A Mediterranean partnership

The company’s CEO of AS LABRUNA, Massimo Labruna, said: «I am very pleased with the partnership with CMD. What we have in common is not just a simple parent-distributor relationship but the vision of a different future in the propulsion sector. An innovative future where performance goes hand in hand with respect for the environment, a crucial point of our corporate purpose. While other engine manufacturers aim to improve the efficiency of diesel and invest a lot of resources in this, we believe that the future is the revised diesel engine with electrification, the use of alternative fuels and the beginning of experimentation in the nautical sector of fuel cells. We must have the courage to innovate, we want to become a point of reference in the international boating industry for the supply of hybrid systems and we will do so in Puglia (editor’s note: Puglia is a region in the South-East of Italy, the so called heel of the Italian Peninsula). So get ready, Puglia is getting ready to be the silicon valley of diesel-electric».
