Feralpi in Italy

Steel for the construction industry.

Feralpi is one of the most important steel suppliers to the Italian construction industry. Our four subsidiary companies - Feralpi Siderurgica S.p.A, Acciaierie di Calvisano, Dieffe and Nuova DE.FI.M - operate several steelworks throughout Italy. Their geographical distribution and modern production facilities enable us to react optimally to the constantly changing market conditions. The broad spectrum of our steel products exemplifies this flexibility.

 

New perspectives and locations.

The last decade of the 20th century was a time of new possibilities and opportunities. Major investments in existing and new steel locations were particularly promising ventures. Refurbishment and further development of the individual sites secured an expanded share of the overall Italian steel market. The longstanding experience of the existing facilities was preserved, and we were at the same time able to benefit from a larger pool of know-how in steel production and processing.
