Calandrini was born as a factory of religious items towards the end of the 1970s by the will of the founder Mario Busi, who, overturning his paper processing business until then practiced threw himself, with the entrepreneurial courage that had always distinguished him, into this new product sector providing for a strong development and a pool of potential customers far larger than what could have been imagined at first glance.
His choice was to put on the market a whole series of articles that combined the practicality of daily use with a quality / price ratio accessible to the greatest possible number of people, not addressing exclusively to the high end of the market but rather to those who sought and he wanted an economic but dignified article.
This particular feature, production of excellent quality combined with a serious control of costs, has led our company to an exceptional and constant development over time, placing it as the undisputed leader in the world and example to follow in our particular sector.
The recent purchase of the new and vast headquarters with the transfer to this of the various production units, previously located separately, must be seen with this perspective that has always characterized us: maximum commitment and reliability to give our customers the certainty that a Calandrini product , in addition to being guaranteed, it is also the result of a serious and meticulous work, where nothing is left to chance and where, instead of systematically copying items already on the market, we still search for the correctness that has always characterized us, originality of shapes, materials and innovative technologies.
The plant is spread over an area of 4,000 square meters, allowing to contain all processes, from the treatment of raw materials to shipping, under constant control.
The warehouse makes it possible to stock the semi-finished products, so that all the items in the catalog are always available, as far as possible. The mechanical workshop offers us the possibility, in addition to producing catalog items, to make changes to the customer's normal production upon request. Our processes are concentrated mainly on brass and bronze, semi-precious materials that allow more than decent finishes.
The plant has two fundamental departments, in addition to normal drawing and turning: welding, always and only performed with silver, and metal cleaning, an essential and delicate operation that every brass object must undergo before any galvanic treatment.
The galvanic baths inside the plant, allow us an immediate order fulfillment and an assortment of finishes at the customer's discretion. We have bathrooms of 24 kt pure gold, both polished and opaque, palladium similargento very resistant to natural oxidation of the air, shiny and opaque nickel, and finally of an aging bath that gives the objects in brass the patina characteristic of antiquing.
We design and personally take care of every object of ours in its shapes and finishes.
