For over 60 years, we have been producing pots, pans, skillets and casseroles made of aluminium with non-stick coatings.
The Illa Group consists of two companies: Illa Spa and its subsidiary Nuova Illafor.
Illa Spa was founded in 1946 in Langhirano close to Parma (Italy) as a manufacturer specialising in pressing, embossing and cookware assembly.
Nuova Illafor, founded later in 1983, focuses on the application of non-stick coatings.
From 2010 to 2013, the Illa Group has gone through substantial changes regarding ownership, operational management and investment.
Production, research, marketing and logistics are now located at a new and highly advanced plant in Noceto with a surface of 30,000 square metres (of which 16,000 indoors), 80 employees and an annual production of more than 6 million cookware pieces.
The new facility also ensures a full integration of the entire production cycle from shaping the aluminium disk to the shipment of the end product. Together with the high level of automation and the advanced technological standard of the machinery, this has enabled Illa to maximum cost efficiency and quality that is amongst the highest of European cookware manufacturers.
In fact, the construction of the new plant exactly reflects our corporate philosophy: at a time when many competitors were relocating production to countries with low labour costs, or focusing less on environmental issues, Illa chose to take the path of production efficiency, by concentrating on four strategic pillars:
As a result, the Illa Group today still remains a true advocate of the Made in Italy brand, with production export numbers of over 90% aand some of the most important cookware retailers within the industry amongst our loyal clients. Some of whom now for over thirty years.
