CHT Srl: Experience, future and passion

Our story


The company was founded in the 50's as a producer of components for both kitchens and furniture in general. During the 70's the company have started the development of the laminate hot-bending technology, also known as “postforming” technology. At the end of the 80's, the company is the biggest Italian producer of components for the furniture industry, which was booming at the time. Unfortunately, during the next 10 years, the real estate field experienced a strong crisis, which affected also the furniture producers. In December 1999, the former shareholders of the company decided to dismiss it and sold it to the actual owners.
