Along the course of the Po River
The company’s name traces back to Panguaneta, a town settling on the banks of the Po River.
Still today, the river often overflows and floods the fields, and continues to nourish its poplar woods. The Po River later changed its course, to first lap the outskirts and then definitively submerge the town. The corporate founders relocated towards Sabbioneta, and thus gave rise to the processing of poplar wood.
Taking roots in the future
Thanks to the determination of those young people guided by Giuliano Azzi and Antonio Tenca, Panguaneta re-established its factory precisely in Sabbioneta, in the spring of 1960. The factory involved everyone and everything, creating enthusiasm in the youth. It became part of the community and right from the start, targeted its role in a sustainable future, always keeping in line with its roots.
Incredible industrial experience
Many things have happened in half a century of history, but Panguaneta’s success also lies in having always been a protagonist of that “great” family, now in its third generation. The factory has undergone considerable expansion through the years, and has become an important benchmark for the entire Po Valley region.
The link with the woods from which the raw material is drawn, is a key tenet in the formation of a strong supply chain. While the expanse of poplar trees frame the landscape, creating charming ecosystems, the factory stands out along the walls delimiting Sabbioneta, a marvellous city of 14th-century art, created by Vespasiano Gonzaga, the Lord of Mantova. Italian renaissance and environmental sustainability make up Panguaneta’s splendid scenario.
