Valerio Zanaglio and his twenty years’ experience in designing metal recovery systems

Zato has been designing and manufacturing ferrous and nonferrous metal recycling machinery since 1999. A passion for new technologies has led the company’s founders, Valerio Zanaglio and Alessandra Bresciani, to create a wide range of Made in Italy products including hammer mills, industrial shredders and demolition shears for light and heavy metals, separation lines and scrap cleaning plants. The experience gained over the years has led the company to expand to the United States as well, thanks to the opening of a branch in the north of the country.

The cutting-edge technology that distinguishes Zato’s equipment is not only able to meet the customization needs of customers, but also satisfies the need to safeguard the planet by reducing the amount of scrap through low-emission and low-consumption machinery.

As a world leader in the steel and metal recycling industry, Zato has expanded its reach by selling its demolition equipment globally, including in the US. The company not only has a loyal customer base in the country, but it has also recently established a foreign facility, solidifying its commitment to serving its American clientele.
