point of view
De'Longhi, president of the group now says "Starting from the big success of the Pinguino De' Longhi, I had the intuition to invest in the air conditioning because I believed, probably correctly, it was a still "young" market and therefore an area that offered great opportunities for the future. The choice of acquaring Climaveneta was not made by chance but has been defined following market investigations; Climaveneta was certainly an interesting company, with significant growth rates, but the aspect that most impressed me was the international presence. In 1994 over 65% of Climaveneta total turnover came from foreign market. For an international company like De' Longhi this was certainly a key ingredient".
Chief Executive Officer
Mr. Carlo Grossi, Climaveneta CEO and Eurovent President says: "Climaveneta has always based his success on thedepth of the range,on innovation and on quality and products reliability.

Units certification of performance in terms of energy efficiency and noise level is at the basis true relationship between Climaveneta and his customers and represent now a guarantee of absolute products reliability. That's because 'I am convinced that with the sepremises, Climaveneta will be able to grow further in the international scene."

Excellent result in Italy but also very good performance of foreign markets. We had good result, even if notexciting, in traditional countries of Western Europe in which Climaveneta has always had an excellent introduction, like Spain, Portugal, England, France, Holland, and an extraordinary growth innon-European countri es such as North Africa, Eastern Europe, India and especially China. This results is inline with expectations and with the strategic plan and the efforts being made to consolidate Climaveneta global presence in international markets.
Climaveneta is now ready to implement a further leap in quality that put the Company among the few who can really compete on global markets and that can address his offer not only to the biggest European markets but also to new and more demanding markets."
The key to success

Nowadays it is quite common to find companies able to become big firms starting from small factory in short times, but usually also their success takes short times. It is also common finding strong companies bought by big groups, totally disappeared in the market because of radical changes made by the new group. Again it is also usual to see leader companies slowly disappear because of lacking in innovation or in anticipating the market. Climaveneta is different. Climaveneta small but continuous growing was started in 1971, year of foundation, and is still continuing in 2011 on his forty Anniversary.1973 - CR
1981 - CAAT
2005 - ERACS-Q
