Rondine S.p.A 


Established in 1961, Rondine S.p.A. formed the main nucleus of a holding company. Subsequently other tile manufacturers such as Hilton, Fontana, Sassolgrande, and Bismantova merged in the group. In 1998, Rondine entered the worldwide market with three brands RHS, FONTANA BISMANTOVA and KERMONT, operating in three production plants. In 2005 it signed an agreement for its entry as majority holder in the share capital of Spray Dry, a company which has been operating in the raw materials sector for the ceramics industry for thirty years. This agreement constitutes a veritable strategic alliance for both parties, aiming, on the one hand, to achieve vertical integration upstream of the production process for Rondine, and on the other, to generate technical and production synergies between these two industrial concerns.


The Rondine Group has two plants for the production of high-tech, low environmental impact Porcelain Stoneware.
This extremely innovative and flexible system takes just 50 minutes to go from powder mixing to the finished product.
The speed of the production process makes it possible to check the results in real time and makes any necessary modifications quickly and effectively.
The entire cycle, including product palletisation, is completed in just 60 minutes.
In addition to quality and production performance, special attention is given to energy saving, workers’ safety, environmental impact, and other aspects.


Double-loading Porcelain Stoneware

Double-loading porcelain stoneware possesses all the technical qualities of stoneware, extending its possible applications thanks also to its excellent aesthetic qualities. The long working process, which is arranged in three primary phases (1 sq.m. per minute output from the press, compared to 4 sq. m. per minute from the traditional method), creates a material with superior technical qualities, which is compact and has signigicant resistance characteristics.

Acif was founded in 1962 and soon became one of Sassuolo’s leading tile manufacturers.The company’s growth was stimulated by its technological innovations such as the switch to porcelain stoneware and white body tiles.The 1997 merger with Emilceramica led to productive advantages and industrial expansion, aimed at improving product quality and fully exploiting the different areas of expertise present in the Group’s companies.The effectiveness of the strategies chosen by the company was further confirmed when it achieved UNI EN ISO 9001 certification for the whole production cycle. All of these achievements were realised according to an ecological approach, an aspect of paramount importance for Acif and the Emilceramica group as a whole, and one that is pursued and achieved through the creation of an environmentally friendly production process with pollution levels even lower than legally permitted limits.Acif recently introduced new product ranges, a new management team and innovative merchandising instruments that form the basis of its brand repositioning strategy.Several million Euros of investments have equipped Acif with cutting edge production plant, the research team has designed product ranges in line with market trends and developed to anticipate them and the marketing division has devised and created a new corporate identity, catalogues and merchandising tools to boost the exposure of both products and brand.Acif’s new company policy puts wall tiles amongst the priority brand restyling and expansion objectives, a strategic repositioning for tackling new market segments with contemporary products characterised by a high conceptual appeal.
