In 1954 Oreste Silingardi, tenacious man of great entrepreneurial spirit, founded the Silingardi, a small family business that immediately reveals a great potential.
When at the pragmatic and effective ability of the founder joins the inventiveness of his son Nando, (always supported by the irreplaceable contribution of his wife Leda) Silingardi is enriched by an unique and exclusive product:
The patent licensed Silibox, a wooden box fully collapsible.
Patent whose value is immediately clear to Alberto and Andrea (Nando’s sons).
Alberto creative and dreamer, main designing mind. He loves the forefront of production and for nothing in the world would renounce to the feelings of directly participate to the emergence of a product.
Andrea lively, enterprising, forward looking, always attentive to the needs of the user. Featuring an open mind, able to grasp and implement the changes and experiments required to follow a constantly changing world. Roberto at his side, longtime friend of the family, thanks to a long and proven experience in business, he makes a significant contribution by channeling all the energy in the right direction.
To meet market demand increasingly challenging, exigent and diversified, the company splits into two.
oriented towards satisfying the demands of the industrial market.
, at the start mainly linked to the sector "wooden containers for bottles", it is now able to provide packaging for any type of requirement and need.
Perfect blend of tradition and innovation SILINGARDI SRL
and SILBOARD SRL
represent today an indisputable point of reference in the world of packaging.
But also SOCIAL COMMITMENT
: since 2003 in fact they collaborate with the prison of Monza; for over ten years detainees have been learning to build Silingardi and Silboard boxes. The intent is to transform detention into an opportunity for growth, a real investment for a better future society.
The traditional wooden box owes its name to the birth of this project. “Xdono” box, where the "forgiveness" is not a static point of arrival but a push to restart: learn a job to optimize and facilitate the detainees reintegration into society.
