Pianigiani LLC was born in Siena in the 30s and got specialised straight away in the fields of scrap iron and metal collection and recovery, dealing later with other types of materials such as scrap paper, wood, plastics, packaging material and tailings. Since four generations, our group has been implementing a path of constant growth and an infrastructural, technical, and organisational development, seeking an ever-greater specialisation and a progressive expansion of the offered services, finding a positive feedback among industrial and artisan companies. Nowadays, the plant stretches on an area of 40000 sq. m., of which 8000 occupied by covered warehousing. The trademark of Pianigiani Rottami LLC on a sky-blue background, with the sentence “the culture of salvaging” against a grass-green background, has been used for many years to symbolise the history and the values of a family who has always been tied to the salvaging of new raw materials from waste.
The story starts with Mr Giuseppe Pianigiani, aka “the little Millionaire”, who was born in Monteroni D’Arbia (SI), especially active at the times of World War I, and it was carried on by his son Piero, active during and after World War II, who used to collect rabbit skins for felts, lamb skins, bones, paper, and scrap iron and metal for small farms. Giuseppe Pianigiani, Piero’s son, and his wife Maria Teresa Cerboni made the name of the company grow, also thanks to the economic boom of the 60s and 70s. Their son Antonello, the current majority shareholder of the company, deserves credit for the industrial turning point and for the exponential growth of the business, in terms of both quantity and processing, besides investing in modern hi-tech machinery and leading towards the national dimension. And the story goes on: the company is entering, full-fledged, into the 5th generation, represented by the sons Elena and Francesco Pianigiani.
