The value of our history
The company Giovanardi was established in Milan in 1919 as a handicraft manufacturer of stamps, plates and inks, later specializing in the production of enameled iron plates.
In the 30s and 40s, with the diffusion of the radio, Giovanardi started the production of radio dials on celluloid and crystal supports. Phonola, Irradio, C.G.E., Allocchio Bacchini and Siemens were customers.
In the 50s, the production of plates and dials was expanded with an improvement of all processes, such as shearing, galvanic coating, painting, silkscreening, lithography… allowing Giovanardi to supply several historical Italian companies such as Fiat, Breda, Olivetti, Veglia Borletti, Magneti Marelli for about three decades.
In the 60s, following the distribution of electrical appliances, Giovanardi had the opportunity to work with new customers like Zanussi, Indesit and Candy and, in the scales sector, Santo Stefano, Toledo and Berkel.
In the 70s, the spread of color television allowed Giovanardi to supply Telefunken, Philco, Mivar, Brionvega and Philips, producing aluminum control panels.
In the ’80s, with the arrival of electronics and the consequent dismissal of TV control panels and scale dials, Giovanardi expanded the production range and started the manufacturing of displays, windows, promotional gifts for Alfa Romeo, Barilla, Buitoni, Cacharel, Fiorucci, Hanorah, Lancetti, 3M, Ungaro.
Since the ’90s, the market of P.O.P. products, namely communication material in stores, has been evolving constantly and products such as displays, totem, corners, shop-in-shops, packaging, have become increasingly sophisticated, leading Giovanardi to work with Armani, BMW, BTicino, Bulgari, Coty, Davidoff, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Luxottica, P&G, Prada, Pirelli, Safilo, Sharp, Samsung.
Since 1999, Giovanardi has ensured its presence in France thanks a local team based in Paris.
In the year 2000, Giovanardi has created the Giovanardi Alliance, an agreement with three local companies specialized in manufacturing activities involving metal, plastic and wood, sharing synergies, common policies and a single mission.
Currently, Giovanardi is a joint stock company, with premises measuring 7.000 square meters, structured in Development Area, Technology Area and Product Area, in Concorezzo (Milan), with 70 professionals and a capital share of 1.000.000,00 Euro.
