About us


Our story starts in the mid-70s with the development and manufacture of entire HVAC systems mainly for passenger cars, whilst from the 80s onwards we have been focusing mainly on electronic control units.


Nowadays the impact of new technologies on the market, the increasing complexity of the automotive E/E applications and new regulations, especially related to safety and environmental protection, have brought new challenges for our customers.

As a result of this, we have strengthened our expertise in different areas, such as the Cooling of the Batteries for Electronic Vehicles, the integration of a standardized CAN protocol in a AUTOSAR compliant environment, the definition of the specifications for the latest CAT4 Application or the implementation of cybersecurity standards on our ECU.

This is why COMES has become a strategic partner for many major Tier1 and OEMs.

“Our main asset is the trust of our customers, we work hard every day not just to meet but to exceed their expectations”
Nicola Stagni
