GIORGIO TESI GROUP
The Giorgio Tesi Group is a leading European plant nursery specialist for ornamental plants and cultivated spaces. As well as their headquarters in Pistoia – the European plant nursey capital – the Giorgio Tesi Group also has four branches located in Grosseto, Orbetello (GR), Piadena (CR) and San Benedetto del Tronto (AP). The group produces all the plant species and varieties required by European and non-European markets from young plants to large species, from geometric forms to trees for cities and avenues, plants for garden centres and the large scale retail network, for all climate zones and the various types of public and private gardens.
It is a leader in environmental and quality certifications and has recently obtained Class A in MPS certification, the only European company to have been awarded EMAS certification which confirms the company’s great importance and virtuosity in terms of quality and environmental respect. The Giorgio Tesi Group is official green space partner to the Florence and Forte dei Marmi town councils and has been Italian Sponsor and official green partner in the 2013 Cycling World Championships and main sponsor to Pistoia Basket which is now in the top Italian basketball league championship. It supplies AC Milan’s prestigious Milanello sports centre and is official partner for all the other initiatives whenever the ‘red and black’ football club is looking for a touch of nature.
The company has set up its own publishing house – Giorgio Tesi Editrice – in order to create its own NATURART magazine, a bilingual magazine which comes out four times a year and exports the beauties and culture of Pistoia and Tuscany as a whole in Italy and the whole world. The magazine is online too on www.naturartpistoia.it and its 11,000 printed copies are sent out to 40 countries worldwide to client companies and other potential clients.
There are thus thousands of sector operators from countries all over the world who can find out about the special features and beauties of the area – artistic, cultural, manufacturing, tourist and food and wine. With this project the Giorgio Tesi Group has become an ambassador for the beauties and culture of the Pistoia area and for Tuscany as a whole the world over and added its own contribution to the area’s marketing and tourism initiatives.
