PIOL The Manuli Family Group of Companies dates back to 1935, when Dardanio Manuli established a business in Milan, Italy producing rubber tires, inner tubes, hoses, electrical tapes, and power cables. The early years of that business laid the foundations for what is today a group of leading global industrial businesses, including Manuli Stretch and Manuli Rubber Industries. Today, Manuli Stretch is owned by Dardanio Manuli’s son, Dr. Sandro Manuli.
In the decades following its inception, the Manuli family business expanded to encompass a number of successful companies throughout Italy with diverse product offerings:
