Pasquale Forte is President and Founder of Eldor Corporation SpA, a multinational he founded in 1972 and today a leader in the automotive sector, with more than 3000 employees, headquarters in Orsenigo, in the province of Como and 20 offices worldwide (in Italy, Germany , United States, China, Turkey, Brazil, Japan and South Korea).
Eldor began as a workshop for producing radios to be integrated into bed headboards, and transformed itself over the years, thanks to Forte’s forward thinking. He made it more entrepreneurial, commercial and technical, until it could hold its own in the very competitive automotive market, having previously also made cathode TVs.
But Pasquale Forte was at the same time a passionate farmer, winemaker, inventor and vine-grower and that is now his full-time occupation. He is the brains behind Podere Forte, the one who chose to apply Rudolf Steiner’s philosophy to the estate and has made it outstanding so that the work of people and of nature are reconciled there.
