De Grandi S.r.l was born as a trade company in 1936. It specializes in Industrial Chemicals.
The products sold for the rubber industry are mainly chemicals, such as: accelerants, antioxidants, processing aids etc., reinforcing fillers (carbon black, precipitated silica), inert charges (caolins etc.) and metallic oxide of zincand magnesium. Over the year, the company has been working on the development of shoe-making industry, based in Vigevano.
The transformation of De Grandi S.r.l took place in early 80’s, when the economic boom connected to footwear industry was already facing a decay. Taking advantage of the technological experience and thanks to the acquisition, in the 90’s, of the plant in Tromello (Pavia), De Grandi turned into a full-fledged producer company.
