The origins

Luigi Rampoldi
Founder

Cattaneo Impianti started out with the name Cattaneo Virginia
The company was founded in 1950, originally with the name of Cattaneo Virginia (wife of Luigi Rampoldi). Previously Mr. Rampoldi developed an entrepreneurial activity through a company of electrical systems founded together with his brothers. This background of acquired skills and professionalism was transferred to the Cattaneo Virginia company, which over the years embarked on a path of growth, building what is now known as Cattaneo Impianti Srl.

The beginnings
The company, located in Lomazzo (CO), comprised a small warehouse and a workshop dedicated to the civil electrical installation activity. Externally the company presented itself with a small commercial space for the sale of electrical equipment and appliances.

Cattaneo Virginia expands
After a few years of growing activity, the company moved to Via Pace (Lomazzo) in a building owned by the company. Mrs. Virginia, who took care of the commercial aspects, hired staff for the store and Mr. Luigi, who managed and coordinated the plant and technical activities, began to employ electricians and integrate them into the company to expand their operational capabilities.

Customers
In the 60s and 70s, the town of Lomazzo had only about 6,000 inhabitants, but had a considerable industrial development. In the area, activities ranged from the manufacturing industry to the food industry, shoe factories, and small artisan companies. The Cattaneo Virginia company offered its services in this context for the construction and maintenance of civil electrical systems, electrical systems for apartments, villas and condos, but very soon the technical skills of Mr. Luigi Rampoldi allowed him to gain Customers in the thriving industrial sector.

The evolution of the corporate structure
In the 1970s, Cattaneo Virginia expanded its headquarters in Via Pace, hiring two more electrical engineers, a designer and numerous electricians. In those years Mr. Agostino Rampoldi, son of the founder, began to participate professionally in the company, with managerial roles for commercial and procurement activities, initially, and with activities on construction sites in the following years.

Expansion
The acquisition of new clients, such as that of an Italian company that produced artificial textile fibres with plants in Vercelli, Ivrea and Chatillon in Val D'Aosta, Acerra (NA) and Ottana in Sardinia, St. Nabord (France); and furthermore that of a Swiss company specializing in the assembly of transport systems in both industries and airports, allowed Cattaneo Virginia to expand its business horizons.

Cattaneo Impianti S.r.l.

[ 1983 ] - From sole proprietorship to company
In 1983 Cattaneo Virginia was transformed from a sole proprietorship into a limited liability company, changing its name to Cattaneo Impianti S.r.l.
The company was expanding swiftly, especially the plant activities, and new recruitments were necessary to satisfy the requests coming from all over Italy. From the early 1990s, it was decided to focus business activities solely and exclusively on industrial plant engineering.

Growth
Cattaneo Impianti S.r.l. placed great importance on acquired know-how from the beginning, but maintained the same open-mindedness towards the evolution of technologies, thus extending its competences in plant engineering and integrating them with new capabilities, in particular for the automation sector.

Company's values and principles
Since its inception with Cattaneo Virginia, the company acted and was based on principles of quality, efficiency, professionalism and passion. Values that still characterize the work of Cattaneo Impianti S.r.l. and that represents its foundations.

Core Values

QUALITY
Accuracy, best technical solution, precision and installation technique, high-quality materials, low number of processes, clean working environments, the possibility of expanding the plants.

PASSION

Clients

Long-lasting relationships
The values dear to Cattaneo Impianti foster as a natural consequence a consolidated and lasting relationship with Customers. The Project Manager is an essential professional figure that was introduced many years ago as a reference for the Customer and as a guarantee of effectiveness and respect for quality and timeliness.

Organization
Since the company's beginnings the internal organizational approach was based on the needs of the Customer, even for projects of medium and high complexity or with the extensive territorial distribution. The subdivision of the technical office into thematic areas (electrical, mechanical, automation, specialist sectors) and the assignment of a specific Project Manager, represent a unique reference for the Customer.

Uniqueness

Multinational vision
Cattaneo Impianti has historically consolidated its experience and professionalism which allow it to interface with multinational companies, guaranteeing all the fundamental aspects of projects that require organization, safety, quality and respect of costs and timeliness.

Multidisciplinarity and specialization
Cattaneo Impianti has always taken care of two fundamental aspects in structuring its offer. First, the ability to present itself in application sectors with a wide implementation spectrum and, second, enhancing the specialist needs to be required specifically for particular application areas.

Single interlocutor
The multidisciplinary approach allows Cattaneo Impianti to offer its services as a single supplier in projects of medium and high complexity, which require competencies that are clearly multidisciplinary and, on the other, highly specialized. The advantage for the customer is to have a single interlocutor capable of providing answers for every design and implementation aspect.

Competitiveness
The capabilities of Cattaneo Impianti have evolved over time to reach a deep and extensive vision of the market. Above all, this capability enables significant cost containment, through internal procedures that are constantly being reviewed and optimized to speed up the flow of management and efficiency in every project.

Industry 4.0
The company's evolution is constant and the next steps will be oriented towards a digitalization process, implementing the principles of the "Internet of things", the projection towards Industry 4.0.

The future

Sectoral approach
In some sectors, Cattaneo Impianti has developed highly specialized skills and know-how over time. In recent years, these sectors have become de facto the evolutionary orientation of the company's activities, in particular for the Pharmaceutical, Chemical and Food industries.

Consolidation and evolution
The strength of Cattaneo Impianti is in its decades of experience in the plant engineering sector. Since 1950, the company has consolidated a status quo that translates decades of experience into financial solidity, site safety, growth of multidisciplinary technical expertise within the company, ability to serve sectors that require dedicated procedures, a historical and consolidated customer portfolio, but also a conscious orientation towards social responsibility.
