Giuga company, was established in November 1978, mainly dealing with public works. When he was just 20, the owner, Corrado, was already registered in the national register of builders and already involved in the realization of public works at a regional level.
During the works of redevelopment of the Ispica Quarry, he had great difficulty finding stone material (Modica stone specifically) for the realization of the work.
At that moment, the spark that led to the construction of the plant for the processing of Val di Noto limestone in Contrada Scardina in Rosolini, was ignited in him.
In 2002, the Giuga Company, stimulated by UNESCO’s decision to declare the Val di Noto a World Heritage Site, took up the challenge and built another plant in the industrial area of Ragusa, thus establishing itself as a leading company in stone processing in the provinces of Ragusa and Syracuse.
In order to remain eco-friendly and to respect the environment and with a greener concept of work, the company set up a recycling plant for inert waste and “zero waste” production began. This was recognised and appreciated by the certification bodies, which issued the company the quality certification for manufacturing processes ISO 14001 and ISO 9000.
In December 2016, after 38 years of business, the owner’s son, Ignazio, a civil engineer, joined the company and helped to ensure the continuity of the family business across generations. This gave a new impetus to the company, introducing new management and production methods.
