S.A.P.A.B.A. (Società Anonima Prodotti Asfaltico Bitaminosi Affini) was founded near to the Reno river at the end of the 1920’s, and has always occupied the position of the principal manufacturer of gravel and related products on the Bolognese market.

The S.A.P.A.B.A men have always been outstanding for their hard work, sweat and labour, even in difficult times such as the economic crisis of 1929 or the heavy bombing of the industrial production unit in Via Pila (Pontecchio Marconi) during the Second World War.

Over the decades, numerous work sites and plants have been set up in different locations in the province of Bologna, for the production of aggregates. One of these was the original production site in Casalecchio di Reno in Via Ronzani, which was closed down in 2011; also the plant in San Martino in Pedriolo and Casteldebole; and not least, the current production plant in Via Pila in Pontecchio Marconi, opened half way through the 1950’s.

In almost 90 years of experience, S.A.P.A.B.A. has come a long way, consolidating its position, carried forwards by an efficient and convincing combination of human resources and operative skills.
