We are specialists in the production of “green” articles, traditional items realized inserting natural fibers and bristles inside wood frames, dedicated to a particularly careful and demanding clientele.
We realize personalized products, based on the customer’s design, and we can fire stamp or pad print the customer’s logos. Furthermore, we fill with bristles both industrial and non-industrial frames.
Back in 1919, the soldier Alessandro Gottardo, after coming back from the World War I fields, decided to quit the precarious farm work and to start the brush production in the old depot of his dad’s house, by himself and with just few tools.
Thanks to his tenacity, patience and willpower, he gradually enlarged his enterprise, so that several times he had to move the production assets to facilities which could better satisfy the necessities of a production that was growing in terms of both volume and mix.
The participation to the sector fairs in Padua not only granted him an official recognition, but also acknowledged the presence of a company that, first in Italy, offered a complete catalogue of items dedicated to the house and industry cleanliness.
