Where does Paderno come from?
The 1997 saw the set-up of Sambonet Paderno Industrie S.p.A., following the acquisition of Sambonet by Paderno s.r.l.. Since the mid-nineteenth century, Sambonet has been a standard-bearer for Italian excellence throughout the world, producing flatware and holloware in silver-plated and stainless steel, from a classic to a modern and design-driven style. In 2001, Paderno and Sambonet arrived in Orfengo (Novara), where the headquarters of the Group were set up in a new and modern plant designed by architect Enrico Frigerio. This facility houses not only the factory, the warehouse and a modern laboratory, but also the showroom, the outlet store and a recreation area for staff. In 2009, the acquisition of the prestigious German company Rosenthal permits Sambonet Paderno Industrie S.p.A. to enhance its brand portfolio (Sambonet, Paderno and Arthur Krupp) with the addition of leading names in the porcelain sector, such as Rosenthal, Thomas and Hutschenreuther. The Italian Group now plays a leading role in the production of top-quality items for the tabletop and the kitchen, aimed at covering all the needs required by the market.
