Loccioni integrates ideas, people and technologies in developing automated measurement and quality control systems to improve the quality, the efficiency and the sustainability of products and processes.

The commitment is measuring to improve, thus helping all those who manufacture products or offer services to do it in the best way possible, thereby saving time, money and respecting the environment.


Clients and partners are world leaders in their markets, from Automotive to Home Appliances, from Environment and Energy to Health Care Technology, from Train & Transport to Aerospace and Agriculture.
Research & Development and an innovative mindset are the foundations of our work. Winning first place at the Bayer Grants4Tech Robotic Challenge and obtaining the Bosch Global Supplier Award in the Test Bench Equipment category in 2017 are some of the results of the creative and passionate work of our 450 collaborators. In Loccioni, people are the core value and thanks to their commitment we collect the highest technological challenges to give our little contribution to the wellbeing of people and planet.

Loccioni encourages and practices learning across all generations. It is our aim to stimulate the interest and passion for innovation and technology early on. This is why every year we host more than 1000 pupils from ages 6 to 18 as well as University students at Loccioni who collaborate and interact for some time with our collaborators – to learn from each other and to grow together.

Thanks to a Public-Private-Partnership with the municipality of Apiro, Loccioni is working on a project of Rural Innovation: the revitalization of Saint Clemente Valley. It includes the valorization of Saint Urbano Abbey, a beautiful Romanic church of the 11th century and the heart of the Valley. In this area, where Enrico Loccioni was born and owns some land, the idea is to create an Innovation Hub for the Agriculture of the Future. Data science, robotics interconnected systems and the Internet of Things combined with the concept of sustainability and the ancient traditions of the local agriculture shall represent a reference model for the development and enhancement of rural areas.
San Clemente Valley is going to be one of the first real examples of a circular economy, it will prove that it is possible to create balance between man and nature, tradition and innovation. The honey laboratory and the “sensorized” beehives, the energy of the sun, the automatic irrigation of olive trees, the prevention of wasting water and instead the collection of rain water are only a starting point.

You will discover the “Land Of Values”, which is not only an acronym for the Loccioni agricultural holding LOV, but the valorization of Le Marche, a region that encloses the simple and modest values of the farming culture. Loccioni, whose origins are closely bound to this culture, collaborates with some partners of the territory in order to enhance the local suppliers and make the experience in this land a beautiful and unforgettable moment.
LOV means taking care of guests and customers, introducing them in a friendly and confidential family-life atmosphere, giving them the chance to savor the good and healthy food coming from this beautiful land.
