The Made in Italy History

FIFTY YEARS DEVOTED TO CERAMICS

Carlo Salvarani’s entrepreneurial adventure began in 1968, when he founded the Gresmalt Group in Casalgrande. The passion that drove him then is the same that guides his children Alessandra and Filippo today, aiming towards constant growth with a focus on all-Italian products.

We have been working with clay, water and fire for fifty years. Simple elements to which we add another: passion.

Today Gresmalt is one of the leading players in the ceramic sector in Italy in terms of product square meter, with 5 sites, over 130 million in turnover, driving an ever-popular trend, using cutting-edge technology and with its all-Italian heart.
