On Saturday the 11th of September 2014 Stefanplast celebrated 50 years of activity with a real party.
The Stefani family, who owns the firm located in Veneto, for the occasion opened the doors of the headquarters situated in Villaganzerla (VI) to the city that first hosted them. During the celebrations, the link between the company and the territory has been greatly highlighted both by the local authorities and by Walter Stefani, son of the founder Antonio and present CEO, who manages the firm together with his sisters Paola and Ornella. Stefanplast can be taken as a paradigm of the many stories of companies based in the North-East that made this land the flagship of Made in Italy. The original entrepreneurship spirit, the ability to offer winning products over time, the courage to change (the company started off as a manufacturer of metal baskets before making a name for itself between the plastic producers), the ability to export worldwide, the possibility to locally find the competences and the professionals necessary to manage the firm.
All and each of these aspects were remembered by Walter Stefani when introducing the celebration day, thanking the collaborators that helped his family building this half a century of history, underlining that Stefanplast recognizes itself in the “human resources” that constitute it. He also stressed the fact that Stefanplast has always been and always will be a Made in Italy company, and won’t surrender to the delocalisation sirens. The Mayor of Castegnero Luca Cavinato, the Chairman of Confindustria Vicenza Giuseppe Zigliotto, the Regional Councillor of the production units Maria Luisa Coppola and the editor of “Il Giornale di Vicenza” all highlighted the importance of Stefanplast for the territory and of the territory fo Stefanplast. In the course of the morning, it was shown a beautiful video with the voice-over of the first employee that recalled the most important milestones of the company. In the afternoon, the gates were opened to the public with a genuine climate of celebration, with food stalls, children’s games and a nice mild weather that allowed to fully enjoy the party.
