In 1963, Gino Bucciarelli established a company whose main activity was mill packs trade.. Times were hard but offered the prospects for development and allowed the company to assert itself in the local market.
In 1980 expansion continued and with the help of his children, Sauro and Patrizia, it became a family business. Francesca, the founder’s wife, also contributed.
In 1985 the company moved to a new plant in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa in the province of Florence, where the operations were converted from trading to industrial. It was a delicate and intensive transition but necessary. Times were changing, and the company had to follow the market which was demanding products in bands and sheets cut to size. They equipped the company with roll cutting lines, becoming a complete “steel service centre”. The years that followed saw a rapid growth and the need for larger premises.
In 2000 the company relocated to its present premises of Castellina Scalo in the province of Siena. This new 70.000 sqm site was designed to create a very modern service centre, with state-of-the-art technology plants, an optimized layout and its own railway yard to minimize transport costs.
Since 2005, four members of the third generation of Bucciarelli family have joined the company, bringing the same degree of devotion, to continuing the family tradition in the steel sector.
