We are a company founded in Turin in 1981 with a philosophy that is still applied today: creating increasingly innovative and efficient solutions. A value that underlies our history and the quality of our products.
A rule that has contributed substantially to the growth of the company, combined with another rule, dictated by the founder: the direct relationship with customers around the world. Because, “A team of professionals is above all a team of people”.
15 Million products sold each year
Sargomma was established in Turin in the early 80s, when the auto sector was rapidly expanding. Giuseppe Sardo, the owner, collaborated with the major Turin body shops, worked side by side with the constructing engineers and provided solutions that translated into components for the interiors of the most famous cars of those years, earth-moving machines and agricultural machinery. He was independent, yet always present with customers: a value that still lives in today’s Sargomma.
Towards the end of the 80s, the earth-moving and agricultural machinery industry produced increasingly comfortable solutions to overcome the problems of the operators, who were forced to interrupt their activities in the event of rain or adverse climatic conditions.
It was during that time that Giuseppe Sardo, along with his clients’ Technical Offices, saw the possibility of including all the comfort elements that are typical of a car inside the innovative closed cabins.
His experience, combined with the quality of Sargomma components, mounted on these new machines, guaranteed an immediate success. In 1985, after his daughter Brigitte joined the company, the growth of Sargomma continues with new visions and international openness.
Verso la fine degli anni ’80 l’industria delle macchine movimento terra e macchine agricole realizza soluzioni di maggior confort per sopperire ai problemi degli operatori, fino ad allora costretti ad interrompere le attività in caso di pioggia o fenomeni avversi.
Proprio in quel momento Giuseppe Sardo, insieme con gli Uffici Tecnici dei suoi clienti, intravede la possibilità di inserire nelle innovative cabine chiuse tutti gli elementi di confort tipici di un’autovettura.
La sua esperienza unita alla qualità dei componenti Sargomma, montati su questi nuovi macchinari, gli garantiscono un successo immediato.
Nel 1985, con l’ingresso in azienda della figlia Brigitte, la crescita di Sargomma continua con visioni nuove e apertura internazionale.
Today’s company is radically different than it was almost forty years ago, except for the guiding values: being present and responding to the client directly, while seeing the difficulties as challenges.
At the end of the 90s the evolution of Sargomma is characterized by a crucial moment: a woman arrived at the helm, a novelty in a purely male sector.
Sargomma took on important choices that lead to the consolidation of the company on the national market and a focus on expanding abroad through joint ventures and partnerships, to better develop and share winning know-how, while maintaining its identity.
A concrete example bears the name Multicraft International: American manufacturer specialized in the electrical and lighting sector of the automotive, which chooses SARGOMMA s.r.l. as a partner with a view to creating a team of international pioneers who combine technical skills with a creative approach that focuses increasingly innovative solutions.
An important contribution, in this regard, was given by the experience of Enrico Maria Rosso, who was able to bring to a company like Sargomma, an open mentality typical of a multinational corporation, suggesting the best development strategies.
Furthermore, in order to certify its skills and with a view to increasing transparency towards its stakeholders, Sargomma adopted a certified management system pursuant to ISO 9001:2008 andISO/TS 16949:2009 specific for the automotive sector.
The glocal strategy (global + local) enables to maintain one’s identity, to secure business by making it more efficient and competitive and at the same time allowing it to expand by opening up to new markets.
Today Sargomma boasts a new generation of collaborators and young employees. A dynamic and largely feminine team, even in the management positions.
We’re a company on a journey; our components end up on very different means of transport all over the world: from cars to luxury sedans, from agricultural machinery to earth-moving machines, right up to yachts.
OUR NATURE IS TO KEEP MOVING FORWARD
In over 40 years we‘ve acquired a wealth of expertise, experience, contacts and an absolutely unique knowledge of the market. Our know-how is what allows Sargomma to transform clients’ ideas into real solutions and activate an industrialization process so as to create high-efficiency products. And generate solutions for the future.
“IF YOU CAN DO IT WELL, TRY TO DO IT BETTER”.
