AMV, based in the north-east of Italy, in an area greatly interested and involved in karting, was founded in 1992 as a kart rim manufacturer. In 2008 the company was taken over by the Stefanello family who expanded the production to other magnesium components for karts such as gearwheel supports, disc housings, hubs and complete braking systems. Presently, the manufacturing of these products for third party vendors constitutes its main activity. Over the years, AMV has always distinguished itself for its dedicated and consistent work on research which recently culminated in the development of low-pressure casting and OXiTECH treatment. Two processes that allow the manufacturing of high-quality magnesium components for karts while representing a new step into the future.
