A new company is born from the partnership between e-Novia and Agrati: TOKBO

TOKBO is an Intelligent Talking Bolt Network, a system that brings Internet of Things to the fastener industry, setting the benchmark for mechanical components that integrate digital electronics. The Enterprise is born from a joint venture that combines Agrati’s international leadership in the production and marketing of fastening solutions with the expertise of e-Novia in the creation and growth of Enterprises operating in the field of deep tech applied to precision mechanics.

 

TOKBO develops devices for the constant and remote monitoring of both temporary infrastructures, such as scaffolding, and static infrastructures, such as buildings, bridges and road protection systems. TOKBO offers new and more effective safety standards and simplifies critical maintenance operations.

 

The smart solution consists of hardware products, with structural bolts that become probes for monitoring the clamping force, vibration and temperature; electronics and digital platforms that constantly analyze the key components, visible and non-visible, of the structures to monitor their compliance and conservation status, as well as maintenance services for security purposes.

 

The company, controlled by Agrati, provides for an investment plan of 1.8 million euros for the establishment and launch of the joint venture. The Board of Directors has appointed Andrea Costantini (Executive Vice President Agrati) as Chairman of the Company and Ivan Moroni as CEO. The Board draws on the expertise and experience of Paolo Pozzi (CEO Agrati), Vincenzo Russi (Co-founder and CEO e-Novia) and Ivo Boniolo (Co-founder and COO e-Novia).

 

As commented by Ivo Boniolo, COO of e-Novia: «The joint venture with Agrati is a confirmation of the value that can be generated in Italy through corporate venture capital, when the industry, expertise and technical-scientific culture of the deep tech sector combine. Thanks to TOKBO we respond today, with civil industry 4.0 solutions, to the demand for smart infrastructure».
