
takes shape



Today, we are used to talking about Torsional Vibration Dampers, but there is a long history of men, markets and technological challenges behind the latest AGLA innovation. To be more specific, the company can trace its origins back to 1962, when Giacomo Bonù started constructing sheet metal stamping dies in the basement of his home.

In the following years the scope of the business was extended to stamping and production, segments that were developed to the point of requiring a dedicated company to be set up: in 1977 AGLA opened its doors as a company specialising in sheet metal stamping and component assembly. Today AGLA is a global leader in the cold plastic deformation of steel, expertise that translates into innovative technological solutions dedicated to components for engines and automatic transmissions. A point of reference for leading international car makers, AGLA is known worldwide for its torsional vibration dampers and pulleys, bestsellers in a range that includes components for automatic transmissions, flexplates and other moulded components. In a market replete with multinationals, AGLA has always managed to be competitive thanks to its distinctive characteristics: innovation, specialisation and speed - qualities that make up the DNA of a dynamic player with a great desire to grow. In 2016 AGLA entered a new phase in its development with the acquisition of the French company Techform, which under the new name of AGLA FORM has significantly increased production capacity and the presence of an increasingly international company for European customers.

Mission


The goal of the AGLA Group



The AGLA group works to develop solid and lasting opportunities and relationships with all its stakeholders: whether a customer or an employee, a supplier or a representative of the communities in which we operate, our aim is to build a relationship of mutual trust, based on respect, collaboration and fairness.

We are convinced that a company’s success comes from individual success: our main competitive factors are the involvement, motivation and passion of people, people who can transform the impossible into the possible. This is why AGLA is committed to creating the right conditions for each of our employees to achieve their personal and professional goals and to feel an active and central part of the Group's successes.


 

Value
comes from values



Value cannot be created without values: the challenges, objectives and results of an industrial group come from its people and not from the organisation of the plant, and AGLA’s story reflects the values of all the people who have helped shape our business idea for over fifty years.

 


History

A passion spanning
three generations



The history of AGLA is a prime example of the best Italian entrepreneurial tradition: in the 80’s the founder Giacomo Bonù brought his son into the management of the business, then more recently the baton was passed on to his grandchildren.

AGLA’s soundness is rooted in the industrial passion that binds the members of the family and it is no wonder that investments have always been directed towards product and process innovation, far from any temptation of financial speculation. The third generation of AGLA managers has inherited a major industrial legacy with the aim of relaunching international growth, a challenge that is tackled by encouraging a young team (with an average age of 34) to innovate at every level, a form of active participation in creating value.
