Our company’s long history starts in 1938 in Sassuolo when the Gambigliani Zoccoli family acquired a part of the company from the Siliprandi family. Working alongside an engineer, Mr Padoa, The Gambigliani Zoccoly family developed the first porcelain stoneware production with innovative tunnel ovens that replaced the old Hoffmann furnaces.
During the sixties, SAIME moved from the centre of Sassuolo to Maranello, where we are still located. As the years passed, our company went through a lot of changes. In 1987, SAIME was acquired by the Riwal group, becoming the largest plant in the district only to become a part of the Casalgrande Padana group in 2007, alongside the entire Riwal group.
After investing nearly 50 million euros over ten years, we completed the renovations of our facilities in 2017, which also includes an innovative production line for ceramic panels.
Today, we are one of the leading plants of the Casalgrande Padana group, and we specialise in large size tiles. By investing in our future, SAIME plans to further expand our brand by offering traditional, as well as the most innovative materials on the market.
To make sure that our tiles can complement both the interior and the exterior of even our most demanding customers, we have designed a wide collection of different tile types. Therefore, to make the whole process a lot more convenient and faster, we split our tiles into different categories, and you can browse them by their design or by the material.
For many, marble has always been the material that defined elegance and luxury. If you would like a gorgeous kitchen, a hallway or mesmerising bathroom, you can select between two different options presented to you in our catalogue. Both Cave and Cremo are unique in their own way. While the Cremo collection is available only in natural/lappato surface and a 30x60 format, Cave comes in more than a dozen formats and several beautiful finishes. Moreover, it is also available in more than 20 different colours.
If you are the type that loves the gentle touch of wood as you walk barefoot, we have prepared five different design collections, such as Alpi, Majestic, Natif Light, Painted, and Timber. Depending on your preference regarding the type, design, and surface, you will be able to choose between numerous formats. Additionally, we have also prepared a vast array of different colours for each of the collections to ensure the maximum level of customisation until everything is according to your taste, as well as your needs.
Concrete & Terracota
Concrete and terracotta contribute the most to our collection as there are more than 16 different designs to choose from. While a lot of people automatically think of outdoor tiles when they hear of concrete, using them indoors is not unheard of. As a matter of fact, it is just as great as if the tiles were in open space, and if you need a bit more convincing, you can browse through our gallery and explore Valencia, Salento, Urbandeck, Neutra, and Logic, just to name a few. As is the case with every product in our collection, you will have plenty of different intricate designs, sizes, and colours to choose from.
The last material in our collection are tiles made of stone. Designed for any environment, Artica, Boulevard, Volcano, Phoenix, Luserna, Morestone Kaleido and Cosmos are there to compliment your home. Cut in different sizes using the cutting-edge technology, each of the tile collection is sensational to look at and is guaranteed to bring something new to any area you decide to have it installed in.
