Brembo’s president warns about the possible consequences of the transformation that the automotive supply chain is undergoing. And on diesel technology he adds: “We lose leadership”
Alberto Bombassei, president of Brembo, warns about the possible consequences of the transformation of the automotive world underway in recent years with the transition from thermal to electric. He does so in Pietrasanta (Lucca) where he was awarded the Barsanti Prize dedicated to Father Eugenio Barsanti, the inventor of the internal combustion engine with Felice Matteucci born in the Tuscan town on 21 October 1821.
employment and GDP
“The transition to electric motorization – Bombassei argues – can generate growing difficulties for the Italian automotive market. We are producers of components rather than finished products and many Italian companies manufacture parts for the internal combustion engine that will gradually be abandoned. It is a topic that must be abandoned. addressed immediately because it will significantly affect employment and the national GDP itself “. The issue of employment with the advent of electric cars has also led Mercedes CEO Ola Kallenius to say in recent months that we must “start a frank conversation about jobs” by addressing the European Union as well.
The reconversion of the supply chain, explains Bombassei, “is an Italian problem but also a European one. The transition to electric mobility causes our continent to lose solid leadership in a very advanced technology such as that of diesel engines. Politics must also deal with it with commitment”.
