2013

FIVE is a project created by the owner of TERMAL Group who, strong of his know how and experience in the Asian market, understands that the company’s success cannot take place regardless of relocating the production from China to Italy, thus making the native made in Italy a unique and refined product.

So FIVE – Fabbrica Italiana Veicoli Elettrici is born, an industrial factory whose technology is able to guarantee not only the living comfort but also the energy required for its own production. A factory for the production of electric bikes and mopeds, energetically self-sufficient and built with products that can ensure efficiency and reduction of consumptions, following the principles of nZEB (nearly Zero Energy Building).

2014

The construction of FIVE factory begins. At the same time, the production of Solingo moped is started and the Made 2.0 line is launched – with WAYEL brand – inaugurating the new production cycle of the electric bikes designed and built in Italy. The products are manufactured in the handicraft atelier prepared by the company, waiting for the new FIVE factory’s works to be completed.

2015

Selected among more than 1000 candidates, the company attends the Universal Exhibition 2015  as a guest in Intesa Sanpaolo’s ‘home’, in THE WATERSTONE pavilion. This participation is intended to represent the quality and excellence of made in Italy, and to tell the ambitious back-reshoring project with which FIVE intends to bring back the production of its own electric vehicles from China to Italy.

2016

The expansion of the company consolidates in the spring-summer 2016:  FIVE acquires ITALWIN, the historic Italian brand tied to the production of pedal assist bikes since 2003. In summer 2016, with LOCKBIKE cycling stations, a new market segment was inaugurated, dedicated to automated bike parking and hybrid bike sharing systems.

2017

On May 22nd, 2017 FIVE factory officially opened its headquarters. The opening event, inaugurated by the Minister of the Environment Gian Luca Galletti marks a new start, launching in the industrial field an important sign of confidence both for the Emilia region and for the whole country: in this way, the Italian entrepreneurs can embrace with courage the new environmental challenge.
