In the 1980s, the third generation joined the company: Mauro, Irene, Susanna and Corinna take the reins of the company.
Collaborations with large private customers began and, at the same time, a process of external growth was started through the acquisition of businesses or branches of businesses of various competitors, some of them major ones. Within a few years, Gemmo became to all intents and purposes a group.
The 1990s and 2000s were characterised by the introduction of new management skills and an extensive overhaul of the organisation, which had to be able to respond to the challenges of an increasingly complex and growing business.
These decades witnessed the evolution of Gemmo’s role in several markets, in which it transformed from being a simple systems supplier to an operator. The company adopts new development models such as the Public Private Partnership (PPP) with its main instrument, Project financing, and acquires an undisputed leadership in the Cultural Heritage sector.
