FOPPA PEDRETTI came into being from the passion of its founder, Ezio Foppa Pedretti, for wood, a material which par excellence is natural. The adventure began immediately after the Second World War, in 1946, in the attic of a house in the province of Bergamo, where the young Ezio enjoyed himself transforming waste from his uncle’s carpentry shop into toys. And it was with toys that FOPPAPEDRETTI began its productive and commercial activity, before different market needs and the farsightedness of the founder made it necessary to diversify the assortment of articles for early childhood, the launching pad of the company and its business card for decades.
The first high chair came into being at the end of the 1950s, then the cots, the changing tables, furniture for children’s bedrooms and, in the 1980s, furniture for gardens and verandas and household objects. The rest of these were the Asso ironing board and the ladders for home use, still bestsellers today, which transform ordinary household tools into revolutionary workstations. This is the meaning of the company slogan, ”The tree of ideas”, which also gives its name to the company’s stores: its fruits are products which are justified in the attentive study of the values of wood, in order to satisfy, and even anticipate, market demand.
"We believe in quality, in the values that remain unchanged in time.
We believe in the force of ideas, which simplify everyday life."
Materials quality, practical to use, functional and easy to handle, together with elegance in the design and attention to safety make FOPPAPEDRETTI a solid company in the panorama of Italian industry and an important element of Italian industry in the world.
The main features of FOPPAPEDRETTI products are the following:
made in Italy
All the products are designed and manufactured in Italy, to guarantee consumers of quality and safety during every phase of production
The products are long-lasting thanks to the choice of the best materials
Natural and 100% ecological: the company only uses wood from certified geographical areas and from woods involved in reforestation schemes controlled by local regulations and checked by the forestry commission
Foppapedretti supports the projects of Bioforest, the non-profit association for reforestation and environmental recovery. Furthermore, the company has adopted the FSC procedure
(Forest Stewardship Council, an international NGO).
water based paints
Foppapedretti uses non-toxic water based paints: this represents a demanding economic choice, but one that guarantees the reduction of harmful emissions into the environment and at the same time the safety of the staff employed in the process
All the wood scraps are collected and, thanks to a specially devised process they are re-used as fuel to heat the
factories and offices. The air inside the factories is
continually extracted and after dust collection it is filtered and returned to the production environment
Foppapedretti owns a long list of patents which have made its products unique and although they are often copied, they are matchless for their practicality and design. All the products comply with the standards and regulations of the European Union.
