Zordan Srl SB is the point of reference for luxury brands for the design and creation of attractive and sustainable retail spaces. The brand, which started in Valdagno in 1965, owes its success to an effective business model based not only on the rigorous application of its technical skills but also on the central role of people in its company culture, fostering the development of the local community through educational and aesthetic projects. Sustainability has always been a fundamental value for Zordan; with the B Corp certification in 2016 we became one of the first companies in Italy to support the movement, and the first to achieve certification at a global level in the sector of shopfitting and designer furniture. The company employs 55 people in Valdagno and 30 in Holland MI USA with a consolidated turnover of approximately €22 mln. The company is already working to bring sustainability to the retail sector, working alongside industrial luxury brands to reduce the impact of their distribution chain, and is planning to enter other sectors with the same purpose.
