HSL is Agile
Manufacturing

It is the mantra that drives HSL: a company that has always been a leader in Europe, and that is able to combine speed, technical perfection and beauty.
What is speed?

Speed is the ability to transform the customer’s will into reality in the extremely short time required by international markets. Technical perfection is the constant goal of HSL, a goal made possible by 30 years of activity in the European automotive sector, by the extraordinary skills of its engineers and technicians, by the vision of its founder Ignazio Pomini.

What is beauty?

Beauty is the obsession of making a masterpiece of every high-performance component, every lighting solution, every product. Beauty is the expression of hundreds of years of Italian creativity, and it is in HSL’s DNA. There is a common thread between the genius of the Renaissance, Filippo Brunelleschi, and the autonomous car: HSL has found it.

Hic Sunt Leones

In ancient maps, the African deserts were marked with the “HSL” inscription. It was an acronym in Latin that meant Hic Sunt Leones: Here there are lions. It indicated a difficult and unknown territory, where only the most capable explorers dared to go.

HSL is not afraid of challenges, nor of facing the unknown.
