GOOD-BYE AND THANK YOU, OUR PRESIDENT

On Wednesday, June 8th, at the age of 67, our Ivanno Ligabue passed away, after an illness that he faced with the determination and the spirit that have always been part of his character.
At the age of 20, at the beginning of the ’70s, he started up his enterprise establishing, together with Ermes Bigi, the company LB; thanks to his brilliant technical intuitions, along with a great passion, a tireless work and a natural commercial and relational talent, he was among the pioneers world-wide of the mechanical research applied to the ceramic production.
The success of the innovative technologies fruit of the research by LB, initially destined to the ceramic companies of the area of Sassuolo, pushed him to pass the national borders reaching with LB a position of world leadership in the production of technologies for porcelain tiles.
Naturally fond of public relations and sensitive to the needs of his business category, at the end of the ‘80s Ivanno Ligabue contributed to the foundation of ACIMAC (Italian association of manufacturers of machines for the ceramic industry), of which he was president from 1996 to 2000.
Person with great charisma and human and professional depth, Ivanno Ligabue became over the years an absolute reference within the international ceramic industry.
Ivanno Ligabue leaves his passion, his family and all his friends.
