Verticalization of the processes, total design, research and technology are the basis of a top-level entrepreneurial activity. This is the heart of Fantoni group, leader in the production of Mdf and chipboard panels, office furniture and sound-absorption panels.
A turnover of 340 million euros, an international market and 1,000 employees in the group are the result of more than one hundred years’ experience in wood processing. Lesonit, La-con, Patt and Inter-Rail support Fantoni itself in the constitution of an independent production system that starts from wood as raw material to the finished product. Melamine papers, laminates, glues and resins, wood fibre (MDF), sound-absorption panels and an independent production of electricity implement a system that is oriented towards the improvement of its own performances.
A strong company philosophy features the actions of the group in all the phases, from the designing of the products to their marketing, from the communication between the companies of the group and with the outside.
Nature, environment and sustainable development, architecture, creation of new materials and individual creativity, industrial culture and culture of the project are the distinctive features of an activity which is constantly supported by a strong company identity.
For this reason planning the identity of wood as a material represents an important added value for the company, both in the production of intermediate products (such as MDF) and in the finished products.
The sum of all these elements makes Fantoni to direct every phase of the company life toward the realization of a project led by the idea of an identity which is characterized by the counter-balanced presence of different elements, such as design, quality, interest in research, customization of products, environment-friendly production, respect for nature, enhancement of human resources and individual creativity, constant contact with the outside world.
This peculiar vision of the company’s philosophy fits perfectly with the activity carried out by Fantoni Research Centre.
Thanks to the involvement of operators with different experiences (architects, engineers, designers, entrepreneurs, professors, technicians, students, employees) it deals with economic subjects (raw materials, planning, innovation design, markets etc.), ethic, environment and sociological subjects, subjects related to wood as a material and to furniture as a product, through an exploration and learning route.
