The Future Comes from Afar
The history of Essepi has its beginnings way back in 1978 in Cavedine, a small village in the Valle dei Laghi, in the green heart of Southern Trentino. Silvio Pedrotti took over his father’s carpentry shop and transformed it into a laboratory of ideas, realizing manufactured articles for furnishing and experimenting on solutions for interior spaces which at that time were considered revolutionary. With the construction boom and the extreme demand for windows and doors in the first half of the 1980s, the know-how became concentrated on the design of windows with a wooden structure. And in 1985, the first, historic hangar was built that houses the laboratory and production: from a manufacturing nucleus, Essepi became an industrial factory. The progressive growth of the company on the market, along with the development of the first standard models and a solid network of sales made Essepi not just a dynamic entrepreneurial construct oriented at environmental sustainability but, starting from the late 1990s, also a brand of excellence in constant expansion, the fruit of the labor of an aesthetic search and of technological innovation that is rigorously homemade.
In 2012, just a few meters away, a new factory was realized that was devoted to the production of X-Lam panels made from certified wood, the majority of which was from nearby in the province of Trentino. The newborn Essepi XXL became the trampoline from which to launch toward the new generation of the construction industry, and it created the basis for a system of company synergy and integrated production between wooden buildings and windows and doors.
Today, Essepi is a leading company in the windows and doors sector and in highly energy efficient construction with respect to all environmental indicators. A company that looks to the future with a passion as ancient as wood.
Nel 2012 viene realizzato a pochi metri di distanza un nuovo stabilimento dedicato alla produzione di pannelli X-Lam da legno certificato in massima parte trentino. La neonata Essepi XXL diventa il trampolino di lancio verso l’edilizia di nuova generazione, e crea le basi per un sistema di sinergia aziendale e di produzione integrata tra edifici in legno e serramenti.
Oggi Essepi è un’azienda leader nel settore dei serramenti e delle costruzioni ad alta efficienza energetica nel rispetto di tutti gli indicatori ambientali. Un’azienda che guarda al futuro con una passione antica come il legno.
