Past and present

1932: Turin. “Società Idrotermica Razionale Industrie Affini S.I.R.I.A. spa” is founded. The company manufactures and installs heating and cooling systems and large thermal plants for buildings. 1933: S.I.R.I.A. S.p.A. becomes a member of the Industrial Union of Turin and of AMMA “Association of Metal and Mechanical Industries” to which it is still associated today. After WWII the company activity is wider and focalizes on the water and plant sectors and ends up offering turnkey systems in the 60’s. 1970: thanks to the favourable geographical position of the production plant at Brusasco, at the crossroads of the provinces of Torino, Asti and Alessandria, the production development can finally focalize on the main North Italian water utilities. 1980: the Ferrero Family purchases the Company and changes its name into Nova Siria S.r.l. The new site for the company is Bibiana, at the mouth of the Pellice Valley. 2006: two new plants are acquired at Roletto, a town between Pinerolo and Torino. The new facilities include areas dedicated to production and specific tests, with lifting equipment suitable for handling large-sized parts. During 2006, the Italian sales network is completely re-organised through activation of new Agencies, in particular in the South of Italy. In 2006 a new company, CF Rappresentanze Industriali snc, is added to the Nova Siria as commercial partner for management of the Italian sales network alongside the Agencies and in synergy with Nova Siria Italian sales management. 2009:  with the the setting up of CF International srl. which is aimed at the Multiutilities, construction and maintenance companies of water-gas distribution networks, retailers and engineers. The company soon becomes the reference point for a wide range of high quality products and solutions which are complementary to Nova Siria product range. CF International closed in 2014 and its products are now promote and sell by Nova Siria throught the C.F. Line. 2009 – 2014: important investments to speed up the internationalization process, through the participation in various Internati onal Exhibitons of the sector and the activation of new distributors in all the continents. 2015: Nova Siria became part of the Austrian group Hawle, one of the international leaders in quality and innovation of valves and pipe connection. Aldo Ferrero, surveyor, born in 1925, after a thirty-year experience accused as a plant manager in several important mechanical companies in Turin area, founded Nova Siria in 1979 together with his sons Luigi and Mario. Technical supervisor of the company, he deals with R&D and new manufacturing process technologies. During the Nineties ha was named “Knight of the Italian Republic” and in 2013 he received the “Loyality Award to Work and Economic Progress” issued by the Chamber of Commerce of Turin. In 2020 another significant step has been taken in the NOVA SIRIA continuity project, initiated by its founder, land surveyor Aldo Ferrero in the 80s. After being run for almost 40 years by the second generation, with his sons Luigi and Mario, as of January 2020, the baton has passed to Marco Ferrero (now Managing Director) and Francesco Ferrero (now Managing Director), sons of Luigi and Mario respectively and representatives of the third generation. A generational handover in full compliance with continuity of values, aimed at preserving the principles of excellence, quality, and social responsibility which have been the pillars of Nova Siria since the year it was set up. These values continue to be important also after the entry of Nova Siria in the Hawle Austria Group in 2015. Marco and Francesco Ferrero have grown professionally in the company, alongside founder Aldo Ferrero and, in recent years, their respective fathers, Luigi and Mario, carrying on traditional values and combining them with increasing dynamism. Alongside Marco and Francesco, an operational role is played by Stefania and Ilaria, the first daughter of Luigi and the second of Mario, who deal respectively with marketing, communication and export, within the company:“Our grandfather, Aldo, and our fathers, Luigi and Mario, taught us that work, if based on competence and quality, can promote both personal development as well as progress and well-being for all employees and collaborators,” stated the Ferrero cousins in unison. Luigi and Mario Ferrero’s presence in the company as consultants is a further cornerstone, thus guaranteeing the continuity of the company and the commitment towards its employees, collaborators, customers and suppliers.

