Magneti Marelli’s energy, interest and investments are all aimed at technology. Our mission is to deal with technological challenges of automobiles and of future mobility: sustainability, safety, connected cars and affordable mobility. We supply users with many solutions that are flexible, cost-effective and yet feature a high technological content, solutions that answer the pressing questions concerning progress and evolution of the automotive world. We push towards solutions that are sustainable at both the environmental and economic level, with innovative contents even in terms of emission reduction, consumption and safety. We satisfy the need, through telematics and infomobility, to connect cars to the huge world of communication networks, Internet and services, especially in order to govern and monitor their uses and flows, optimise their operating costs and emissions, and bring value-added information and entertainment onboard the vehicle.
Another Magneti Marelli’s distinguishing feature is our truly genuine global approach. At the bottom of it all there is the idea of being effectively close to our customers and therefore being able to offer them the best support possible. Then there is a dynamics of “exchange” and osmosis that is created in the network of our operations and localisations throughout the world: technologies and ideas born in one place around the world come back improved for further applications, applications stimulate ideas and so on, involving people and workers on all continents in a common growth. In order to sustain this type of globalisation, an “open” approach is needed, and this is another characteristic that can be associated with Magneti Marelli vision. The concept of Openness can be referred to many contexts:
- Technological openness: one of the challenges we face is the one to keep systems accessible and linkable, inside a complex structure as it is today a car, as witnessed by our commitment in electronics and communication open platforms;
- Cultural openness: drawing the best from differences (which are a precious resource), from integration, from partnerships, from points of contact between many worlds, approaches, humanities and cultures, not only technological ones, which are part of our company, and turning them into a unique and winning mix in which the whole enhances and improves the parts that make up the whole;
- Business model openness: we look for the best partners with whom to achieve our objectives, and we are open to finding the best ways and the best methods with which to cooperate with them, encouraging common growth and improving performances.
In this sense, then, our motto “ A part of…..” perfectly summarises these elements and our role: being an active part of a system – whether it is the automobile, the mobility or the market – and make integration between all the “parts” easier.
