Campedelli Marmi - a successful company

Campedelli Marmi

Campedelli's Family

Good morning,
the story of Campedelli Marmi starts in the distant past. It is a company that has been able to innovate and grow, in a market that is increasingly competitive and intent on renewal, that of stone masonry.

Campedelli found its innovation in a slab resin-treating plant, which increased the production of the company from Verona by 40%.

The company's story has its roots in the Valpantena valley. 
Its founder, Albino Campedelli, tells of the family from which the company takes its name, that skilfully handed the business down from generation to generation. A business that is now one of the best examples of made in Italy in the field of stone masonry. 

The year was 1967.
We started with the birth and development of the first marble masonry in Valpantena in the 60's. Thanks to his intuition and dedication, it was precisely at that time that Albino Campedelli founded the company of the same name. 

Continued commercial and production development saw the sons gradually enter the artisan business until it turned into Campedelli Marmi Srl”.

From 1967 to 2016, time seems to have flown past. Yet the world has changed in the meantime; the company has grown and evolved, and the complexity has tripled.  

Overall, 2016 has been a positive year in many ways”, explains Albino Campedelli optimistically. “Firstly, investments in the latest generation of machinery have made the company, which was already competitive in the market, even more innovative, technological and able to offer more finished product in less time.
Despite the time spent installing this machinery and making it perfect, in a few months we managed to recoup most of the production lost in that period. 

Secondly, sales have shown a positive trend, which has brought an increase in turnover”. 

In the 10,000 square metres of production area, there are highly qualified personnel selecting and working the highest quality marble for medium and large-sized projects and surfaces. 

Specifically, what materials do you work? 

Our catalogue contains various Italian stone materials that are particularly difficult to work, such as Botticino, Classic Travertine, Walnut Travertine, Breccia Oniciata, Daino, White Carrara, Red Verrona, Yellow Istria and Arabescato Orobico. On one hand, investments in machinery and technology have allowed us to reduce production and labour costs, and on the other to reach a high level of quality and quantity.

Years ago, we made tailored production for projects such as airports and private villas. Today, however, we receive many requests for semi-finished products."

From Stallavena, at the foot of the Lessini mountains in the province of Verona, to the Arabian desert. There is a close link between these places, which are so distant and yet so close.

The most important markets were, and still are, located in the Arab countries. In fact, our products are destined to the markets in the Persian Gulf, United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Iraq and even Libya and Morocco. In these countries we are known as a reliable partner both for our delivery times and for the characteristics and qualities of our product, and we have cemented relationships with customers that have accompanied us over the past 30 years of our company's history” continues Campedelli.

How was it possible to innovate?
By investing.
For the company from Verona, improving production, quality control and enhancing the commercialization of its products was always considered a professional duty. 

Recently, the company dedicated a whole production area to a new Breton resin-treating plant.

Our Breton plant consists of: a loading Jot, two drying ovens with 30 levels each, automatic mesh application, two catalyst ovens with 30 levels each, an intermediate Jot, a Levibreton KFT 3600 polishing machine with 17 spindles and an unloading jot. The use of such machinery was immediately clear and intuitive. We have seen improvements in terms of quality and quantity and a production increase of 40 percent. ”.

A satisfaction for the Campedelli family, which can also be measured by the post-sales service guaranteed by Breton.

During the first months of regular production, several times we had to rely on Breton assistance to solve some hitches in testing. The online assistance personnel, like the technicians/installers, have shown themselves to be punctual, professional and determined to solve our problems in every situation”.

In fact, Breton guarantees a hotline service that is active 24 hours a day, thanks to the company sites in the United States, China, India, Australia and Brazil.

A telephone service provided by highly specialized technicians, who are also able to carry out technical work directly on the machine installed at the customer plant, without the need for the operator’s presence.

A rosy present and a future that will become even rosier.

Well, that’s all for today, thanks for your attention.
