Welcome to Saime Ceramiche!
SAIME (Società Anonima Industrie Materiali Edili) was founded in 1938 in Sassuolo by the Gambigliani Zoccoli family, who developed the first porcelain stoneware production with innovative tunnel kilns replacing the old Hoffmann furnaces. Following a corporate crisis in 1987, Saime was taken over by the Riwal group, and subsequently became one of the largest and most productive plants in the district. In 2007 SAIME, along with the entire Riwal group, (which at the time was also comprised of the commercial brands Alfa and San Prospero Lux) became part of the Casalgrande Padana group. With this last acquisition the SAIME brand absorbed the SAN PROSPERO brand while a process of radical transformation of the site began within the Maranello factory which, over 10 years’ time, led to the updating of almost all the equipment (with a total investment of approximately 50 million euros in equipment and construction work). Final plant renovations were completed in 2017, which included an innovative production line for ceramic panels. Today the Maranello plant is one of the leading plants of the Casalgrande Padana group, specialized in large size tiles. Our future development is that of a plant dedicated to the production of ceramic panels with a total capacity of 15,000 square meters/day, also equipped with an internal cutting and processing system. The aim of the latest investments is to strengthen the SAIME brand by expanding its offer of both traditional materials and the most innovative materials on the market.
