From Piccolo Espansibile to Svecom - P.E.
After the Second World War, Italy was reborn as there was a willing to improve, new ideas & innovation to be implemented and a skill set to be put into work: it was the period of economic boom. This was the perfect time to start a new business. In Vicenza, a small city in Northern Italy, three young bright engineers with talent, Giovanni Marin, Giancarlo Marin and Ferdinando Lovato, with a few colleagues, opened a small factory to design and build the
first expansion systems for the web fed industry. Piccolo Espansibile was the name of the start-up company and its growth was fuelled by their skill and entrepreneurial flare.
In 1986 another leap forward, Al Pretto, a relation of Giancarlo Marin, founded the Goldenrod Corporation in Connecticut, United States of America, as a subsidiary of Svecom - P.E. Today Goldenrod is an Independent company that is fully committed to the support of Svecoms sales, product innovations and technical assistance throughout North America.
Up to this moment the second generation is leading these visionary companies, while the third one is starting to be a part of their reality.
To this day, Svecom has never stopped growing: we are a business with over 200 employees, a production facility of 25,000 square meters and a sales & technical network that covers the globe.
