Franco Brugnotto started Brugnotto srl in a small workshop in the family’s home. Our first products were turned components made from solid wood.
Franco built the first production plant in Pero di Breda di Piave, that included a spray shop and more advanced machinery.
He added a panel processing plant to the existing production equipment. Our company has now two production plants, one in Pero di Breda di Piave and one in Zenson di Piave.
Never resting on his laurels Franco added 8 machines that are able to work wood in 3D thanks to CAD CAM software.
Zenson di Piave becomes the main plant. Production expands to an industrial scale and we added the latest panel handling machinery to speed up production and maximise efficiency in our new production facility.
We created two new brands to add clarity to what we produce.
Our SHOP INTERIORS brand designs and produces high end modular furniture systems.
Whilst out HI DISPLAY brand designs and produces bespoke POS and product displays made from many materials including (wood, cardboard, plexiglass, metals, etc…).
Saw our SHOP INTERIORS brand exhibit at the World’s no. 1 Retail trade fair, EuroShop. From the contacts that we made at EuroShop we started to develop our domestic and international distributor network. Our first international SHOP INTERIORS showrooms were opened in Norway, France and Switzerland.
We decided to combine our solid wood and panel plats to run side by side in a single 20,000 m2 production plant with many experienced designers and technicians These developments enabled us to offer our clients a wider range of options while improving production efficiencies.
The ENJOY brand is formed, creating and designing lines for the hospitality and food industry (bars, wine shops, grocery stores). Brugnotto takes part in HostMilano, the Trade fair in Milan dedicated to the world of catering and hospitality.
