It was 1862. Initially of a craft nature, the Berardi company began its journey knowing it would need to adapt to the needs of a continually changing society. Up to 1902, four generations of far-sighted entrepreneurs took over the helm, taking into account the needs of each era and reshaping the company to meet the demands of the times. Over the years, Berardi specialised in manufacturing carriages, farm trailers, wine barrels, and various types of items.
Production of wooden packaging
After over 70 years of business, during which Berardi specialised in the production of items in step with the times and with the most widespread activities in the contemporary rural society in which it had its strong roots, the energy of the work team and equipment, which had been substantially modernised over time, were merged to focus exclusively on the production of wooden fruit and vegetable packaging.
The industrial orientation
These are the years in which Berardi was transformed into Berardi Imballaggi and, under the guidance of Domenico Berardi, the current owner, takes on an industrial nature. The implementation of cutting-edge technology made it possible to expand the assortment of services offered, with the start of the production and marketing of cardboard packaging (1983), plastic packaging (1990), and semi-finished products (1994).
The technological orientation
With undisputed entrepreneurial skill and experience, Domenico Berardi, with his children Francesco and Antonella working by his side in managing the company, continued developing what was once a craft enterprise into a company that now has industrial dimensions and ambitions. This can be seen in the new 38000 m2 production site, the futuristic steel structure built according to the most modern technology, and Domenico and his children's natural drive toward constant improvement, technological investment, and production implementation.
The sustainable orientation
Berardi Imballaggi began an engaging, sustainable revolution. The installation of a polypropylene crate recycling plant meant that waste material could take on a new life as new packaging. However, the revolutionary journey undertaken by Berardi Imballaggi was inspired by overall sustainability. This path is leading to great results in terms of resource management and the wellbeing of its employees who are involved in personal and professional growth projects on a daily basis.
