Innovation and investment

We look to the future, empowered by our roots.

During the most difficult years for the global ceramic industry, we put all our efforts into achieving results that seemed like dreams. This page summarises the most recent stages of a journey that has led to Florim’s current passion, courage and desire to innovate.

Our Florim factories comply with the highest standards and our goal is to constantly improve processes with a constant focus on environmental impact. Our investments are also moving in this direction, introducing important innovations in terms of both production and logistics. Two of our huge factories are particularly notable. They are practically the same from an aesthetic standpoint; they boast the same high technology and the same Industry 4.0 approach.


Industry 4.0 factory - Mordano (Bologna)

70 million euros and just 6 months of construction time resulted in a 56,000 sq m production plant that adjoins the existing factory. A new technologically advanced hub, high automation and data and plant interconnections mark a new milestone for the global ceramic industry.
