Over the last seven years the multinational corporation Geberit has implemented an investment plan in terms of production capacity and logistics management at the manufacturing facility of Villadose, Rovigo, to support local producers and boost the national economy.
The Silent-PP production line is one of the most modern plants in the world, 120 meters in length, and also includes a fully automated packing plant, with a production line active 24 hours a day, 340 days per year.
