The Saint-Gobain Gyproc plant at Casola Valsenio, near Ravenna, celebrates the 25th anniversary of the launch of the first production line for plasterboard in Italy.
The Casola Valsenio plant is one of the main production sites of Saint-Gobain Gyproc, the worldwide leader on the market of dry systems and plaster-base finishes.
The plant was founded in 1983 and concentrated at first on the production of plaster-base finishing products, which was then combined in 1991 with Italy’s first production facility for plasterboard sheets. The factory covers an area of about 8 hectares, with 20,000 square meters of indoor space, a few kilometers from the quarry of Monte Tondo, where the raw material is obtained.
Over 25 years Saint-Gobain has constantly conducted research on products, to achieve sustainability and habitat comfort, leading to the development of Activ’Air® technology, capable of reducing levels of formaldehyde and VOCs by up to 80% in interiors.
