River S.p.A. was born in 1983 in a small establishment in the surroundings of Lodi.
The company is transferred to the vast and modern settlement of Podenzano (Piacenza), where it is able to make use of a 10.000 Sqm overed surface, on a 30.000 Sqm plot of land.
Concurrently, the production plants for roll painting are completely renovated.
In 2004 the Corno Giovine (LO) establishment is acquired. Here, a modern spray-painting system is installed, in order to ensure River’s offer can cover every necessity in the non-stick cookware industry.
River acquires TOP S.p.A. as its production branch. It immediately finds its footing in the market, thanks to a combination of high productivity and high-quality standards, as guaranteed by the experience and competence of individuals with years of expertise in the production of non-stick aluminum cookware.
The two companies unify in Podenzano’s facility, creating a new, increasingly efficient, and well-organized manufacturing experience.
