Reaching the mark of our 70th year in business, despite the current period of uncertainty linked to the pandemic, cannot go unnoticed.
Our history began in close contact with the Murano district, with the supply of tools for glass working. In the years following its foundation, the company managed to carve out for itself a role as an innovative leader in the field of abrasive tools. For the first time in Italy, Sorma introduced the flexible diamond sheets used successfully in construction and for stone working. Year after year, our business has grown and we embarked on an adventure in the metal cutting industry with the partnership of large Japanese companies, such as Yamawa and Kyocera, with whom we continue to collaborate. Today Sorma operates in 57 countries and has over 100 employees including marketing and administrative staff, logistics personnel, and sales force.
The years that have passed from the foundation of Sorma to today have transformed it and have witnessed the constant growth of a company, which, in the wake of the centuries-old Venetian commercial tradition, started from the small borders of the Lagoon, to weave relationships with people and companies around the world. The homeland has always been a dynamic drive for Sorma towards continuous evolution and renewal, aiming to explore less travelled roads in prosperous times, as well as in periods marked by difficulty. The essence of the company, managed by the same family that originally founded it, has always guaranteed us a continuity and a transfer of experience from one generation to another, factor that has contributed to creating a microcosm of business tranquility and industriousness.
Over the seven decades in which so many things have changed, other elements have remained a cornerstone through generations: ethical values. Values like honesty, respect, and sustainability find concrete application in the work carried out on a daily basis by everyone in the company.
Over the years, we have always tried to build a lasting relationship with all our employees, based on transparency and shared responsibility. Thanks to this philosophy, the company has continued to deliver solid results over the years, even in difficult times, and this approach to our work has allowed us to benefit from the trust of the people with whom we interact on a daily basis.
In this sense, we believe that the best way to celebrate our first 70 years of business is by warmly thanking everyone who have contributed and those who contribute to Sorma’s growth: employees, partners, customers.
