The Group

Italian Heart, Global Machinery


It was 1952 when Silvio Chiaravalli began to realize his dream of "building mechanisms to help man in his daily life" on the slopes of the Lombardy Alps.

It's been 70 years to today and its legacy is a global multi-sector group built on solid foundations laid in the post-World War II Italian context.

The Chiaravalli Group is today structured into four commercial divisions which cover Industrial, OEM, Food and Motorcycle.

 Chiaravalli Group represents today a unique synthesis of passion, technical know-how,  and   tradition.

Values, mission, vision, certifications

Values ​​and vision

Chiaravalli means mechanics since 1952, when Silvio Chiaravalli embarked on his dream to move the world with his gears.

Over the decades, the productive soul has been able to evolve by keeping its roots firm: on the one hand the opportunities offered from the increasingly global markets and on the other the Italian passion in mechanical manufacturing. 

70 years of history deliver to us a reality in which the third generation of the family is innovating the road traced in the second after war by offering the market a unique combination of manufacturing excellence and commercial force, oriented towards new opportunities while staying solid in its foundations.



The history and the group evolution have always aimed at becoming a technological and strategic partner for our customers, providing at the same time a wide range of products and a highly qualified technical service.

Company investments and developments are always oriented to improve the service offered to our customers, in terms of speed, customizations and support to thier technical and strategical needs;
