HISTORY OF THE LONATI GROUP

LONATI GROUP: DO WELL TOGETHER

The Group established by Francesco Lonati represents the commitment, flexible mindset and hunger for growth, characteristics typical of the founder.

Rooted in industrial foundations, LONATI GROUP benefits from absolute world leadership in the textile machinery sector, a position supported by reliability and efficiency, the best know-how, ongoing innovation and unsurpassed standards of quality for products and services. With an extensive sales network that reaches more than 70 countries, Lonati Group is a true point of reference, accessible and open to every market, from emerging to European, Asiatic and American. Concrete management principles, skilled labor, team work and family tradition are the basis and reason for a commercial operating success that has lasted more than 60 years. Incorporating several independent companies with different characteristics and functions from industry to agriculture, from real estate to education - the Group expresses a single will and a single way of operating that is summarized by the three words that identify Lonati style: reliability, efficiency and organization.

FROM LOCAL TO GLOBAL.

VISION

The experience of Lonati Group is part of the traditions and resources of the territory, an on-going evolving story.

In recent years the global market has revolutionised openings and opportunities. The characteristic ability of the Brescia people to adapt and modernise has taken on the challenge, by producing unprecedented projects and ideas, and raising quality standards, in order to cross national borders and respond to the global crisis in record time. This entrepreneurial courage has targeted results. It’s a simple formula: Versatility in any field based upon the proven strength and determination found in tradition, woven from one’s own origins.

PROGRESS IS ALWAYS IN THE AIR WITHIN THE LONATI GROUP.

MISSION

Strong, consolidated leadership guarantees stability

These are the LONATI GROUP's two objectives. High-profile, specialist companies, such as DINEMA, SANTONI, MATEC and SANGIACOMO, have become part of the holding in order to strengthen and increase the company's global leadership position in hosiery machinery. In addition, sound autonomous financial and operational acquisitions in the steel industry, including ALFA ACCIAI, and other important investments in mechanics, real estate, agro-food and research sectors, have expanded the group’s horizons, ensuring the kind of success that is handed down from generation to generation.

“THE BEST WAY NOT TO GET OLD IS TO KEEP ON GROWING.”
