OVER ITS 70 YEARS OF HISTORY

EMU Group S.p.A.

Everlasting values

A 70-year journey of Innovation, Quality, Sustainability and an International Approach. EMU, a pioneer in the technical know-how for working with and protecting metal, manufactures outdoor furnishings for the home and for contract projects, to suit different styles and create ideal, authentic environments to enjoy an Italian garden and relax in comfort surrounded by friends. EMU’s revolutionary drive and intuition has made us one of the first companies to set up a series of collaborations with the most renowned Italian and international designers and architects, aiming to introduce “design” into the outdoor sector. With roots deeply embedded in the production philosophy of 100% Made in Italy and always true to the culture of our surrounding area, our company can now be found on the international market with a distribution network covering over 85 countries. We have continually exchanged experiences and ideas and, supported by a global sales network we have made ethical, inclusive, sustainable choices, which include a good ratio of women employees within the company. As a result, we have developed an international mindset, which focuses not merely on individual products, but also on complete furnishing solutions. Encouraged by our heritage, we are working to seize the future opportunities, always inspired by the Italian culture of outdoor living.

Know-how and technology

EMU is taking gigantic steps forward every day in its constant research in technology and style. By innovatively mixing materials and constantly investing in advanced technology and automation, such as welding and finishing platforms, it blends tradition and evolution into a new way of living. This ambitious vision is revealed inside the Design&Simulation Centre, our research centre, which aims to boost development in the design department, where technicians and designers can find inspiration for increasingly advanced processes and products. The company has set its heart on future expansion, which relies on a worthwhile exchange of ideas with talented young people, enabled by working very closely with national and international universities and design centres.

Mission

The company’s mission is to bring the Italian culture of open-air living to the world, producing signature furniture that combines tradition, technological innovation and quality, for private and public settings. To create unique products that last in time, thanks to their balanced combination of aesthetic appeal and functionality, technological development, manufacturing quality and respect for the environment.

Our all-italian quality

Expect the highest quality, seek detailed perfection and keep an innovative mentality: these have always been EMU’s guidelines. Our company designs, implements and controls all the production phases in our Marsciano plant in the heart of Umbria and closely monitors all the processing steps on our various suppliers’ premises. We work together in a close-knit network according to the latest models of production organisation. Strict monitoring, from tests during the product design stages and work on cataphoresis and painting processes, to the approval of the end product. The unquestionable quality of our products is the result of a perfect blend between technology and human resources, a truly priceless heritage founded on the passion and knowledge of our people. This knowledge, together with our company’s historic know-how of working with metal, guarantees a long product life cycle and maximum all-weather resistance. This is how the timeless, iconic, ever present designs are created for our gardens. EMU welcomes us in the open-air with authentic, Made in Italy comfort, so we can relax and get together with our friends and family to share the art of enjoying the garden Italian style.

Italian green heart of sustainability

We began and have grown surrounded by nature and our concern and love for the environment is in our DNA. We have always cared for our area: Umbria, Italy’s Green Heart. Our love for our land and devotion to our company are values we have handed down from generation to generation, from father to son from the very beginning. This natural comradeship has enabled us to preserve and perfect our craft. We manufacture tough products in time-honoured styles, which are the essence to guarantee sustainability. This is why EMU focuses on the entire product life cycle within the environment, ranging from using 100% recyclable and non combustible materials, such as steel and aluminium, to recycling and minimising waste. Those collections containing wooden parts are made of 100% FSC teak, coming from responsibly managed forests, according to rigourous environmental, social and economic standars. EMU guarantees the environmental compatibility of our entire product range by implementing all processes in our own plants. Our company is also committed to constantly reducing its use of plastics by using smaller, recyclable cardboard packaginag. EMU is developing, by 2023, a 1 megawatt photovoltaic system, with the aim of powering the company with Green energy.
