Armando Cimolai, founder of the Cimolai Group, passed away last night at the age of 94.
He was a pioneer of industry in Italy. In 1949, he created, in Pordenone, the company that in over 70 years of history has become a reference point for Made in Italy in the world, a globally recognised excellence in the production of complex steel structures.
Visionary and firmly anchored to family and work values, Armando Cimolai remained active until a few days ago with the company Armando Cimolai Centro Servizi.
He received numerous honours during his lifetime, including appointments as Cavaliere del Lavoro (1973), Ufficiale (1980), Commendatore (1984), Grande Ufficiale (2004), an honorary degree in Mechanical Engineering, awarded in 2005 by the University of Trieste, and the appointment as Cavaliere di Gran Croce conferred in 2020 by the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella.
Everyone in Cimolai Group join, with affection and gratitude, in the grief of his wife Albina, his sons Luigi and Roberto, and their families.
