Our history

Laveggi: in Modena since 1947.

Our company was founded in 1947, immediately after the war, by the brothers Elia and Italo in a small room in the center of Modena.

After the first few years spent carrying out carpentry work, in 1952 the brothers started manufacturing their first bronze and stainless steel manholes. Laveggi was one of the first companies working stainless steel in Modena and its province.

In 1959 the company headquarters were built in the outskirts of Modena and the actual production of manholes began. In 1973 the two founders passed the torch to their sons Mauro and Marco Laveggi and in the late ’90s a new plant in Villavara was opened. It still exists and is still operational.

In 2001 one of the brothers retired and the sons Gian Luca and Gian Paolo Laveggi took over. We have thus carried on our activity to date, increasing our volume of work and customers, with the aim of continuously searching for new technologies and solutions to meet the needs of the market. Today we are one of the leader manufacturers of manholes and manhole covers in the world and our company is still family run, which makes us feel proudly part of a big family.


Laveggi: a family run company

Currently our company has more than 30 internal employees and, despite its distant historical roots, Laveggi is still young and ready to handle orders from all over the world. Its staff is always available to satisfy customer special needs and demands. We aim to continue the activity started by Elia and Italo, with the same family passion that will always distinguish Laveggi for years to come.

Since he was a boy he has held various roles within the production area: “This gave me the opportunity to get to know our products in details and be able to advise customers according to their specific needs”.

“My job consists in monitoring the company’s performance in all of its manufacturing and economic processes and investments, searching for the best possibilities for business development in the workplace and in the business world”.

Due to his technical-mechanical background, Gian Luca is responsible for managing the entire production process. “Our company is constantly evolving thanks to the investments that have always aimed to improve production processes and material research”.


At the gates of Modena

The main plant of our company, opened in the late 90s, is located in Villavara di Bomporto (near Modena). This is where most of the production process takes place. The administrative and commercial offices are located here too. We also have a second plant in Modena, where we manufacture the covers necessary for obtaining the finished product.
