An inherited passion
Giancarlo, the second born, as an adolescent became attracted to his father’s job, who showed him the ropes and involved him further and further into the company until the son became the father’s right hand. With the unremitting support of mother Maria, the Tomelini family developed an increasingly efficient undertaking that attracted the interest of many South Tyrolean companies also thanks to its high moral values: ethical principles, respect, professionalism and reliability.
How it began
The company’s roots are solidly placed in the Tomelini family member’s indefatigable dedication to their work. Giovanni (the founder) with his wife Maria, both originally from Verona, moved to Bolzano in April 1956. With great humility as well as enthusiasm, they started their profession so as to give shape to their simple and yet highly considerate vision, that of doing honest work to bring up their two children.
The new Lamafer is born
Giancarlo’s innovative ideas spurred his father Gion to invest and firmly believe in the possibility of corporate growth that obviously required considerable investments. The difficulties to face were many, but the courage was stronger. The big turnabout occurred in 1996 when the new headquarters were built in Via G. Keplero. The newborn Lamafer di Tomelini G. managed the storage and disposal of waste and the sale of scrap in just 1,200 m2 of space.
Ideas for the future. Of the environment, too.
Giancarlo’a vision followed clear and simple paths that anticipated concepts that today are taken for granted: reduction of residual waste and environmental sustainability. Accurate sorting, correct waste/scrap disposal and identification of final destinations, together with the constant work of awareness-raising with initial waste producers, in those years became Lamafer’s main objectives.
New corporate structure
In 2008, Lamafer became a limited liability partnership. With the intuition and professional know-how acquired over the years, along with considerable entrepreneurial spirit and a deep sense of responsibility towards his employees, clients and suppliers, Giancarlo Tomelini led Lamafer and his team of 40 people by investing constantly in innovation, technologies, buildings, equipment and vehicles with the aim of achieving his mission, namely of working with passion and with the highest respect for his company’s social role.
A dream that lives on
To continue the family tradition, in February 2016 Giancarlo’s wife Erika joined the management team. Her role was to bring to the company her managerial experience so as to consolidate and strengthen the internal organization. In December 2019, “Great Grandpa Gion” left us at the age of 96 after living a life dedicated to his work and his family - an extended family that included all of the Lamafer employees who were the first supporters of the project with their daily work and unremitting commitment. Today, Lamafer carries on the family legacy by running its 3 production facilities with dedication, professionalism and passion and by proving itself to be an acclaimed consultant and broker in its field.
