MOMO was founded in 1964 by race car driver Gianpiero Moretti. In that year, Moretti commissioned a local craftsman to produce a custom steering wheel for his own racing car. This special steering wheel – the first MOMO steering wheel in the Company’s history – had a superior and thicker grip compared to the normal racing steering wheels available at the time. Drivers from other teams quickly noticed Moretti’s new steering wheel and wanted the same for their cars, and so it started to gain fame within the racing community. The new MOMO steering wheel also caught the attention of the then Ferrari Formula One driver, John Surtees, who wanted to mount it on his single-seater car. John Surtees’ Ferrari, equipped with the MOMO racing steering wheel, won the Formula One world title in 1964. And so it was that Gianpiero Moretti converted his passion into a manufacturing reality, and MOMO (for Moretti Monza) was born.
At the beginning, MOMO's production was limited to the racing world, but in the 1970s, the Company started broadening its horizons by developing new product lines. MOMO thus started the production of light alloy wheels and steering wheels for road cars, both for the aftermarket sector and supplying original equipment auto manufactures, starting with Ferrari. At the end of the 1980s, MOMO signed a cooperation’s agreement with Rolls-Royce to be their original equipment supplier and later on, many other car manufacturers followed suit: Aston Martin, Citröen, Daihatsu, Fiat, Honda, Isuzu, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Opel, Porsche, Peugeot, Renault, Saab, Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.
Since 2005 MOMO has been head-quartered in Milan, Italy with a subsidiary in the US, MOMO USA. MOMO products are sold for the aftermarket and motor racing in over sixty countries, mainly through distributors and dealers all over the world, under the brands "MOMO" and "MOMO Corse".
MOMO is still predominantly focused on light alloy road wheels, but the Company has brilliantly carried on the business of developing innovative racing products, incorporating ambitious technological goals and continuing to improve the quality, the safety and the superior design of MOMO products.
The MOMO brand continues to be inspired by simple yet very strong values: product quality, superior craftsmanship, maximum safety standards and the highest performance levels. Design, advanced technology, quality and an exclusive image: these elements have always been the secrets of this successful Italian company, famous all over the world, MOMO.
