Altamura, (South Italy). The Officine Fiore workshop has been active in the industrial automotive field since 1953 and is specialised in the repair of commercial, farming, industrial, marine and track-based vehicles.
As the proprietor, Giovanni Fiore, explains, “Thanks to our experience we work with very high numbers and we make more than 4,000 repairs each year; we have over 2,500 customers throughout Europe.
Guaranteed service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and a fully-equipped mobile workshop for emergency intervention.”
What makes you unique?
“The force of 21 highly specialised and constantly updated technicians, a warehouse of 600 sq.m with plenty of original products available from the main manufacturers. By uniting these two factors we have been able to reduce the length of working time as well as downtime, with an estimated saving of 20%. Moreover we have UNI EN ISO 9001 certification.”
When did you start dealing with SABO products?
“We have used and sold SABO shock absorbers and suspensions ever since they came onto the market, for at least three generations, beginning with Filippo Fiore who, in 1973, twenty years after we opened, entered the spare parts market, later handing over to Giovanni who then, together with his son, inaugurated Officine Fiore S.r.l. in 2009.”
Which are the most outstanding features of SABO products?
“Certainly the speed of deliveries, excellent quality products, and the wide range of articles in the catalogue. This allows us to meet all the requirements and requests of our customers. Another aspect which our organisation considers to be fundamental is the possibility of technical assistance for any kind of problem we come up against whilst working on repairs, and it’s always very fast and efficient.”
Do you have any particular plans for the future?
“Thanks to our experience and innovation we have become a consolidated reality, present throughout Italy and with a growing presence abroad. In view of this growth we have decided to invest and we’re moving to a new 10,000 sq.m premises.”
