Established in Maranello (MO) in 1962, Ceramiche Piemme specializes in the production of Made in Italy ceramic floor and wall tiles and is based in Fiorano Modenese (Mo).
After previous design collections created in association with Gordon Guillaumier and Pierre Charpin, Ceramiche Piemme has started an important collaboration with the prestigious London-based studio Benoy A partnership with a major international player that, together with the opening of the London branch Piemme 40, highlights the international character of the Fiorano Modenese brand, which is renowned for quality and innovation in the ceramic industry.
The large product range includes collections designed for interior design but also for outdoors and large highly-trafficked public premises. With 2019 the company has expanded its range with "Ceramiche Piemme Contract": a division dedicated to ceramic collections designed to support the designer in the choice of finishes for public and private spaces.
To drastically reduce the consumption of natural resources and CO2 emissions into the atmosphere, Ceramiche Piemme has invested in the modernization of its production facilities with special focus on the heat recovery of its kilns in favour of sprayers and dryers.
The recovered heat is also used to heat the production departments, with a further reduction of CO2 emissions amounting to over 4200 tonnes/year.
Thanks to a partnership with the UK institute which promotes LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, GBC Italia promotes and adapts to the Italian situation the parameters which establish precise design and building criteria for healthy and energy-efficient buildings. It also sets a market value for “green buildings”, stimulates competition between companies on the issue of the environmental performance of buildings and encourages aware consumption behaviour among end users.
In November 2017, Ceramiche Piemme was one of the winning companies in the “CONAI Competition for Prevention – Developing the environmental sustainability of packaging” (2017 Prevention Competition Regulations) which rewarded the most innovative and eco-sustainable packaging solutions on the market from the two-year period 2015-2016.
