Electro-mem produces and markets its chargers and jump starters.

Schumacher Electric, a designer and manufacturer of battery chargers and jump starters, acquired an Italian battery charger and jump starter company, Electro-mem S.R.L.

“We were extremely impressed with Electro-mem’s entire operation,” stated Schumacher President Cory Watkins. “From the leadership of Bruno and Filippo Moro to the reliability, performance, and design of the entire Electro-mem product range, this company fits perfectly within the Schumacher family.”

Electro-mem, founded in 1976 by Elio Moro, has achieved positive results both nationally and internationally in the production and marketing of its innovative and high quality chargers and jump starters.

“Enthusiasm and commitment to excellence are key factors for me and my brother, Filippo,” Bruno Moro, Electro-mem’s general manager, said. “It is clear that Schumacher shares these principles, making this an ideal partnership."

Schumacher will keep the entire team, including the Moro Brothers, in the new modern production facility in Crespano del Grappa (TV). They will work closely with Schumacher Europe’s staff in Harze, Belgium.

“Schumacher has been a family business since 1947,” CEO Don Schumacher said. “Likewise, Electro-mem is a family business that thinks the way we do: always take care of the customer.”
