Assofluid is the Italian Association of Manufacturing and Trading Companies in Fluid Power Equipment and Components. In the 50s, some companies in the sectors started to work together. In 1962, Cetop – European Oil Hydraulic and Pneumatic Committee, was formed.
Approximately six years later, in February 1968, these companies decided to unite founding Assofluid. In more than forty years of activity, the Association has grown significantly going from the 13 founding members to the present membership of 190 companies. These companies represent 70% of the Italian market and employee approximately more than 14,000 people.
Assofluid joins Confindustria, the leading organisation representing manufacturing and service companies in Italy, and Federmacchine – National Federation of Associations of Manufacturers of Capital Goods intended for Industrial and Handicrafts Manufacturing Processes – which represents eleven associations of machinery manufacturers. Assofluid members are the leaders in the industry and are exporting their products around the world more than ever before.
