Incorporated in 1983, Gi Di Meccanica initially operated in the sports sector, becoming one of the primary operators in the manufacture of ski boot buckles. A leader in the production of high precision metal parts, the company took advantage of its many years of experience to expand the business towards the strategic automotive, hydraulic, plumbing, heating and sanitary fittings and furniture markets.
Today, the company boasts a worldwide presence through its well-structured and organised distribution network. The headquarters are in Vazzola, in the North East of Italy near Treviso, with two production plants for a total floor space of 16,500 m2.
In 2000 the group brought in the Gi Di Manufacturing affiliate based in Romania, while 2001 saw the addition of Ferrox srl from Cimavilla (TV), which operates in rehabilitation products. In 2021 we installed a vertical warehouse 23.3 m in height and with storage capacity of 9800 tons, in the drive to concentrate the group’s raw materials, work in progress, and finished products in a single place. This has been a major capacity expansion that allows us to optimise space and ensure accurate FIFO management of our stock.
Thanks to continuous investment, the group has grown rapidly, achieving total sales of almost 62 million euro with a 300-strong workforce.
The central focus of the business was initially based on bar stock turning technology, but through time we introduced cold forming technology into our production process. This latter technology became strategic, and the manufacturing axis shifted to the production of cold formed automotive components, with the process being completed with a turning stage. This new synergy between different processes allowed us to extend our potential market, offering dedicated solutions for other sectors.
Gi Di Manufacturing, our Romanian affiliate, is focused on assembly operations of complex mechanisms. The plant also carries out coating and pad printing operations on highly automated production lines. The products supplied are in the area of winter sports equipment but, thanks to our production flexibility, we can also supply components for a wide range of other sectors.
Our goal is to offer our clients dedicated solutions for their requirements consistently and to supply special and complex cold formed components by combining the various technologies available in our organisation. This approach allows us to meet the growing demands from the market and also increase our competitive advantage. The patents developed every year in the various sectors bear witness to the group’s dynamism and the attention we devote to research.
