LANZ 1962, our story begins

At the beginning the company, founded by Mr. Rino Lanzetta, was specialized in surface grinding of steel products, and the manufacturing of blades was introduced in the mid ’60s.

In the ’80s thanks to his experience in steel and new technology, the production of industrial blades became the core business.

In the ’90s major investments in technology and human resources lead to enhancing the quality, and in 1997 Rino’s sons, Giorgio and Luca, took over the management of LANZ.

In the year 2000 LANZ placed the factory in a new and more functional site which meets better the new production requirements and in the following years they brought, thanks to further investments in technology, the quality to levels of excellence to be able to compete in the new globalized world.

Look to the future and take care of new needs of the market are the new challenges that LANZ wants to undertake, always for the customer satisfaction

Go to thefuture– a life for knife!
