Forty Years of History

Valter Palladini began his activity
in the field of ceramics in 1974.

In 1977 Valter Palladini established Euromontaggi. The company employed a team of installers technicians, selling and manufacturing machines and materials for the tile industry.

In 1996, after obtaining excellent results for wear-proof rubber and rapid vertical dryer, Euromintaggi has become CERTECH.

The evolution of the company has been characterized by a great attention towards time. Time as opportunity to acquire experience and deep facts knowledge and not as a limit or excuse to frantically take hold of technical notions.

Time as comparison, because time is the most important aspect we share with others: each idea we may have or project we realize must come to terms with others’ ideas and projects. Communication is therefore the only tool needed to produce or accept real innovation.

Time as freedom, as a possibility to invent, as free time to expand affections and passions: family, mechanics, good food, cigars.

Time as rhythm

In the courtyard of the Certech factory, Valter Palladini has planted three olive trees. They are over 200 years old but they are still young. Olive trees can live up to two thousand years. One of the features of extremely old trees is their capacity to re- generate their trunks, which may seem hollow and dry, and give plenty of fruit.

Trusting Certech means trusting those who works to win the time wear. Certech’s qualified team is always willing to tackle any problem you may have.

A machine that is sold is not a machine that is forgotten. Because people that work and confront themselves with our machines every day are at the centre of our work.

Time as quality

Being oriented to satisfy the requirements of the ceramic sector, Certech has involved a steady technological research with the purpose to produce advanced and high technical performance. Based on this, on January 1st, 1992, Certech established AR.T.I. GOMMA in Bagnacavallo (RAVENNA), a company specialized in rubber items manufacturing, oriented to serve this market offering exceptional quality products. After 18 years of activity, AR.T.I. GOM- MA, changed its name to RUBBER TECH, favoring the evolution of the reference markets, transforming itself in a firm that produces innovation.

This is how RUBBER TECH, leader in this sector, has begun its activity. The manufacturing unit includes 17 presses, 2 mixers, 9 staff members and 2000 SQMT of work floor. A yearly production of 1.000.000 Kg of rubber mixture allows RUBBER TECH to supply an outstanding product to the ceramic world. Research, technology and efficiency identify and characterize our production, because RUBBER TECH, with its twenty years of experience, has one main goal: to satisfy the needs of a sector in continuous and constant evolution and to produce cutting edge items to contribute to the development of Italian and international ceramics.
