Brugola OEB was founded in Lissone, Italy based on the engineering experience of its founder, Egidio Brugola, as a manufacturer of washers and special rings for engines and related applications Seeking quality and innovation has been the company’s philosophy from the very beginning. The diversification of production implemented in the bolts segment led to the historical patent of the Socket Head Screw with Spiral Shank.
During the difficult years following World War II, the principle of solidarity inspired the company and its founder. In addition to providing free meals for the employess, Egidio Brugola offered personnel means of transport such as bicycles, scooters, and cars to more easily move about in a period when travel was very difficult.
With the economic boom, and under the management of Egidio’s son Giannantonio Brugola, the production range and sales areas expanded, with a decisive encouragement of exports to Europe and overseas countries. It is during this period that the foundation was laid for what would soon become a leading company in the fasteners sector. While gradually consolidating a vital niche in the automotive industry, Brugola OEB developed innovative technologies, and in the 1980s introduced the concepts of Zero Defects and Total Quality, which is the search for methods and tools that guarantee maximum safety and excellence.
Having definitively become the point of reference for the automotive industry, Brugola OEB today is at the third generation of the Brugola Family. It is Jody Brugola who today is successfully facing the new market challenges. From the automotive concept of downsizing, meaning the production of engines with increasingly higher power to displacement ratios, to the study and use of innovative raw materials and up to the advent of the electric motor. The company is projecting itself into the future with its wealth of history, experience and ability to innovate while continuing to invest in the research and development of new products for the automotive industry, and beyond
