OUR HISTORY

Engineer Carlo Ghieri, M.G.M. Motori Elettrici founder

More than 70 years ago, after the World War II, MGM electric motors production included only few models
than today.

Next to the Italian price column there was stated the american one in US dollars. This column was blank
and often updated due to the USD rate and the inflation.

The first MGM brake motors and the autograph of our founder Ing. Carlo Ghieri.

The first brake motors were military green since the paints used were those left by in Italy by the american
soldiers, after the Second World War.

Later the motors were blue, the color that marks our brand.
