Company

1966 – 1982

1962 - In a small village in the Treviso hills the founders Nino Gasperini and Angelo Tonella, who traded in lumber, were among the first to sense the importance of proposing floorboards also in solid wood, which at that time came from the former Yugoslavia. And so the first truckloads of valuable lumber began to arrive through enchanted woods and gentle hills.

1982 - Very quickly, wooden flooring became the company’s main product. To manufacture it with painstaking care, Nino Gasperini and Angelo Tonella, who is still active in the company, acquired further specialization, thereby preparing the launching pad for Crespano Parchetti. The name was chosen to underline the strong ties with their territory and the woodworking tradition that has been typical of Crespano del Grappa for centuries. The wooden floorboards became increasingly popular and their renown began to spread beyond the regional boundaries.

1997 – 2004

1997 - This year saw the beginning of the revolution that in just a few years took the company to success as one of the most important in Italy in the field of creating valuable pre-finished wooden floorboards. Crespano Parchetti started the innovative production of three-ply floorboards, at that time unknown in Italy and destined to become the product of the future. Antico Asolo, large-size three-ply parquet, was introduced onto the market.
2004 - The company’s environmental sensitivity was confirmed by an important acknowledgement. Crespano Parchetti was one of the first companies in Italy to achieve UNI EN ISO 14001 2004 environmental certification. The entire work process for our wooden floorboards is inspired by the philosophy of environmentally sustainable living, cradle to cradle: a virtuous, more responsible cycle of products designed, made, used and managed to the end of their useful lives in a totally ecological way.

2008 – 2010

2008 - Crespano Parchetti became CP Parquet: a new, more dynamic and modern name that maintained its distinguishing link with its territory of origin. The course of innovation increasingly involved all fields, from production systems to strategies, including the adoption of a new brand name. A new Sales Director, Gianni Miatello, arrived in the company and became the driving force behind a turning point and renewed enthusiasm for production and sales. CP Parquet also changed its style of communication and commissioned the Marcantonio advertising agency to enhance the image of wooden flooring and transmit the company’s special attention to nature.
2009 - PEFC and ISO 9001 certifications were also achieved for quality management. To ensure full observance of precise requisites with regard to sustainable forest management, CP Parquet uses European and exotic timber only from cultivated forests or responsibly managed areas. The entire production cycle still takes place in-house in Italy, with absolute quality control. The process involves exclusively water-based varnish and natural oil with extremely low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC).

2011 – 2012

2011 - CP Parquet became a member of Best Up, the most important circuit for promoting sustainable living, and launched its new line of Onda flooring, which features a detailed process to reproduce aging which includes even the grooves that form over time around the knots in wood.
2012 - CP Parquet celebrated its 30th anniversary and got greener and greener: in the Greenpeace guide to choosing eco-conscious parquet it was awarded a wooden medal and was the Italian company that used the largest number of ecologically managed types of wood. CP Parquet also received approval by the German Institute for Building Technology DIBT, Berlin, due to its observance of stringent restrictions for emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC). For the second consecutive year it was selected by Best Up to represent one of the best examples of virtuous, sustainable design at the FuoriSalone of the Milan Furniture Fair.
