At end of the fifties the initiative of some young technicians led to the experimentation and development of air conditioning systems for passenger cars. This pioneer activity look to be the first European entity producing Air Conditioning units in the automotive field. However, it is only in 1963 that AUTOCLIMA establish itself as a Company based in Candiolo, near to Torino.
All long the seventies, the production has also been oriented to household Air Conditioning systems and to Air Conditioning units for trucks. Today the core business is totally focalized to the transport air conditioning, for any type of vehicle and for any special application.
During eighties the two lines of business of AUTOCLIMA have been transferred to Magneti Marelli and Carrier Transicold, and later in 1993 Mr. Ferdinando Ferrero, (founder of FTS spa yet), together with other partners, bought them back to merge them into the current AUTOCLIMA.
Early in 2003 the new headquarters in Cambiano, closed to Torino, are finished : 25.000 sqm of modern, well structured and functional premises. Thanks to constant and punctual turn-over increases, the company growth makes Autoclima to be a leader in this field, up-to-date with the most modern models of industrial development in Europe.
