Piaggio is an Italian company specializing in the production of scooters and motorcycles.
The main production site is the city of Pontedera, Pisa province, Tuscany region, Italy.
Piaggio is the fourth largest motorcycle and scooter manufacturer in the world, controlling 40 percent of the market, produces more than 600 thousand units annually, with five research centers with more than 6,700 employees.
The distribution network of the enterprise has covered more than 50 countries around the world.
The history of the oldest motorcycle company in Italy began on September 5, 1884, when Enrico Piaggio acquired a plot of land in Sestri Ponente (Genoa) with the aim of creating a wood processing plant that would supply wood for shipbuilding.
Soon, his father's project was joined by his son, Rinaldo, who left his father a few years later and created Piaggio & C in 1887, whose main specialization was shipbuilding.
Expansion of the global market soon became a priority for Piaggio. Vespa licenses were acquired by many foreign companies, such as Douglas (England), Hoffmann (Germany), Allstate (USA).
Although Vespa continued to be a success and exports continued to grow, development of the Piaggio Ape scooter began in 1948 and became one of the key quarters for the resumption of commercial activity during the national renaissance.
The following year, Moscone was created, a small, innovative motor. In 1959, Piaggio became part of the Agnelli family, owners of the automobile company FIAT.
In 1969, Piaggio & C took control of Gilera di Arcore, one of the oldest motorcycle manufacturers in Europe, especially renowned for its sporting achievements.
In 1973, the production of Bravo motorcycles began, and the production of tractors was also launched.
A new expansion took place in 1981 when the Bianchi plant was acquired.
The company also experienced a slight crisis due to the drop in Vespa sales, but all costs were offset by the introduction of new models such as the Cosa, Superbravo, Grillo and ApeCar D during 1987 and 1988.
In 1999, control of Piaggio & C passed to Morgan Grenfell Private Equity.
On April 6, 2004, the management of Piaggio signed a strategic agreement with the Chinese holding company Zongshen for the production and marketing of engines, vehicles and parts in the Asian market.
