FORNACI DI MASSERANO: A CONSTANTLY DEVELOPING COMPANY. THE NEW GENERATION OF HIGH THERMAL PERFORMANCE CLAY PRODUCTS.
Fornaci di Masserano, one of the oldest brick and roof tile manufacturers in Italy, is based in the Piedmont region, on the main road between Biella and Gattinara. This historic company’s success stems from a number of key factors, including a team of technicians determined to achieve ambitious goals and led by managing director Marco Tarello, products manufactured in accordance with nature and tradition, and development projects aiming to meet U-value requirements and the specific needs of customers.
Fornaci di Masserano has launched an important initiative demonstrating the human values of the company and its staff. In cooperation with its longstanding partner and extruder die supplier Tecnofiliere srl of Novi di Modena, it has produced a die in the colours of the Italian flag and published the photo on its website. The purpose of this initiative is to demonstrate its solidarity with the people who have been affected by the earthquake in the Emilia region and to encourage those who still believe in the Italian spirit of unity to offer their tangible support at this difficult time to help the affected areas get back on their feet as soon as possible.
