Fundamental principles

Improvement, while respecting nature

Historically speaking, as a company, Industria Galvanica Dalla Torre Ermanno e Figli S.r.l., has unceasingly engaged in leading-edge work in the field of ecology and in associated problem areas. For example, start-up for the design/planning phase for the process wastewater purification plant dates back to 1968 (eight years before the first Italian water protection law, the “Merli” Act of 1976). The plant’s activities started up in 1970, when production began at the Fontane facility and headquarters.

The table below provides the major guidelines and projects of the company from the 1990’s to the present day
