From small local company to solid international business.
A history that started in 1946, when Antonio Marchi decided to follow in the footsteps of his father Girolamo by acquiring a small typography shop in the heart of Vicenza. A historical moment, the post-war period, in which one returned to looking at the future with confidence: it was thanks to precisely this kind of vision, an innovative approach and a strong focus on results, that an extraordinary process of growth began, which led the company to becoming, from a small local company, a solid international business synonymous with quality and reliability.
Today, after more than 70 years, Palladio Group has more than 800 employees in eight production plants located in Italy, Ireland, Serbia and Russia, able, every day, to meet the needs of its customers with customised products and state-of-the-art services.
From the solution-oriented approach, The Phactory DOO was established: a team of graphic arts professionals dedicated to design, pre-print and consulting services, able to provide the customer with customised files ready for high quality printing.
Palladio Group acquires Poliweb Graphics S.r.l. (PWG), an Italian company specialised in the design and production of special adhesive labels.
The new production plant Palladio BNM is inaugurated in Russia.
PhutureMed is established, a programme designed to develop innovative smart packaging solutions for the medicine of the future.
Palladio Zannini innovates and becomes Palladio Group S.p.A. Even the foreign offices in Serbia and Ireland, Zannini East and Zannini Ireland are also witnessing this evolution, becoming Palladio East and Palladio Ireland, respectively.
As part of a strategy to diversify its activities and services, Palladio Zannini takes over the company Pharmaceutical Contract Packaging Pharma Partners, integrating it into a broader project of industrial growth.
The Serbian subsidiary Zannini East celebrates its tenth anniversary; the company’s development and growth are such that Dr. Marchi does not hesitate to approve the plan to double the production plant by 2014.
The merger between Palladio and Grafica Zannini is formalised. Palladio Zannini Industrie Grafiche Cartetecnic S.p.A. was established
The acquisition of Grafica Zannini S.p.A. takes place: the group is enriched with three new production plants in Tuscany, one in Ireland and one in Serbia. The Group is an absolute leader in the secondary packaging sector for the pharmaceutical industry in Italy.
The official Start-Up of the Leaflet division was established on the Dueville site, thus expanding the range of secondary packaging products offered to its customers.
50 years after the foundation, a second production plant was opened in Thiene. The production capacity doubles and, at the same time, the packaging market also extends to the cosmetics industry.
The work is constantly increasing and the company moves to the new production plant in Dueville, still today the head office. In the same year, Antonio’s son, Mauro Marchi, makes his entry into the company, third generation of entrepreneurship.
The technological updating of the printing machines, die-cutters and folding machines begins. A process that will continue without interruption in the coming years, supported by the entry of new, important orders (Mondadori, folding cartons for the pharmaceutical industry, etc.).
As the work increases, S.I.T.A.P. moves to a new production plant in the eastern part of Vicenza. The company changes its name and becomes Palladio Industria Tipolitografica S.p.A.
Girolamo Marchi, with his sons Antonio and Aldo, underwrites an increase in capital and his family thus takes control of the company.
The former Tipolitografia Raschi assumes the new name of S.I.T.A.P. (Società Industria Tipolitografia Andrea Palladio) whose new partners are Pietro Zenere, Luigi Rossato and Gaetano Falcipieri. Luigi Rossato withdraws from the company almost immediately and his shares are transferred to Girolamo Marchi.
The historic Tipolitografia Raschi, which was active in Vicenza since 1873, was transferred by the heirs of its founder, Girolamo Raschi, to Giovanni Battista Malaman. The production mainly concerned tourist postcards, drug labels, business cards and pamphlets.
Talent. a resource to cultivate every day.
We have always believed in the value of people and the importance of investing, on a daily basis, in training activities that create great growth opportunities for our employees. From the desire to cultivate the culture of learning and to share company know-how, the Palladio Academy was founded in July 2016: a training programme of excellence, defined as “a new way of knowing knowledge.”
A training project focused on developing employee skills through training courses developed on an ad hoc basis, based on the professional level. Palladio Academy is managed by the ten founders, assisted by over thirty-five trainers who, through their commitment and consistency, help to further the objective of maintaining a high standard of training in all the Group’s facilities.
To disseminate the company’s know-how, Palladio Academy also uses valuable tools such as Palladio Wiki, a veritable encyclopaedia of Palladio Group knowledge. Knowledge is a common resource: for this reason, every employee or collaborator can access Palladio Wiki and consult it to find information, updates or in-depth information about everything that concerns the world of Palladio Group.
A success story.
The search for excellence has always been in our DNA. We are able to guarantee it every day, thanks to the commitment and passion of our team, to which we dedicate each and every success we have achieved over the years.
