It is no coincidence that Giacomini is acknowledged as much for its flair in design as its growth as a world leader, especially in the brass product sector with ranges of Lever ball, Gate and Radiator Valves being prime examples. From just one small unit, founded in 1951 by Alberto Giacomini on the Western side of Lake Orta, the company has expanded to multiple factories producing a wide range of products in metal and plastic.
Brass production is shared between two Giacomini factories, at Castelnuovo del Garda for hot forging and in San Maurizio díOpaglio, the headquarters for all manufacturing, assembling, testing, packing, stocking and shipping. Another production unit has recently been opened for the manufacture of pipes and fittings in plastic materials.
Now supplying 95 countries worldwide, recognition stems from high quality production tailored to a variety of markets, compliance with appropriate Standards and Approvals by important International Institutes. With 75% of production exported, Giacomini's dynamic attitude and product reliability is well demonstrated.
Also clear is its concern for efficient production and outstanding design, using the most up-to-date computerised technology and systems in the hands of highly qualified personnel. This enables solutions for all constructive problems at the initial stage of research and development; with support from sophisticated laboratory equipment for hydraulic, mechanical, thermal and chemical testing, plus specific product checks and continuous supervision during production.
Closely aligned to testing, which is automatically carried out on 100% of the pieces, repetitive mechanical, hydraulic and thermal checks provide a constant measure that ensures consistency of quality and performance over the long term.
