Nowadays, the company headquarters and facilities are located in Solarolo Rainerio (Cremona), in Northern Italy – UE, over an area of more than 246.000 square meters of which more than 39.000 are indoor with 190 employees.
INVERNIZZI SPA is a market leader in the plywood sector, well-known all-over Europe and overseas for the high quality and technical performances of its products, which can also be PEFC, CARB phase 2, E1, NAF, CE 2+ and FSC® certified.These certifications and the best industrial practices, testified by the continuous investments in state of the art technology (new dryer to be fully operational shortly) witness the company’s engagement towards the creation of a strong and efficient industrial model, which is sustainable and future-oriented.
Further to that, INVERNIZZI SPA is in a process of substantial growth and aims at getting further international acknowledgment.
This “green path” towards efficiency and sustainability has always been at the heart of the company’s industrial philosophy. It all started back in 2006 when INVERNIZZI SPA was among the first companies in Italy to set up a cogeneration plant in its premises by producing electrical energy through burning methane gas. This allowed the company to be self-sufficient in terms of energy. This project, through the exploitation of a renewable energy source, represents and confirms the company’s commitment for the protection of the global environment.
One of the most important step in this path is represented by the installation of photovoltaic panels on the shed of the new dryer, that came into operation in July 2022. The system contains 1090 panels which, together, will cut CO² emissions by as much as 250 kg.
The company has never abandoned its original raw material, the Italian poplar from local crops, helping to develop both the agricultural and industrial potential, promoting the local economy and the preservation of the surrounding landscape.
Moreover, INVERNIZZI SPA is constantly working to produce low-emitting plywood panels by developing new bonding techniques, bio-based and made with natural ingredients. This represents a further step towards a responsible and sustainable production, which is closer to mankind and the environment.
The results of the LCA assessment are to be found in the Environmental Product Declaration EPD, which is the document describing the environmental impacts linked to the production of one cubic meter of poplar plywood and particleboard. This quantifies, for instance, the energy and raw material consumption, waste production, emissions in the atmosphere and the disposals in water courses.
