DENSO Thermal Systems S.p.A.

Manufacture and assembly of heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning units and engine cooling modules

DENSO Thermal Systems S.p.A. was established in 1987 as Magneti Marelli Climatizzazione at a time when the Fiat Group and Magneti Marelli decided to enter the growing car air-conditioning industry.

In 1990 a joint venture was set up with DENSO Corporation (Nippondenso, at the time), world leader in the industry, leading the company into a phase of rapid growth with a build-up in R&D structures, producing technologies and competencies, a stronger presence in European markets and growth and expansion in activities and production facilities.

In 2001 DENSO acquires full ownership of the Company that adopts the name DENSO Thermal Systems S.p.A.. This allows the company to become a fully fledged part of the Group, world leader in the field of automotive thermal systems.

DENSO Thermal Systems S.p.A. headquarters are in Poirino (Torino), covering an area of 118,500 sq. m. hosting the Company's Top Management, Administration, Engineering, Testing and an important production factory. Picture right top.

Production also takes place in two other plants in Italy: Avellino (picture right middle and bottom) and Cassino (Frosinone).

The Company is continuously expanding and concentrating its product research and development on continuous innovation with constant attention paid to quality.
