COLOMBO DESIGN STRENGTHENS PARTNERSHIP WITH CESANA
Colombo Design and Cesana continue on their development path by strengthening the strategic
partnership that already links the two companies from 2014 for the production and marketing of
shower boxes in Italy and on all the main foreign markets. Colombo Design has acquired a
corporate participation of Cesana srl, supporting the founding partners in the management of the
company and giving modern production and logistics help, one of the most modern and efficient in
the sector at a European level. Important news that will follow in the coming months. The
production of the shower enclosures will be integrated into the production unit of Terno d'Isola
(BG) starting from the month of September. The commercial and distribution structure will be
strengthened and supported thanks to the physical opening of a prestigious exhibition space in Via
Solferino 18 in Milan. The investments foreseen for the development of products are also
significant and only few will be part of the exhibition at the Salone del Bagno 2018 stand.
