Monterosa Zelandi S.r.l. was started on the 18th of June 1969 as a family business named ‘Monterosa di Zelandi Aurelio’. Deep knowledge and skills in the field have increased during the years – to design and manufacture perfect wicks requires application, experience and ability. More and more wick types have been introduced ever since: different ranges, according to different varieties of candles. In 2002 the company was awarded ‘Piemonte Eccellenza Artigiana’ in the textile industry, which is an official recognition of high quality work in the field.
In the year 2006, Monterosa has been included in the restricted list of RAL accredited suppliers, meeting the high standars required (RAL European Quality Mark candles – http://www.kerzenguete.com/ ). Throughout the years, more and more product ranges have been added and what the company supplies nowadays also includes candle industry accessories, such as tealight cups, sustainers, candle fragrances to IFRA standards and more, reaching final customers as well now, with some brand new candle-related home design accessories.
The company became ‘Monterosa Zelandi S.r.l.’ in 2007, from a small business to a manufacturing company, still grounded on traditional handicraft values, exporting what we call ‘flame hearts’ to different parts of the world.
