1961 was a year of epoch-making changes, part of a period in history characterised by particular economic, cultural and social élan.
On 20 January 1961, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was sworn in as the 35th President of the USA.
On 12 April 1961 the astronaut Jurij Gagarin was the first human being to journey into outer space.
Rondine S.p.A. was founded in the summer of the same year, and soon took root in an area between Reggio Emilia and Modena. Rondine S.p.A. today is one of the most flourishing industrial groups in the sector.
A trip through the first 50 years of the company’s history is more than just a way to celebrate the results achieved; it is also an opportunity to take stock, a useful way to look towards the future, towards new challenges, new targets.
The enthusiasm of the early days has remained unchanged; indeed it has gone from strength to strength, together with the company’s results. These results are giving us the vitality to move on, without ever resting on our laurels. New products, innovative technologies, research and development, quality, design and respect for the environment: these are the values that have guided Rondine through this first half century of history, and that continue to show us the road ahead, both today and tomorrow.
