The Sofidel Group is now present in 13 countries3 throughout the world and has reached a production capacity of over a billion tonnes per year. In the last twenty years the market has undergone a radical transformation, and the Sofidel Group has met the challenges posed by its own growth in a new and constantly changing context with a careful and measured strategic planning process.
The Group’s business activities have gone through four major strategic growth phases.
In Phase 1 (1966-1990), the company focussed on creating a solid production base in Italy, mainly oriented towards the development of plant quality and technological and operating efficiency.
In Phase 2 (1990-2007), the internationalisation process was started in Europe, through the creation of new, well distributed greenfield production sites.
In Phase 3 (2007-2015), the company made some important acquisitions in Europe.
In Phase 4 (2015-2020), the Group grew further, increasing its production capacity in operating sites in Europe (organic growth) and started the internationalisation process in the United States, progressively taking control of different areas.
