Twenty years ago, Caleffi S.p.A., headquartered in Fontaneto d'Agogna, Italy, began an exciting adventure, opening its North American headquarters in Franklin, Wisconsin. The company soon established wide acceptance of its high-quality products in the U.S. and Canadian plumbing and hydronic marketplaces. With investment in people, innovative products, creative branding and state-of-the-art facilities, the company has enjoyed increasing demand and rapid growth. To honor this milestone, Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson proclaimed May 19, 2022, to be Caleffi Day throughout the City of Milwaukee.
In 2007 Caleffi North America built a new 35,000 square foot facility in the Menomonee Valley to house its main offices, technical laboratory, warehousing and assembly operations. Twelve years later, an additional 8,300 square feet was added to the building, doubling the office space and assembly area. This latest expansion was awarded Top Projects of 2020 by The Daily Reporter, a news source for commercial construction projects in Wisconsin. The creation of appealing workspaces with the ability to easily transform a space into a training venue is a testimony to Caleffi’s commitment to industry education including complimentary resources such as hybrid training opportunities, the popular idronics journal series, and Coffee with Caleffi — a first of its kind webinar series.
“Caleffi’s core values remain steadfast: commitment, passion, innovation and love for the local community," said Caleffi North America CEO Mark Olson. "We will leverage our reputation built these first 20 years to continue expanding our family of customers and employees.”
