We are an Italian company and world leader in the production and distribution of manufactured and forged products made of wrought iron.
Considered the result of a genuine art form, our products are made thanks to the use of specialized professionals who design all the details of each creation with passion and dedication.
Our wrought iron is distributed in 136 countries throughout world and has been chosen to protect and decorate some of the most important and complex buildings in the world such as the Palace of Justice in Rome, the Terenure park in Dublin, Eurodisney and many other prestigious villas and residences from Hollywood to Saint Petersburg, London and Saint Tropez.
The history of the company started 40 years ago, in 1971, when the Architect Bruno Gonzato started a company to produce amphibious means with the name Ind.i.a. or Industria Italiana Anfibi (Italian Amphibian Industry).
Architect Bruno Gozanto self-financed his projects by producing and selling wrought iron scrolls, which is a very common product in Vicenza. He soon became aware that with his instinct for art and the passion for wrought iron he was able to invest in a new market.
Soon the company grew in size and experience, to become a group with 16 branches that produces and distributes wrought iron and steel finished products and forgings globally through three major brands: Ind.i.a, Il Grande Fabbro and Arteferro Inox.
But the expansion did not affect the love for the tradition that characterized this ancient art, so much so that the Architect Gonzato is considered more of a great craftsman than an industrialist.
To this day he still conducts his business with innovation and research in design, an activity in which he is helped by his wife Stefania, who is also an Architect and Designer; his children Francesca, Matteo, Davide, Dario and his son-in-law Andrea.
Architect Bruno Gonzato's will to raise his children in management roles shows his foresight in establishing a firm foundation for the future that ensures continuity of the company philosophy and the quality guaranteed by the Ind.i.a. label.
The Philosophy: Protection and Beauty
The art form represented by wrought iron is fed by two unavoidable human needs: protection and beauty.
That is why our company unites tradition, which is the artisan's workmanship of the wrought iron with a constant quest for technical and aesthetic innovations. From the use of the latest technology to the choice of materials, everyone in the company contributes to the creation of cutting-edge products that are the expression of a culture that Ind.i.a. promotes and disseminates worldwide.
We are able to do so by working with customers, employees, and suppliers on a one on one basis. Ind.i.a. also keeps at the forefront of our community and environment in which we operate striving to implement continuous improvements through the control of business processes as we comply with the laws that govern each sector.
Thanks to all of this, our company can provide the client high-quality products and services guaranteeing a unique and controlled quality standard.
At the same time, we care about the effects that our company has towards the environment around us, pushing us to implement policies of environmental sustainability and environmental impact.
This commitment supports the principles of protection and beauty that characterize the spirit of our products. These principles stem from the belief that there can be nothing more beautiful in our world and protecting it is a major concern for all.
