The Owners

Breton was first established in 1963 by Marcello Toncelli, who perceived the enormous potential in developing a market which was absolutely innovative and at the time practically unexplored in the engineering sector.
The founder's farsighted entrepreneurship and his enormous aptitude for developing groundbreaking ideas were the assets that enabled the company to rapidly grow becoming a first-rate industrial reality in just few years, and later to become the world front-line leader. In the nineties, Breton forced its way in the field of high speed numerical control machining centres, becoming in few years one of the world most important manufacturers.
Breton S.p.A. is under the control of Luca and Dario Toncelli, which run the company with the collaboration of the founder's long-time partner, Roberto Chiavacci, who holds the office of Vice President of the Board of Directors.
