Atlas Concorde Expands Finale Emilia Facility

Published: July 25, 2022

Atlas Concorde announces an investment in the expansion of the Finale Emilia facility in Italy with a new line dedicated to the production of large porcelain slabs. The goal of the operation is to consolidate Atlas Concorde’s leadership as an international partner for all ceramic surfaces.

In addition to the 160 million Euros already allocated during the last five years to increase its operational capacity, the company will invest a further 60 million Euros, which is expected to generate a 60% increase in the current number of jobs at the Finale Emilia site, mainly involving qualified professionals like engineers and experts. The new plant will produce Italian-made porcelain slabs in large sizes for the more than 120 countries served worldwide.

Environmental sustainability will be one of the key assets of the investment. Thanks to a modern photovoltaic system, CO2 emissions into the atmosphere are expected to be reduced by about 2,000 tons per year. Construction has already started and production is scheduled to launch in June 2023. 

“The investment announced today further strengthens our production of large porcelain slabs and demonstrates our desire to support the growth of our customers in a competitive landscape where ceramic slabs are becoming as popular as the large porcelain tiles and ceramic wall tiles that the company continues to develop,” said observed Maurizio Mazzotti, CEO of Atlas Concorde. “It also underscores Atlas Concorde’s commitment to contributing to a zero-carbon future through the application of the highest standards of sustainability. Our warmest thanks go to all the institutions, public administrations and social forces in the area who have proven to be crucial partners in the development of this project.”
