A global mind, handicraft tradition
Making the most of over sixty years of experience in producing superior industrial handicraft furniture with a brand that aims at achieving the highest Made in Italy standard of production in the furniture sector. These are the first steps taken to launch Presotto Industrie mobili Spa again, a company located in Brugnera (PN) that has been appreciated in Italy and throughout the world since 1948, leader in the Furniture District of Livenza and about to face an exacting experience of growth to acquire new market shares.
A solid presence in Germany, in the United Kingdom and in France and even in very dynamic markets such as the USA and Russia, Presotto Industrie mobile Spa is planning important investments to consolidate its brand.
“Our customers – declares Luciano Biscontin, the president of the company – who are equally distributed between Italy and abroad, have always expressed great appreciation for the quality of our products. We are firmly convinced that beauty and the Made in Italy style are inalienable resources to confirm and expand the results obtained in the past. We are preparing a well-constructed marketing strategy that will consolidate the attention of the public and of operators on the value of our brand”.
Luciano Biscontin, the driving force behind Presotto, has transmitted his love for furniture to his children who now work in the company with great passion and dedication, together with highly qualified top managers. Together they contribute to the success of this family concern, each in their own area of competence.
Quality, research, innovation
Presotto is synonymous of solidity and reliability and of the ability to perfectly blend work culture and technology to daily achieve innovative and quality solutions. Presotto’s authentic and functional design is born and develops within the Research and Development Centre, one of the most modern and sophisticated in Italy where all the products are engineered. This is a special, purpose-built area made up of large spaces in which Presotto's "concepts for life" take shape. These spaces are veritable workshops where the number 0 models are made and tested.
Presotto is also one of the first companies in the sector to have adopted the lean production principles aimed at minimizing waste to the extent of cancelling it. This process has contributed to generating a competitive advantage that is indispensable for the company, especially in the light of the fact that Presotto offers only customised, custom-made furniture to the market. It ensues that the company certainly cannot benefit from the cost advantages resulting from standard formats. Another of the company's strengths is its just in time production which, based on planning times and production processes as well as the purchase and management of raw materials and components, has allowed Presotto to market its products all over the world.
Additional strengths of Presotto are the very high quality of its handicraft work, its capacity of adopting cutting-edge design choices that are able to satisfy an attentive and refined public, the integration of technologies in the home and its research into innovative materials. Ongoing growth and research complete the company’s winning strategy: “We were the first to use unusual materials such as ecomalta®, stone and Corten, points out the president, Mr. Biscontin – and this is because we have made substantial investments in research and development. We will expand on these solutions while remaining open to collaborations with designers and architects capable of aiding us along the path of top quality, very innovative products".
Beauty made in Italy.
Design, quality and service are all aspects the company has always focused on with two different brands: Presotto is dedicated to the residential area; Presotto Contract is specialised in turnkey supplies of furniture for the hotel sector and for the community and private residential ones. We offer a wide selection of modern and custom-sized items, designed for customers who want day and night furniture that is always innovative and that expresses the unique beauty of the Made in Italy style: living room furniture, back-to-wall systems, bedroom furniture, wardrobes, beds, complementary items, all made using a selection of excellent raw materials chosen and processed to last. Innovative and cutting-edge products that are a perfect combination of design, functionality and aesthetics, studied to incorporate integrated TV and stereo systems and to guarantee utmost comfort. Moreover, the very flexible offer makes endless solutions possible for every room in the home. This is enhanced by a very high customisation ability capable of meeting the requirements of the most demanding customers.
A design interpreted by the creative concept of the architect Pierangelo Sciuto who, on preparing the various collections, decided to adopt a new way of presenting Presotto’s products using materials, extolling the contamination of natural elements along an original path that includes art, design and bespoke elements which express the company’s philosophy.
All this upholds the Made in Italy concept while maintaining the essence of a special concept of "beauty" that never goes out of fashion.
Lastly, collaborations with internationally-renowned architects and designers such as Renzo Piano, Marco Piva, Lorenzo Bellini, Toyo Ito, are fundamental and an integral part of Presotto's most advanced production.
Presotto Industrie Mobili Spa has always been particularly sensitive to environmental issues and to safety on the workplace. This is why the company has been ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certified since 2006 and in 2014 is entered in the National Register of Italian Manufacturers, getting the brand 100% Made in Italy.
