Headquarters and plants
Our company was founded in Emilia, in the Italian Food Valley, an area rich in history and tradition to which we are deeply attached. Our main plant is located in Gavasseto (RE) and has been expanded over time since 1982 in order to increase production capacity and houses a microbiological chemical laboratory and quality control. Today PreGel covers an area of 150,000 square metres (Italy, America and Germany) and has more than 700 employees worldwide working in four plants, three of which are in Italy and one in the United States.
We are present in more than 130 countries through an extensive network of agents and 18 foreign branches.
Automated Logistics Centre in Arceto di Scandiano
Our new and innovative logistics centre is located in Arceto di Scandiano. It covers an area of 114,700 m2 and houses 1573 m2 of solar panels with a power output of 300 kW, blending in without disturbing the surrounding landscape thanks to the presence of over 5210 trees and shrubs.
