A company with strong local roots, but with a recognized international presence.
QUALITY IS TAKEN AS A MORAL COMMITMENT IN EVERY STAGE OF THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS.
The full potential of our production machines is used with the utmost efficiency and respecting the environment Catalanos industrial plants are distinguished by a very high degree of automation; molding, finishing and handling operations are carried out with the latest-generation robotic systems. All processes lay on a productive logistics aimed to the maximum savings of energy and resources.
CWE CATALANO WATER EFFICIENCY. A NEW LABEL MEANING WATER SAVING, EASY CLEANING AND HIGH-PERFORMANCE MANUFACTURING PROCESS OF CATALANOS PRODUCTION.
Catalano WCs, in accordance with CWE mark, are able to flush with very low water volumes. The exstensively research on surfaces continuity and the use of new nanotechnological glazes also applied on hidden areas - avoid the stagnations of water and make the cleaning easier, while reducing the use of water and detergents. Water-saving is the guiding code followed throughout the manufacturing process of Catalanos production.

Advanced equipments and energy saving
OUR AWARENESS IN ENERGY SAVING ISSUE MEANS THAT OUR CONTINUOUS INVESTMENTS ARE ALWAYS AIMED TO ACQUIRE THE LATEST TECHNOLOGIES AVAILABLE.
CATALANO, since its fundation, has always pursued the technological, typological and formal research, with the aim of constantly improving performance and technical quality of its products. The development of industrial synergies, such as the one with SACMI, world leader in equipment manufacturing for ceramics, aims to offer more and more products with excellent quality and fair prices.
The corporate ethics is based on the company's uniqueness and the acknowledged sucess of its products.
Catalano has been committed to an ongoing process of optimization of enterprise management and production process, both oriented to a sensitive environmental sustainability and to improve the quality of work.
The company has implemented strategies aimed to achieve the following purposes:
- reduction of environmental impacts and resource consumption.
- reduction of energy consumption.
- elimination of toxic substances or pollutants released into the environment.
RESPECT OF RAW MATERIAL
Catalano uses first-choice pure raw materials only, without addition of any substance or preparation categorized with toxicity, harmfulness or risk level.
The transformation process is marked by efficient use and valorisation of natural resources (high ratio between really utilized material and volume of material entered in production process).
The use of material is now lowered due to the reduced thickness of new generation products, obtained thanks to cutting-edge technologies tested in Fabrica di Roma.
OPTIMIZATION OF WORK
Catalano pays great attention to environmental efficiency and operating conditions of machinery (high ratio between total number of working hours and yearly amount of pieces [h/m3]). The new linear kiln, one of the largest in the world, requires 1/3 less fuel than previous models.
Offices and production departments waste are collected on a differentiated basis and then converged into the recycling industry.
Catalano production process is marked by the maximum reduction of fumes and toxic or volatile pollutants substances released into the atmosphere. The productive plant established a goal of increased efficiency in the use of energy deriving from non-renewable sources and the introduction of renewable energy sources. A new photovoltaic system, able to provide 200 Kw - 1/4 of the total energy needed - is currently under construction.
Catalano has a closed-loop wastewater recycling system, to prevent dispersal of wastes into the environment and to feed the recycling loop. The water is kept very closed to the place of processing and it is subsequently conveyed to the treatment plant. The water is recycled after the purification.
Catalano WCs, in accordance with CWE mark, are able to flush with very low water volumes. The special study on continuos surfaces and the use of new nanotechnological glazes also applied on hidden areas - avoid the stagnations of water and make the cleaning easier, while reducing the use of water and detergents.
Catalanos plant has a low acustic impact and a low visual and landscape impact.
Thanks to the unification of all operations into a single plant, Catalano reached the maximum reduction of distances in the various phases of production process.
Catalano is committed to the overall reduction and total recycling of its packaging. The products are always provided with information allowing the consumer to use, manage and clean up the products efficiently, to minimize the environmental impact.
