The turning point took place on July 26th when Euroedile was awarded the competitive procedure announced by the Court of Udine for the Friulian company put into liquidation. A solution that will not only give work continuity to all employees, but will revolutionize the production of the Pilosio brand through new construction technologies, capable of lowering production costs.

“We will bring a breath of“ new air ”not only by strengthening the historic Pilosio production, but by implementing the range with innovative materials and new products. All this – says Nereo Parisotto, Sole Director of Euroedile – will allow companies that rely on the Pilosio brand to work better, with more speed and greater safety. To our credit we have 35 years of experience made of field work but above all of engineering studies carried out by Euroedile technicians who have allowed us to create works that others would not have been able sometimes even to think. – reiterates Parisotto.
The cost of the acquisition is 3,500,000 euros but a further immediate investment of 5,000,000 euros is expected within the year to restart the company through a very detailed industrial plan that goes from the reorganization of production processes to the maintenance of machinery and plants, up to the acquisition of the necessary raw materials. By smoothing out the discontent and dissensions that have grown in recent years with the main sector suppliers.
“When I started my first steps in the construction world – comments Nereo Parisotto – Pilosio was an institution in the sector. I could not allow a company so important, and in a region so dear to me, to close. And as I have understood the institutions and workers’ representatives. First of all, I would like to thank the Department of Productive Activities of the FVG Region and the Regional FIM-Cisl who with the Municipal Administration of Tavagnacco have given us all the necessary support to conclude this important operation that will allow us to create an all-Italian excellence. which will be able to deal in a synergistic way not only with the national market but with the global one ”concludes Nereo Parisotto.
The new Triveneto group will divide its headquarters between Postioma and Tavagnacco and the maintenance of the historic Friulian brand will be guaranteed, which has always been recognized as a synonym for high quality Italian production in scaffolding and formwork.
“A godsend” commented by many in Tavagnacco, especially the workers.
“We are highly satisfied with the positive outcome of the entire dispute, a complex negotiation constantly monitored also by the Region and the relevant departments – says the FIM-CISL Regional Secretary Pasquale Stasio – The one achieved, with the acquisition by Euroedile , is an important result that saves a historical reality in the province of Udine with ample potential, and which safeguards all the jobs of the employees currently in force.
An injection of confidence and hope not only for the Pilosio workers and their families, but for the entire Friulian industrial fabric which, in a complicated period, manages to find extremely positive news.
We hope that this acquisition will be the first step for a quick return to the glories that the company has experienced in the past and that have made it known all over the world.
We are also happy that after many years in which this company has been in the hands of investment funds and in the hands of managers who have conducted it up to the agreement, a real Italian entrepreneur has arrived with whom we will be able to deal with “.
