With Pontenossa S.p.A., the Group is at the forefront of circular economy, processing most of the steel mill dust produced in Italy, recovering the zinc oxide to the production cycle and minimizing the inert material destined for landfill.

Since 2009, having acquired control of Ceta, has been producing scaffolding for construction and grandstands, stages and seats for sports and entertainment.With the development of the green economy, Ceta enters the world of energy upgrading of buildings.
