Cooperativa Operai Cavatori del Botticino

a story over 80 years

The Cooperativa Operai Cavatori del Botticino was founded on the 27 October 1932 when, under a contract clause, the Botticino council, (monopoly holders of the quarries), entrusted nine working members resident in the village of Botticino with a small extraction area.

Fifty years later, in 1982, with the acquisition of 3 other quarry units, the Cooperative grew to become a predominant presence in the Province of Brescia.

From that point on, the cooperative’s growth continued with the building of a headquarters and new processing facilities for slabs and tiles, thus developing into a full-production set up covering the entire process from excavation right up to the finished product.
