Landi Renzo Spa is a world leader in LPG and CNG fuel supply systems and components for vehicles.
The company, based in Cavriago, Reggio Emilia in northern Italy, was founded by Renzo Landi in 1954 to manufacture mixing systems for all types of vehicles. The company’s growth in the automotive sector has been exponential ever since, and was not even halted by the premature death of its founder – the company passed to the control of his wife, Giovannina Domenichini, and son Stefano Landi, who took the reins in 1987. Continuous technical innovation led Landi Renzo to the top of the sector, with rapid internationalisation which means it now operates in over 50 countries, with 20 subsidiaries, exporting 80% of its production. Landi Renzo Spa has been listed on Borsa Italiana’s Star index since June 2007. The complexity of managing the company’s IT systems increased hand in hand with the growth of its business. In this context, virtualisation of the servers was the choice made by Landi Renzo’s ICT department, and in particular its Manager, Monica Giglioli, who told us: “A far-sighted strategy allowed us to handle the growth of the group and listing on the stock market without too many problems”.
