Industrie Cotto Possagno
Our territory and the quality of our raw material.
Possagno, a small town in the province of Treviso, birthplace of the sculptor Antonio Canova, has always been dedicated to the production of bricks thanks to the presence of an extensive deposit of uniform clay that was created 45 million years ago.
In 1997 the five historical families of kilnsmen, decided to pool their agelong experiences to incorporate Industrie Cotto Possagno S.p.A. It was an important process of growth and development in the district of Possagno which has become famous over time in Italy and all over the world for the production of roofing bricks.
Our bent tiles and roof tiles stand out for excellent performances in terms of durability and resistance to atmospheric agents thanks to the unique and peculiar features of the raw material.
1695First written records of the presence of kilns in the Valcavasia area (census after the Santa Costanza earthquake).
1972First tunnel oven in Possagno to replace the Hoffman oven: the automation process starts.
1975Industrial development of the district.
1984The Coppo Possagno Consortium was established.
1998The most important kilns in Possagno pools together: Industrie Cotto Possagno S.p.A. is born.
2001Thanks to the attention to innovation and sustainability Cotto Possagno obtains the patent for the construction of photovoltaic bent tiles and roof tiles.
2009The company, focusing on the improvement of the quality of its products, launches the Coppi Di Più: more weight, more thickness, more resistance.
2015 – 2018Industrie Cotto Possagno is the leading actor of the European LifeHerotile Project which led to the development of Aerotile, the super performing ventilated roof tile.
Construction today is the sector that has the greatest impact on the environment: buildings represent the 40% of all carbon dioxide emissions produced in Europe. The research and development of sustainable pitched roofing solutions is an essential commitment for us to contrast climate change.
We work to improve the quality of construction by offering roofing solutions that allow greater energy efficiency of houses and the increase of their economic value. We are also committed to limit the impact of our production plants on the territory: we do not limit ourselves to comply with the requirements imposed by the legislation, but we constantly search for the improvement.
L’attività di ricerca e sviluppo di soluzioni di coperture a falda sostenibili è per noi un impegno imprescindibile per contrastare i cambiamenti climatici.
Lavoriamo per accrescere la qualità del costruire offrendo soluzioni di coperture che permettano un efficientamento energetico delle abitazioni e la crescita del loro valore economico. Siamo impegnati inoltre a limitare l’impatto dei nostri stabilimenti produttivi sul territorio non limitandoci a rispettare i requisiti imposti dalla normativa, ma operando costantemente nella ricerca del miglioramento.
