Efrem Mazzoleni set up his own business selling supplements and yeast, making use of the experience gained while working for Bonalumi S.p.A., at the time a leading company in the zootechnical sector. Mazzoleni Prodotti Zootecnici was launched.
Two years after having opened the first warehouse in Seriate (Bergamo), the business was moved to Azzano San Paolo, and began to take shape: two employees, two agents and an ever-wider product range.
Business grew, and the sales area widened. The operational headquarters of the company moved to Zanica (Bergamo), in a 1100 m2 warehouse.
€ 8 million in turnover.
Mazzoleni Prodotti Zootecnici became a limited liability company.
€ 16.5 million in turnover.
The company moved to its current headquarters in Cologno al Serio (Bergamo). It had a 4500 m2 warehouse, 13 employees and a sales area which covered the entire country, as well as including a number of European countries.
€ 29 million in turnover.
Mazzoleni Prodotti Zootecnici became a joint-stock company. Andrea, Efrem’s son, joined the company, and began a phase of internal reorganisation which also included a revision of the company image (a stage which coincided with the change in brand).
€ 32 million in turnover.
The Cappella Cantone (Cremona) production plant was inaugurated, with an area of 27,000 m2, 5000 m2 of covered warehouse space, and a manufacturing capacity of 180 tons/day.
There were 32 employees and 38 agents.
The long reorganisation process came to an end with the launching of 5 divisions for the farming market: Bovit (dairy cattle line), Sanyo (hygiene line), Suipro (pig line), Tormix (beef cattle line), Vitamilk (weaning line).
€ 60 million in turnover.
Mazzoleni S.p.A. is a leader in the manufacturing and sales of technologically-advanced products for animal nutrition. It distributes its products in Europe, Africa, South America and Asia.
