WHO WE ARE

MODELLERIA ZANCHETTIN: A FAMILY BUSINESS

THE IDEA

The company was founded in 1968 by Pierino Zanchettin who started, with some associates, an artisanal production of foundry pattern in wood, resin and metal in different sizes.

Over the years, the company expanded and established itself in the sectors of mechanical engineering, engine manufacturing and furniture, specializing in the creation of pattern on direct orders from the foundries or third party companies.

The accuracy on the customers’ requests and instructions is the company’s trademark which allows, since the beginning of the process, to minimize adjustments risk, to shorten delivery times and to contain costs.

THE GENERATIONAL HANDOVER

A fter thirty years of activity, the business was passed from the father to the sons Enrico and Francesco who decided to start a series of important investments to face new market requirements. In 1991 Modelleria Zanchettin moved to the current headquarters and in 2000 it was equipped with the first numerical control machine. Despite the increasing of the orders and the expansion of the machinery fleet, the company has kept unchanged its artisanal vocation. Together with the 3D technologies and the modern CNC milling machines, the company continues to realize pattern using traditional method and guaranteeing the hand-finishing of all the patterns created.

THE ENVIRONMENT AND THE PROJECTS FOR THE FUTURE

I n 2008 the company celebrates its 40 years of activity and, at the same time, inaugurates the new 68 KW photovoltaic system which crowns the project to produce safeguarding the environment. Receptive to the needs of the national markets, Modelleria Zanchettin invested in four numerical control machines and strengthened the collaboration with more than ten professionals, keepers of  an artisanal know-how which guarantees the quality of the projected and realized patterns. The industrialization didn’t replace the artisanal abilities which allow the company to conquer the design sector, a demanding business area that often resorts to the uniqueness of the manual manufacturing.
