Company visits

Pittini Group is a steel manufacturer leader in the production of long products for construction and mechanical engineering. With an annual production of around 3 million tons, 18 production facilities and a logistics service and 1,800 employees, Pittini is a solid industrial reality oriented towards constant growth, driven by high-tech investments, product innovation and a careful environmental sustainability policy. Acciaierie di Verona, which has been part of the Pittini Group since 2015, has a long steel-making tradition. In 2016 the business plan for Acciaierie di Verona was launched, aimed at enhancing one of the historical sites in the Italian steelwork panorama, while creating one of the most innovative wire rod rolling plants in the world. The “Masterplan” business plan entails the extensive technological upgrade of manufacturing facilities to improve product quality. The project will also entail the upgrading of infrastructures and facilities to improve working environments to the benefit of all company workers. This plan is implemented by preserving continuity of operations and by keeping the employment levels of the manufacturing site unchanged and it is an example of innovation by the Pittini Group.


Mondini Cavi has an industrious and peaceful history, just like the town of Caprino Veronese, the pleasant foothill location which has been hosting us since the early 1970s.
In the mid 1970s we moved from those initial premises in the centre of Caprino to more suitable offices and buildings in the new industrial area, with a view to future growth.
We created one of the first entirely automated systems for copper wiredrawing in the original 5,500 m² covered area. About ten years later, the new 3,000 m² wing was built to extend the finished product warehouse, the packaging division and the testing and approval laboratory.
Lastly, with the construction of a further building, we were able to add vulcanization lines to produce rubber insulated cables.


Serego Alighieri Estate
On October 22, after the plant tours at Pittini’s and Mondini Cavi’s facilities, the two groups will gather in the Serego Alighieri Estate for a tasting of Valpolicella and Amarone wines from the worldwide famous Masi winery, and a buffet featuring local specialties. The Serego Alighieri Estate has an historical, cultural and wine tradition of over 650 years, the longest in the Valpolicella region.
