Everything starts from a small garage, from which Giorgio Fanti gives life to his project focused on giving a new life to metal packaging. The idea comes from the recovery of empty tuna cans that could be harvested after the liberation of Bologna by the Americans.
The purchase of the first tinplate sheet is for us one of the symbols of the evolution from a small local producer to a major player in the sector.
The first automatic machine for assembling the tinplate cans is purchased.
The acquisition of ICM in Montechiarugolo, specialized in the production of tinplate buckets, represents the first of many steps aimed at expanding its range and gaining experience and knowledge.
With the birth of Gruppo Italiano Imballaggi, production begins at our factory in Bucharest (Romania). We consider this mileston a bridge to Eastern Europe.
Production begins in Tver (Russia), in collaboration with our partners.
To date, the Fanti Group employs the most modern production and management techniques, manufactures more than 100 million cans every year, has 5 production facilities in Europe and is active on 4 continents.
