The origins

From a "Swiss Branch" to Cattaneo Impianti SA
In 2008, Italian parent company Cattaneo Impianti S.r.l., present for over 65 years in the Como area, was invited by a well-known pharmaceutical industry in the Lugano area to intervene on the breakdown of a freeze dryer; soon after this first contact with the Ticino region, Cattaneo Impianti decided to open a branch in Chiasso to assess the possibility of operating on Swiss territory in the same sectors in which the company already operated. Initially the company was called “Cattaneo Impianti S.r.l. Branch of Chiasso -Swiss Branch ". In time, the accomplishments on the territory and the desire to be an integral part of the Ticino entrepreneurial fabric, brought to the establishment of the Swiss company Cattaneo Impianti SA, in 2012.

The beginnings
The initial activities took place in two small rooms and a warehouse in the center of Chiasso: initially the team, that consisted of a salesman, an electrical engineer, a foreman and a secretary, began operating in the sectors in which it possessed strong know-how deriving from parent company Cattaneo Impianti Srl, therefore design and construction of electrical, mechanical and automation systems in the industrial sector.

Cattaneo Impianti expands its operations
After a few years of business growth, the company moved to its new headquarters in Chiasso, with an open space technical office, a secretariat, a workshop and a warehouse.

The evolution of the company’s structure
The large influx of customers, projects and opportunities expanded the company from an initial staff of four people to the current 25 people, with increasingly specialized skills in the various sectors of industry.

Expansion
Ever since its beginnings Cattaneo Impianti placed great importance in the know-how it acquired, but maintained equal openness to the evolution of technologies, thus extending its skills in all sectors of the specialist industry and integrating them with new skills.

Corporate values and principles
The company has always operated and was founded on the principles of quality, efficiency, professionalism, and passion. Values that still characterize the work of Cattaneo Impianti as they represent its foundations.

Long-lasting relationships
The values dear to Cattaneo Impianti foster as a natural consequence a consolidated and lasting relationship with Customers. The Project Manager is an essential professional figure that was introduced many years ago as a reference for the Customer and as a guarantee of effectiveness and respect for quality and timeliness.

Organization
Since the company's beginnings the internal organizational approach was based on the needs of the Customer, even for projects of medium and high complexity or with extensive territorial distribution. The subdivision of the technical office into thematic areas (electrical, mechanical, automation, specialist sectors) and the assignment of a specific Project Manager, represent a unique reference for the Customer.

Uniqueness

Multinational vision
Cattaneo Impianti has historically consolidated its experience and professionalism which allow it to interface with multinational companies, guaranteeing all the fundamental aspects of projects that require organization, safety, quality and respect of costs and timeliness.

Multidisciplinarity and specialization
Cattaneo Impianti has always taken care of two fundamental aspects in structuring its offer. First, the ability to present itself in application sectors with a wide implementation spectrum and, second, enhancing the specialist needs required specifically for particular application areas.

Single interlocutor
The multidisciplinary approach allows Cattaneo Impianti to offer its services as a single supplier in projects of medium and high complexity, which require competences that are clearly multidisciplinary and, on the other, highly specialized. The advantage for the customer is to have a single interlocutor capable of providing answers for every design and implementation aspect.

The future

Sectoral approach

Consolidation and evolution
The strength of Cattaneo Impianti is in its decades of experience in the plant engineering sector. Since 1950, the company has consolidated a status quo that translates decades of experience into financial solidity, site safety, growth of multidisciplinary technical expertise within the company, ability to serve sectors that require dedicated procedures, a historical and consolidated customer portfolio, but also a conscious orientation towards social responsibility.
