A champion in the history of Italian mechanical engineering 

Belleli Energy, avant-garde mechanics to be successful in the world

High technology, punctual deliveries, high safety standards in the workplace, these are the strengths of Belleli Energy, a company based in Mantova that dates back to 1947, and which has all the credentials to be considered a champion in the history of Italian mechanical engineering and of the chemical and petrochemical industries.
The company is one of the top ten in the sector in Europe.
Starting in the Sixties, it has focussed on avant-garde mechanical design and the use of innovative materials.
The company’s history shows how an Italian ownership that is integrated in the operations of a company is often fundamental for development and sustainable growth. In fact, Belleli Energy is starting a re-launching phase after a difficult period thanks to the takeover by the Tosto Group. During the previous phase, under American leadership, the company underwent a period of varying fortune connected to the trends of the oil market and of certain machinery on which Belleli Energy was focussing. When it was doing well, Belleli Energy also benefitted from it, but with the oil and Refinery sector crisis, the company ended up paying the consequences.
The result, as the present CEO Paolo Fedeli explains, was a company strategy that aimed at a strong containment of costs to the detriment of innovation and product diversification.
The takeover by the Tosto Group has resulted in a repositioning on the market of the Mantova Group with a long term strategy. This entails expanding the Production range and the geographical areas of interest in order to balance the fluctuations that can occur between products in various sectors (Gas, Fertilizers, Chemicals, Petrochemicals and Oil Refinery). “The more sectors you can serve, the more you can compensate for the world cycles” Fedeli states.
Ninety-nine percent of Belleli business is located abroad because the refining, petrochemical and chemical industry in Italy has been shrinking for the last ten years, and nobody has invested structurally in the sector. However, thanks to the focus on exporting, made in Italy technology continues to be competitive and appreciated by the end Consumers. Belleli Energy is betting on excellence, on the diversification of products, and on technological development. Obviously all this has a cost in the short term, but the leaders of Belleli Energy are convinced that cutting development investments results in exiting the market in the long term.
The areas of expansion are America, Eastern Europe and Russia, the Middle East including Iran, and the developing Countries of South East Asia. Belleli is also one of the few manufacturers of pressure equipment for nuclear energy production plants in Europe. 
Having overcome the critical purchase-sale period, and now that the continuity of the company is guaranteed, productivity is destined to increase. The deadlines for the job orders that are currently underway have been adhered to, and to date no delay penalties have been applied by any Customers.
Another key aspect of the company strategy is training and research. From 2017 the welding and boiler-making school will open again using education, when necessary, as a means to build up and train the highly specialised workers of Belleli Energy of the future. The relationship with the technical colleges has also been restored in order to offer work experience to the students. In the last three years of high school students will undergo practical hands-on experience and training in the company. In addition, a research project in collaboration with the Universities of Modena and Reggio Emilia is underway.
Belleli Energy is also committed to protecting the environment and to containing polluting emissions. In general, the mechanical industry does not have a polluting manufacturing sector, nor does it damage the surrounding area, however, as the company is located in an Industrial Petrol and Petrochemical hub, inside the physical perimeter of the plant there is a network of wells to monitor possible sources of pollution.
