Focused on electric urban mobility solutions, Platum gest new funds to invest in export
Koinos Capital SGR and HAT SGR closed of the acquisition of a majority stake in Platum, for a value of approximately 57 million euros. Founded in Calderara di Reno (Bologna) in 1977 by Emanuele Summa and Viviano Vece, Platum has gradually become a reference point in the urban electric mobility sector, thanks to its e-mobility division.
Led by Alessandro Summa, Platum is now focused on the development of projects for sustainable urban mobility, offering electric scooters and e-bikes in collaboration with the main players in the automotive sector. Sustainability and Made in Italy are the company's guidelines: Platum developed the Argento by Pininfarina brand and urban electric mobility lines in collaboration with Ducati, Aprilia, Lamborghini, Jeep, Alfa Romeo, Lancia and VR46 (Valentino Rossi's brand for the racing market).
Platum’s e-mobility division has become the cornerstone of the Group, growing from 35 million euros in turnover in 2020 to about 60 million euros in 2021 and projects to reach 100 million euros in 2022.
"Platum is today a leading company in the European urban electric mobility market with a 20% share of scooters in Italy and the leadership in e-bikes in the modern distribution channel. Foreign markets such as France, Spain, UK, Benelux, Poland, Turkey, the Middle East, Australia, today represent about 50% of revenues, but we believe that in 3 years exports will represent 70% of our estimated revenues of 300 million euros", explained Alessandro Summa
