The Mauro Saviola Group began
At the end of the nineties, the company conglomerate led by Mauro began to be a group with a capital “G”, as the Mauro Saviola became a de facto group, the Gruppo Mauro Saviola. The acquisition of Nuova Rivart in Radicofani, specialised in the processing of chestnut wood, allows the manufacturing of MDF panels and processing of tannin, essential to the tanning industry. Sitapan and Sitech came into being, and they specialised in manufacturing semi-finished products for furniture, edges and surfaces, making their way into the factories of the main Italian players. Also in 1997, 100% production of Ecological Panels was achieved. From this moment on no tree would ever be felled for the production of a Saviola panel.
