"We didn't stop and we also carried out this project, which we had been working on for some time," said Stefano Mauri, owner of the Giardina Group. “We believe that it is in complex times like the one we are experiencing that companies must demonstrate that they have a project, a perspective, the strength to look ahead without waiting for interventions from governments and institutions. Never more than today is it fundamental to believe in your own strengths and ideas".

De Stefani will continue to operate at its headquarters in Giussano with the existing management and sons of the founder Valerio.

The acquisition of De Stefani continues the "Giardina Group 2030" project. This industrial plan defines the group's strategies and range of solutions to build machines and plants in the various business sectors in which the group operates, including wood, glass, plastic, automotive, composites and aerospace.
