Sandro Buzzi has crossed his final finish line

On September 4th, at the age of 90 years and 2 months, Sandro Buzzi concluded his earthly journey.
We like to remember with affection and emotion his role as an enthusiastic, optimistic, passionate and empathetic leader.


Sandro Buzzi had a long, beautiful, challenging and successful life. His story is inextricably linked to that of the company, since 1957, when as a young chemical engineer he was called by his father Luigi, to take care of the transition from natural to artificial cement. Over the years he had developed an almost unique knowledge and specialization of cement technique and technology. His passion for the product led him to extend his scope of knowledge and work to product application as well, especially the standards and quality of the nascent ready-mix concrete industry. Starting in the 1980s, he held various top executive roles within the group and, supported by brothers Franco and Enrico, was the architect of the main phases of company development (acquisition of Unicem in 1997 and Dyckerhoff in 2001).


Sandro Buzzi also had a great love for the sea, in particular offshore sailing. He participated in many competitions as a skipper, at all levels, all over the world. With his sailing hobby, he applied the same passion for technology, by embracing the use of the sextant and the development of innovations such as twin foils coupled with canting keel.


We will continue to follow his example of dedication and love for work, family and business.
