NovaBell’s founder was used to flying high. The passion with which he used to pilot his plane, circling the skies above Sassuolo, can still be seen in the eyes of the people who saw him, and in the tales told by those who came afterwards. But Silvio Bellei flew high because he knew how to keep his feet firmly on the ground: at the controls of an aircraft, emotion comes from reason and passion from knowledge of the facts.
Our company was founded in 1988 by Silvio Bellei, one of the founding fathers of the Italian Ceramics industry, a leading figure in the growth of the Sassuolo district since the early Fifties, with amazing successes behind him.
NovaBell has implemented its founder’s philosophy by adopting, from the outset, a system of values based on genuine results, customer satisfaction and continuous innovation.
We want to reinforce our international reputation as a reliable company, run by highly motivated people, able to come up with genuine solutions for customers, architects and consumers seeking surfaces of ceramic excellence.
At NovaBell we constantly strive to be reliable, innovative, Italian, genuine and understanding.
Silvio Bellei was sure this strategy would bring success, and he was right. Today NovaBell is a well established business, operating on five continents, producing ceramic tiles that achieve excellence in innovation, style and quality. We like to have our feet firmly on the ground, but we want to aim high, certain that every day we can do better, and more.
Almost 30 porcelain stoneware collections, 14 for outdoor use in the 20 mm thickness, 10 of white-body wall tiles, 1 exclusive universal decoration system in 20×20 size. Marble, stone, fabric, terracotta, wood, concrete, resin: all surface looks are represented in matt, glossy or anti-slip, polished or satin finish, for the maximum creative freedom in design.
Unbroken family management of enterprises is definitely a fundamental factor in the success of Italian manufacturing worldwide.
The Bellei family has been handling the governance of NovaBell since its foundation, with a system of values shared not only by staff but also by customers, suppliers and architects.
At NovaBell, our staff turnover is very low. People who start working for us rarely leave, because (we believe) they find the ideal conditions for professional growth in an environment that is good to work in. Highly motivated staff, who believe in what they are doing, are not just a figure of speech; they are the best service a company can offer its customers.
To be truly reliable you have to be far-sighted. At NovaBell, we design the future every day by investing almost 7% of our annual turnover in research, innovation, technology and services.
Innovating means having faith in the future and your ability to face it. So at NovaBell we are constantly seeking new design, application and production solutions that are the gradual evolution of tried and tested strategies, for guaranteed results in our product and service offering.
