The Company has been operating in Italy since 1947 when it started under the name of his founder Gino Benuzzi, who was a man of exceptional creativity and curiosity, then it changed in Giben.
After having manufactured tens of thousands of "traditional" woodworking machines, thanks to his talent and attention to changes of the marketplace with the coming of the large-size chipboards, in the '70s the intuition to build a machine which did not exist yet - the pressure beam panel saw with moving blade. Together with his wife Lidia and the son Piergiorgio already engaged in the company, he starts an era which will see an exponential growth of the company. At the first in Italy and immediately afterwards in Germany, France, United Kingdom, Eastern Europe, United States of America, Brazil, China, etc.
New and continuously evolving ideas arise from the growth of the exports. Purposely tailored solutions for the several types of materials, even taking into account different production volumes and the need for a higher automation; so many variables are introduced to the basic machine and the few models of the beginning become several ranges of product with tens and tens alternatives in just a few years to come.
It was a pioneering age - if we want to see it has such - as all was new and to be invented or fit to the several needs of customers working in quite diversified industries, from the woodworking to the plastic, non-ferrous materials and boards for the building industry.
Each time a challenge. Always won!
The son Piergiorgio took the lead of the company after the death of his father Gino, at the half of the '80 and together with his mother Lidia went into another development phase which fastly changed into a great growth and lasts for over a quarter of century, with the set up of sales branches in the most important countries and success on the international markets.
After the financial crisis started in the fall 2008, Piergiorgio has started another re-organization and, together with his daughter Federica, he has began a re-launching of the company involving a turnover in the staff; today Giben TECH, led by Piergiorgio Benuzzi, has a team of young and motivated men heading the most important company's activities. PGB, as he is called, still pays great emphasis to the renewal of the product following a path of ideas and research that always distinguished him from the loss of his father, continuing to generate and registered many important patents.
All over its life, as of the very 1st days Giben has determined the "bench mark" in the panel sizing industry, with a constant innovation which has always been "chased" by competitors even of a remarkable size with copies of the original one which, as it always occurs making "copies", will remain by the sideline of innovation only.
Giben TECH - All Italian manufactured - an iconic marque of unrivalled heritage has entered a third part of his history. With fresh investment, new men in charge and the strongest model line-up in the company's history we now look to an exciting future.
