Poggesi USA is a long-time leader in the shading industry due to its history of providing products that excel in durability and quality by using the finest materials available in state-of-the-art facilities.
Before ascending to be world leader in umbrellas, Poggesi Italy began in 1964, at a time when traditional artisans with an entrepreneurial spirit saw an opportunity to capitalize on the development of the Italian outdoor marketplace as a center of commerce. The focus then—and now—has always been the meticulous craftsmanship of the product. Each piece created is a reflection of the care and creativity of the artist tasked with designing the outdoor furniture product. In the tradition of Italian artisans, each model is inspired by nature, art and modern functionality that best serves the client. From a storied past in the market stalls of Italy, to the tutelage of industry experts, Poggesi USA is poised to provide hotels, restaurants, and private residences with outdoor furnishings unlike any other. Engineers, artisans and top-of-the-line manufacturers all stand ready to create unique designs that perfectly compliment a soothing and relaxing morning or evening shaded from the elements. Clients have consistently raved about our units across North and South America, including luxury ocean-front sidewalk applications and several rooftop patios and gardens. Now it is your turn. Let us show you why we are the leaders in “The Art of Creating Shade.”
Based in the heart of Tuscany, home of art, style and fashion, Poggesi always strives to develop beautiful, unique, and powerful designs combined with elegant colors. Poggesi’s Italian flare is evident in all umbrellas, which at first sight may seem out of the ordinary but are then appreciated and acknowledged as haute couture, in the same way as clothes fashion. Every Poggesi creation immediately expresses precise style parameters and often sets an example for new industry trends.
In April 2010 Ombrellificio Poggesi certified the quality of its internal production process by obtaining the TÜV trademark after a series of complex tests which covered all areas of the industrial process from the design to the production phase. Poggesi had no doubt about its production and organizational capabilities, nevertheless, it decided to undergo the tests of one of the most important European quality organizations in order to provide its clients with further proof of its great attention to product quality at every level of the production process. This is yet another way in which Poggesi seeks to satisfy its customers.
Poggesi’s latest innovative technology has often led to the creation of brand new projects requiring national and international protection for the invention. An imposing series of patents protects individual models, their function, their more important elements, rendering most Poggesi products are unique and impossible to duplicate. The latest patent came from a novel idea for an umbrella opened and closed with a mere touch and a push, leaving the rest to a complex series of springs. At the advanced design testing stage for umbrella automation, Poggesi patented a remote control model with motorized opening system, but proper research still calls for further in-depth study.
