The new and modern trimming line allows us to process 25 m3 of material per day, increasing the variety of products we can offer. An ever-greater control of the material is combined with board-by-board selection and unprecedented production flexibility.
ISVE – an Italian brand amongst the world leaders in the creation of vacuum dryers for companies in the wood sector – and Andrighetti Legnami have combined their knowledge to obtain the utmost continuous vacuum drying system, optimised in terms of yield and productivity.
With a drying capacity of 700 m3 and thanks to the extensive stock of material subject to seasoning, we are able to better handle any request for dried material.
The history of Andrighetti Legnami begins. This was thanks to the vision of Olindo, a young Venetian entrepreneur with a passion for a noble material like wood and the dream of bringing African essences to Italy.
The first on-site production site in Côte d'Ivoire (the Ivory Coast) was inaugurated. In the following years, the leadership of Andrighetti Legnami in the global market of African hardwoods was affirmed, also sustained by the modern production plant in Padua.
With daughters Ada and Nicoletta joining the management team, the company opened the frontiers to new foreign markets by expanding the range of treated products and solidifying its name in the international market.
From the desire to complete the business with European hardwood, the organisational structure of VITEX Doo was founded, as Andrighetti Legnami’s first permanent establishment in Croatia.
With the acquisitions of ITS, NEFBA and BTA, Andrighetti Legnami become the first production company in the Ivory Coast wood sector and one of the Top Ten in Africa, having a volume of processed logs exceeding 350,000 m3 per year.
Another historical date for Andrighetti Legnami, with the implementation of the new strategic business plan. With the progressive re-focus from the exotic African to the European hardwood, the supply and processing activities in the Ivory Coast were sold to a big-name Lebanese group.
> From 2020
With the company now being led by Nicoletta Andrighetti and Arrigo Barion, Andrighetti Legnami is set to become a solid wood boutique, dedicated in particular to European hardwood. The company is increasingly consumer-oriented, ever more international, no longer a simple importer but a reality able to give the customer exactly what they are after - a quality product in the desired sizes, at the right price and perfectly dried, even by vacuum.
