Podium Engineering established

11 May 2011

Aosta, 11 May 2011 – Three thirty-something engineers, trained in Italy’s motor city, Turin, where creativity and technical expertise meet style and entrepreneurial flair, decided to join forces and founded today the engineering firm named Podium Engineering.

The idea is a simple one: to set up a dynamic team of young engineers capable of responding to the diverse technical demands involved in designing and constructing race cars, and prototypes in general.

The aim is to align and standardise the quality of service, offering clients a single interface for activities normally carried out by separate professionals, and capitalising on the capabilities of a multi-disciplinary team with a shared background at Turin Polytechnic, on the Formula SAE competition and the Ph.D. in Mechatronic Engineering.

Podium Engineering’s mission is to capitalise on its expertise and dynamic outlook to become a leading player in the field of prototype applications, motorsports and small series automotive solutions. We want to be at the forefront of the next technological revolution, pioneering hybrid and electric powertrains and high-performance battery systems fully integrated with vehicle constraints.
