The roots of Gruppo Zucchetti are sunk in solid family tradition. Three generations have followed on since 1929 when Zucchetti Rubinetteria was founded and consisted in industrial tap and valve manufacture. At the end of the 40s Mario Zucchetti became head of the company and his steady hand led it to success. Over the same period it was decided to change production over to chrome-plated domestic sanitary fixtures, exploiting the post war reconstruction period. In 1970 the group’s second company was established, Zucchetti Mario Spa, which specialises in hot brass forging. Omez Spa, dedicated to moulding of plastic items, was established in 1983.The last acquisition is really recent, beginng of 2007, and concerns the company Kos Spa that produces design bath tubs and shower cabins.Research, technological innovation and product quality have always been Zucchetti’s trademark. Among its various success stories it is hard to forget Zetamix 6000, the first mono-block mixer taps made in Italy, in 1975, or Isystick the world’s first mixer to be fitted under the ceramic surface, dated 2001.
