The Tre Spade story is not your usual company story. Sure, in every industrial enterprise, stories of men and machines, the strength of inventions and the ability "to do" are all intertwined. But, for many reasons, that which encompasses our brand is something different.
Its origins, above all, were related to an intense and, at the time, still unknown fragrance. The three crossing swords ("Tre Spade"), in fact, appeared in 1894 on the body of one of the first Italian coffee grinders, born together with the espresso trend that in those years had been growing among the most chic tastes. From macinelli (mills) to pepper mills, it was a short step: at the beginning of last century, Tre Spade designed the mechanism that is still today unsurpassed for functionality, precision and reliability.
In those same years, the first automobiles were starting to travel around the big cities: the company soon realized the capacity of this new motorized revolution, and since 1906, our family business has become a pioneer in the field of auto mechanics. From then on, year after year, tools were born for agricultural processing and forged steel components, representing one of our company's souls.
Because another thing that makes us original is this idea of ours to combine a highly industrial vocation, forged metal, and a genuine love for good things. In addition to automotive experimentation, over the years followed continued innovation in the field of kitchen tools: first meat mincers, then tomato squeezers and then sausage fillers. Three families of product which still today attest to our attention to those working in the kitchen.
Naturally, over time, technology has evolved: we have added electrical machines to our lines of manual machines, and the range has gradually expanded and diversified to meet the expectations of increasingly demanding customers. Even our perspective has changed: today we are one of the world reference points in the field of kitchen machines, a role that encourages us to renew ourselves each day, starting with our products. Just take a look at Takaje, our vacuum sealing system, to understand how much we like new challenges.
The most important aspect of all, however, continues to be our intention to combine industrial quality, patiently built over the years, exploring different directions every day, dedicating new tools, ideas and solutions to the Italian tradition of taste.
Quality in what we create is the main objective of our work. Even more: it is a true, little obsession of ours. Taking care of every detail is the only way we know how to work, because experience has taught us that, at the end of the day, things done well are those that remain. The beautiful thing is that we are not alone in this daily search for quality. We have our constantly updated and renewed production machines, which allow us to cling to technological evolution. We have software and calculation instruments, without which we could not be as quick or precise. We have our sales network, in constant contact with this rapidly changing market.
But, above all, we have our customers. And it's thanks to them, their opinions and the trust they have always placed in us, that we are able to improve our products and learn to travel new roads, day after day. With commitment and imagination.
