In January 2015, significant investments were made, with the extension of a production facility, new lines for handling large sizes, automatic sorting lines and latest-generation packing lines.
With more than 100 collections available in a wide range of designs and sizes, CERAMICA RONDINE also boasts a wide range of porcelain stoneware skirting tiles. In 2016 extensive investments were planned and implemented in early 2017. These investments increased and optimised the production processes, thus also leading to the production of large sizes, from 80x80 to 120x120, and allowed the company to increase its competitive performance on international markets.
In October 2018 Italcer Group, parent company of the ceramic group of the same name controlled by the italian private equity fund Mandarin Capital Partners II and Graziano Verdi, completed the 100% takeover of Ceramica Rondine. This acquisition follows those of La Fabbrica Spa, Elios Ceramica Spa and Devon&Devon Spa, which were completed in 2017. With Rondine, the Italcer Group, with aggregate turnover of 200 million EUR, among first places in the league table of Italian ceramics manufacturers. The entry of Rondine in the Italcer Group will allow the company to equip itself with new instruments and synergies that allow it to develop an increasingly leading role in domestic and international markets.
2020 brings the new acquisition of Cedir - Ceramiche di Romagna, an historical company located in Ravenna, in order to expand the group hub in the Romagna area.
Moreover, we have also presented the innovative ADVANCE technology, an eco-friendly ceramic in porcelain stoneware, in first and single fire, at over 1230 degrees of cooking and with 40% of recycled raw materials for both residential and non-residential solutions.
Thanks to its antiviral, antibacterial and photocatalytic properties, Advance is able to protect the surrounding environments, making them healthier and reducing significantly the pollution.
