Riva Group is Italy’s largest steel producer and the fifth biggest player in the European steel industry. Founded in 1954 by Emilio Riva, a pioneer in postwar Italian steel, the Group has specialised in the manufacturing of “long” products using electric arc steelworks, and in 60 years of business it has achieved an international leadership, expanding in the main European countries, thanks to high production standards and to a focused and steady strategy of growth and investments.
Led by Claudio Riva since June 2014, the Group is privately owned and employs about 5,000 people, with an increasingly qualified presence of high school and university graduates. It has 21 industrial plants located
in the following countries: France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Spain and Canada. The Group supplies different product areas, some of which - for example mechanics engineering, automotive and earth-moving
machines - demand especially high quality standards.
