From Concept to Car is a cluster project born in 2002 with the main purpose of promoting the skills and capabilities of the Piemonte automotive suppliers abroad and mainly of those companies based in Torino, the hometown of the Italian automotive industry.
From Concept to Car has been providing foreign buyers with a valuable support in outsourcing activities, as it has been offering them the opportunity to get in touch with over 150 top-flight suppliers, chosen from 1,400 on the strength of their technical, qualitative and logistic capabilities.
Since 2013 From Concept to Car has been implemented within a wider project promoted by Piemonte Regional Government and Torino Chamber of Commerce and managed by Piemonte Agency for Investments, Export and Tourism and including the after-market sector.
Detailed information about all member companies — together potentially able to manufacture a vehicle from the drawing board (styling, engineering, prototyping) to mass production (tooling, automation, components and systems, assembly, logistic and services), up to after-market services — are available in the section "Complete List".
Purchasing managers wishing to find out more about the Piemonte supply proposals can apply to the From Concept to Car project team. The team will ascertrain their supply needs and arrange one-to-one meetings with the most suitable suppliers, in Piemonte or on their premises.
The team's assistance is completely free-of-charge — both for the Piemonte suppliers and foreign buyers — thanks to public financial backing.
