It all started 25 years ago, in September 1994, thanks to Andrea Antonini’s passion for carpentry and agriculture, which I immediately started to collaborate with important companies in the sector.
In 2002, Due A opted to specialize and make the livestock industry its core focus, producing over 150 complete calf facilities for white meat. This transition led to significant growth across the whole company, which began to concentrate its efforts on livestock and animal welfare, with a particularly impassioned focus on the cattle industry, later followed by sheep and goats. Thus, the company began meticulously developing and designing all the parts for its own equipment, producing and pre-assembling everything in-house.
The Antonini brothers’ passion led them to establish an ever-closer dialogue with the farmers, thus gaining insight into their real needs and implementing services developed specifically for the industry. This resulted in the new range of fabric shelters and agricultural hoop buildings, a structure designed to serve as forage storage or an equipment shed.
The success of the hay storage hoop shelters, with all their countless uses, paved the way for the design and manufacture of new models in thousands of sizes, eventually seeing the installation of over 800 structures a year. This spawned the idea of developing it further and transforming it into a shelter specially designed for housing cattle, sheep and goats, making it an excellent alternative to the traditional shed.
The challenge was to provide the customer with a number of alternatives when setting up a new livestock facility, in addition to providing advice on interior stock flow and layout, which are key to the solution’s long-term effectiveness.
Today, Due A is expanding its business and manufacturing in line with its mission of growing, improving and innovating its products.
