8853 the number of GOLD in Italy Established over 60 years ago as Mario Villa Banco Metalli, thanks to the future oriented ideas and the skill of Mario Villa, founder of the company and the support and ability of his son Giorgio Villa, 8853 S.p.A. developed through the years into a true industrial reality.
Its activity goes from the trade of precious metals, especially gold and silver bars, to the production of dental alloys and semi-finished products made of gold, silver, platinum and palladium and their alloys, from recovery of precious metals wherever contained, to the production of equipment used by test laboratories such as platinum crucibles for which 8853 S.p.A. is leader on the Italian market.
Thanks to the development of a modern research center the company reached the “number one” position on the market also for products containing platinum and other metals of the group.
Since its establishment 8853 S.p.A. has further and further asserted itself in the various specialized sectors and, by acquiring important trademarks, had to combine the various entities which were so far part of the corporation into one omnicomprehensive reality under the name 8853 S.p.A.
The mission was to find a name able to immediately bring to mind the company as a whole and arouse the interest: 8853 is easy to recall and identify as it is none other than the telephone number of the company itself.
