Sanac at Vado Ligure

In 1908 Vado Ligure Unit was built by a company named “Costituenda Società materiali Refrattari ing. Enrico Zanelli'' and the production was exclusively of silica refractories.
In 1923, the unit joined ILVA and subsequently was sold in 1952 to SANAC (founded on 10.26.1939). In the '50s, all SANAC shares move to FINSIDER group.

Vado Ligure unit production was approx 2000 t/month of silica products but in 1964 was converted to unshaped and slip cast shaped production. In 1983, for financial reasons, the property is transferred from SANAC SpA to NUOVA SANAC SpA, in 1989 the shares move from FINSIDER to ILVA SpA and in 1995 from ILVA SpA to RIVA Group.
