All the talents of the company and its shareholders are mobilized to make it a world leader and promote hydrogen as a key technology for zero-emission mobility.”
For his part, Fabio Ferrari affirms:
“The creation of Symbio and its first years of development were a great human and entrepreneurial experience. The realization of this vision was made possible by the exceptional commitment of the Symbio teams. Thanks to them, the company has been able to overcome all the challenges to make this emerging technology a sustainable solution for zero-emission mobility. Today hydrogen is on the roadmap for many countries and mobility players. With the help of our shareholders, we have made the start-up Symbio a company capable of becoming a world leader. A new chapter opens.”
