Italian ceramic tile producer Marazzi has continued investing after it became part of the US Group Mohawk Industries in 2013.
Marazzi is a worldwide leading brand for the production of stylish ceramic tiles for the floors and walls of residential buildings as well as for public spaces and architectural projects.
In September 2015 the company inaugurated its new production plant in Fiorano Modenese. The new plant is Marazzi’s most important investment since joining the Mohawk Industries.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by the Italian Minister for Constitutional Reforms, Maria Elena Boschi.
The total investment for the construction of the new plant amounted to €30m and it will lead to an increase in personnel of 30 per cent.
The new plant, built next to the existing plant, will allow Marazzi to double its production capacity, from 4 to about 9 million square metres of porcelain stoneware per year.
Part of the investment will also go towards increasing the number of presses and ovens and also to introduce new technology for digital tile decoration, colouring, quality control, handling and packaging systems.
The total plant area is 37,500 square metres, of which more than 9,000 square metres are covered.
Marazzi will present the historic “Marazzi showroom” of Sassuolo, completely renovated, during the next international trade fair of ceramic tiles “Cersaie”.
