The Uliveto plant was constructed in 1987 and initially covered an area of 8,000 square meters which housed the first 1.5 litre PET bottling line. In 1992, the facility was expanded by another 18,000 square meters. In 1996, two new blowers and a new PET 1.5 litre bottling line were installed, with a production capacity of 36,000 bt/hour. A new 1.5 litre PET line with the same production capacity was added in 1998. Finally, the warehouse was expanded to cover a total area of 30,000 square meters in 2002.
The Rocchetta plant was constructed in 1995 in a 10,000 square meter area to house the first blower and bottling line (36,000 bt/hour). In 1996, the area was expanded by 15,000 square meters and a second bottling line was installed. The third line arrived in 1998 and the plant grew to 28,000 square meters. A fourth PET line and an aseptic packaging line for the Elisir di Rocchetta range of beverages were added in 1999. The fifth PET bottling line was installed in 2002. In 2007 a new glass bottling line was installed, dedicated to the production of a full range of glass products for Cogedi’s 40 export markets.
Despite the almost total saturation of the Italian mineral water market, where consumption is approximately 190/lit/per person, CoGeDi’s sales from 1994 to date have increased by 295%. Furthermore, CoGeDi has consistently increased its export turnover. The results achieved were a direct consequence of the positive “made in Italy” image and the quality and originality of its own products. CoGeDi currently exports to approximately 40 countries and every continent.
