Umbra Cuscinetti S.p.A. was created in 1972 and it is today the parent company of UmbraGroup. The Group has achieved great success in its 40 years history and currently consists of four subsidiaries:


UmbraGroup is a cutting-edge manufacturing company in the aeronautics and industrial sectors. It is the world leader in producing recirculating ballscrews in the aeronautics sector. UmbraGroup has recently strengthened its position in the supply of products aimed at the energy market.

Long-term investments in Research and Development have resulted in considerable growth in Umbra’s product portfolio.

Product Portfolio:

Electromechanical actuators (EMA):

Targeted at the aeronautics, energy and industrial market, EMA’s feature compact dimensions and noise-free operation, low consumption, high performance, reliability, high performance and low cost. They are a perfect combination of mechanical components such as bearings, recirculating ballscrews, gears with motors (traditional Umbra products), electronics and software.

The Technical Service, with its main base in Umbra Cuscinetti S.p.A in Foligno, has created long-time, close working relationships with Italian and foreign Universities and Research Centers. This has created a rewarding sense of teamwork and solid network of cooperation.

Over the years the Group has developed preferential relationships with the Research and Development Departments of our major customers, thus achieving the goal of customized production: customization involves all stages of the production process, beginning with design.

UmbraGroup has thus become a strategic supplier of major companies worldwide, such as Boeing, Airbus, British Airways, Lufthansa, KLM, Lockheed Martin, Trumpf and Mori Seiki.

Continuous improvements to processes and services and the development of human resources have always constituted the company guidelines.
