ZAPI was formed in 1975 by Ing. Giannino Zanichelli. Mr. Zanichelli was motivated to invest in an engineering discipline – Electronic Engineering – the enormous potential, of which, at that time was only beginning to be glimpsed. In 1994 we reached a leadership position in the European market of control systems for electric vehicles. This was accomplished not only in terms of sales volume, but also in terms of the level of technology incorporated in the controls. Today, we are a well established company operating on an international level, with an increasing market share not only in Europe, but also in North America and the Far East. We supply 80% of the domestic (Italian) market, 40% of the European market, and 20% of the world market.

The global headquarters are located in Poviglio, Italy and is equipped with a modern, state-of-the-art, meeting facility. In addition, Zapi operates subsidiaries in the Untied States (Cary, North Carolina) and the United Kingdom (Telford, Shorpshire).

While our control systems are the core of our operations, the group also includes the companies Zivan Srl (High frequency battery chargers), Zapi srl (service on Zapi products and retrofit business).

ZAPI Spa designs, produces and sells electronic control systems for battery powered vehicles. The company was founded in the mid 1970’s in Poviglio, a small town located in the country near Reggio Emilia , in Northern Italy. Today we have grown to become a true global company with operations around the world.