  • 1) PURPOSE The purpose of this document is to describe and focus on the commitments which this Company has made in order to inform and involve the Personnel in the process for the development of the actions considered to be key for achieving these commitments and to monitor and achieve continuous improvement and system effectiveness.
  • 2) PREMISE The Quality and Environment management systems may assist the organisations in increasing customer satisfaction and in directing and maintaining the company activities within an improvement process which aims at environmental sustainability. Customers require products with features and characteristics which can meet their needs and expectations. These needs and expectations are expressed in product specifications which, overall, make up the so-called “customer requirements”. The customer requirements may be specified contractually by the customers themselves, but may also be established by the organisation itself; in both cases, the customer determines the acceptability of the product. It is often modified by the pressure of the competitors and by technical progress and this leads our organisation to analyse the customer requirements and to keep the processes under control. The awareness of the impelling need to return to short-term and long-term environmental sustainability has led Management to decide to set up an Environmental Management System in order to achieve this goal.

Following the analysis carried out by Management Review, the results of the internal audits and data analysis (deliveries, customer claims, corrective action), Management has been able to identify the maintenance of the company standards specified in the point below, identifying them as the starting point for continuous improvement.

  • 3) “COMPANY STANDARD” QUALITY POLICY – Our Company considers quality management and maintenance and improvement, when possible, of the quality standards for the achievement and consolidation of the market objectives to be key, in order to improve the level of satisfaction of the needs and expectations of the significant Interested Parties (Customers, Owners, Employees, Suppliers, External parties of various kinds) and, in general, for a positive development of the company “system” overall.

To this end, the following elements / commitments are considered to be “COMPANY STANDARDS” and represent the essential framework of the entire quality system:

  • Constant monitoring of the internal and external context in which the Company operates.
  • Thorough assessment of the risks and opportunities of its processes.
  • Thorough analysis of the technical – commercial needs of the customers in view of the consolidation and improvement over time of that partnership.
  • Compliance with the quality standards established in advance and, at the same time, improving them in line with the needs of the customers, in terms of cost, reliability and availability.
  • Providing the customers with the documentation require for immediate and full usage of the product or service supplied.

  • Ensuring that the products and services supplied comply with the safety requirements and the normalisation and testing protocols, the legal specifications and national and international standards and regulations.
  • Involving the suppliers as an integral part of the Company in achieving the standards set, making them aware and responsible with a view to providing customers with a full all-encompassing guarantee.
  • Making all company functions and parties responsible in terms of the correct and responsible execution of their work.
  • Improving and rationalising the company informational system and information flows, with a view to fully understanding the requirements relating to the commitments made, making it possible to activate corrective action for or modification of requirements which are not valid or not possible.
  • 4) ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY – Our Company considers the process of inevitable transformation towards a situation of ever-increasingly complete sustainability of its activities to be key. The requirements Management refers to are, above all, clearly, the requirements laid out in the relevant Environmental standards and regulations and, then, the objectives of environmental maintenance and improvement which the company has, and will continue to, set itself. This also has the aim of satisfying the needs and expectations of the to improve the level of satisfaction of the needs and expectations of the significant Interested Parties (Customers, Owners, Employees, Suppliers, Society understood as public bodies and external parties of various kinds) and, in general, for a positive development of the company “system” overall.

Nova Siria S.r.l.

The CEO – Francesco Ferrero

Engineering

Nova Siria uses design systems with “solid modeling 3D” (Solidworks® – Dassault Systemes) techniques. They allow the management of specific structural calculations of “Stress Analysis” relative to materials resistance, external and internal stresses such as loads and pressures, through simulation of mechanical and hydraulic stresses in operating conditions. Design rules provide the maximum quality grade for each component, which is achieved through the use of materials which comply with National and International standards.

Tests

The design stage and 3D simulation is followed by a check of technical performance characteristics and actual in-house testing of prototypes.  In order to always assure the best reliability of production, Nova Siria can perform the hydraulic seal tests under mechanical stresses according to the International standards or, upon request, according to the specific requests of the Customer.

Research & Development

Nova Siria makes considerable investments in the analysis of new product technologies and is available to examine any request of the Customer which find the application in their operation areas, performing feasibility studies and overseeing the design process and experimentation.
