Established in 1992 by Umberto Gessi, the company of the same name, started in a small workshop, was born as a challenge to a mature sector dominated by historical names; a courageous bet at a time when there seemed to be nothing more to be invented in the faucet industry.
Supported by a very clear vision, based on change, innovation and formal and functional research, the Gessi family has gone through new business paths and has managed to create in a very short time an industrial reality of primary importance that today stands as a leader the undisputed sector in terms of size and innovative capacity with a brand that has become an international benchmark for tap design and technology.
Already in 1993 the original workshop was abandoned for a modern building in stone and black glass surrounded by greenery in Serravalle Sesia. Born as a production site, this building now houses the commercial offices, conference rooms and the large corporate showroom.
In 2004, in order to keep up with the extraordinary feedback received from Gessi products on the market, the company has in fact set up a modern production center in the same area, with the creation of a very modern low-impact plant.
The factory, the plants and the entire production process have been designed and implemented with special attention to the protection of the environment and workers' well-being and adopt innovative solutions to achieve these objectives.
The creative, productive and administrative activity of the company is therefore realized in a totally integrated way within a multifunctional industrial park of over 800 thousand square meters that combines technology, eco-architecture and landscape: the Gessi Park.
Since 2006 Gessi has also become a multinational with the establishment of commercial branches in various countries in almost all continents.
In addition to receiving numerous awards for the innovative design of its products, Gessi was named Superbrand of Italy in 2008. In the same year he received the prestigious Red Dot Design Award for communication design.
