The beginning

Our history, made of passion and constant commitment, began in 1975. A very young Lionello Bortolato opens his business in Massanzago – in the province of Padua – and specializes in the production of components for industrial racking, then concentrating on the production of metal racking accessories and more advanced storage systems, with a focus on metal profiles for walkways and mezzanines.

The exponential growth of the company requires continuous expansions, which are realized first with the transfer to the nearby municipality of Trebaseleghe and later then returning back to Massanzago. The actual factory consists of 8,000 square meters; in 1986 began the construction of the factory that nowadays represents the beating heart of our production of gratings and products for all needs.

As the company grows, professionals are qualified and machinery is constantly updated with the most advanced technologies.

Affirmation

Since 1987, our company has changed its name to ABA, but the quality remains the same. As a result of reliability, punctuality and speedy deliveries and product customization, the company takes a stronger position in the gratings and metal profiles fabrication market. We become the company of choice for prestigious customers, who are certain to find with us the custom-made solutions they need.

Being a partner to the biggest metal racking and logistic equipment companies is our highest prority.

In 2005, a change of cmpany name marked the birth of Abagrigliati and the handover to the second generation opened a new chapter in our entrepreneurial history, marked by innovation and gratings manufacturing development.

L’inizio

La nostra storia, fatta di passione e impegno costante, ha inizio nel 1975. Un giovanissimo Lionello Bortolato apre la sua attività a Massanzago – in provincia di Padova – e si specializza nella produzione di componenti per scaffalature industriali, concentrandosi poi nella realizzazione di accessori per scaffalature metalliche e sistemi di magazzinaggio più evoluti, con focus sui profilati metallici per passerelle e soppalchi.

La crescita esponenziale della nostra azienda richiede continui ampliamenti, che si realizzano con il trasferimento nel vicino comune di Trebaseleghe prima e con il ritorno a Massanzago poi. Qui nel 1986 prende il via la costruzione di un nuovo stabilimento che oggi conta 8.000 mq, cuore pulsante della nostra produzione di grigliati e prodotti per tutte le esigenze.

Mentre l’azienda si ingrandisce, i professionisti si qualificano e i macchinari sono costantemente aggiornati con le tecnologie più all’avanguardia.

L’affermazione

Dal 1987 la nostra realtà aziendale cambia nome in ABA ma la qualità resta quella di sempre: l’affidabilità, la puntualità e la rapidità nelle consegne, come anche la personalizzazione dei prodotti, ci consentono di affermarci ancora di più nella produzione di grigliati e profilati metallici. Per questo prestigiosi committenti scelgono di affidarci le loro richieste, con la certezza di poter trovare soluzioni ad hoc per qualunque necessità.

Nel nostro lavoro mettiamo al primo posto le partnership con le più grandi aziende di scaffalature metalliche e di attrezzature per la logistica. Nel 2005 un cambio societario segna la nascita di Abagrigliati e il passaggio di consegne alla seconda generazione apre un nuovo capitolo nella nostra storia imprenditoriale, all’insegna dell’innovazione e dello sviluppo nella realizzazione dei grigliati.

Certifications
Our primary goal is customer satisfaction, but also the satisfaction of our partners, through the continuous improvement of all business processes and the careful management of quality, health, safety and environmental issues. For this reason, in addition to the certifications listed above, we follow the UNI INAIL guidelines and the Corporate Administrative Responsibility Decree 231/2001.

CERTIFICATE OF CONFORMITY OF THE FACTORY PRODUCTION CONTROL
CODE OF ETHICS

In addition to quality, we have always paid the close attention to issues relating to functionality and safety. This is why we have started activities to implement the CE marking, i.e. the product certifications required by UNI EN 1090.

Anti-slip. For some products (steps and profiles) we have obtained specific certifications, according to DIN 51130 standards, for anti-slip characteristics. We can therefore supply the mentioned certificates for our products, by request: GB2; GE; GF; GP; RSC; ZA; ZB; ZB2; ZBC; ZFR; XB; XF; Rungs.

Anti-heel. The small sized holes prevent any heel from getting stuck on the tread. In the absence of regulatory decreee, it has become customary to define a hole with iameter of less than 15 mm as heel-resistant.

Anti-panic. The design of the perforated step creates a visual barrier, thus preventing the effect of dizziness in people accessing the staircase, especially when passing on stairs of considerable height.

Self-cleaning. In the perforated step, the configuration of the tread surface allows water, snow or detritus to drain away and, by preventing stagnation, the planking level remains clean.

Anti-sphere or anti-marble. Holes and slots, if present, cannot be crossed by a 2 cm diameter sphere, as per current regulations.

Working platforms and passageways. They meet the specific requirements as per UNI EN ISO 14122-2.

Quality, always

The constant search for quality allowed us to obtain the UNI EN 9001 Quality Certification back in 1996, which was then updated in 2018 to its latest version.

Thanks to our ability to design and implement flexible, functional and efficient solutions in the field of metal gratings and racking components, we now appear o the market with a distinctive identity and know-how that is strongly oriented towards customisation.

The continious pursuing of the best practices leads our work day after day, demonstrating Abagrigliati’s desire to always provide the best possible service.

This perspective and constant teamwork, have led our company to reach important goals, which have made us a company of choise in metal gratings production. The compliance with Regulation 305/2011 for the CE marking 1090-1 EXC3 for steel and aluminum profiles is an example of this, beside anti-slip certifications obtained from tests carried out at a certified laboratory, and the loading capacity tests carried out at the Experimental Laboratory for tests on construction materials at the University of Padua’s ICEA Department. Furthermore, the welding operations also follow the UNI EN 3834 standard.

For this reason, as well as producing gratings, metal profiles and industrial racking accessories, we collaborate with the most important plant engineering companies, supplying components for walkways, mezzanines, stairs and flooring. We follow with the same commitment and the same care in product customisation, both historical and more recent customers, sucha photovoltaic panel installers.

Our primary goal is customer satisfaction, but also the satisfaction of our partners, through the continuous improvement of all business processes and the careful management of quality, health, safety and environmental issues.
For this reason, in addition to the certifications listed above, we follow the UNI INAIL guidelines and the Corporate Administrative Responsibility Decree 231/2001.
