Headquarters in the industrial heart of Europe
Clay Paky's headquarters are located in central-northern Italy, in one of the nerve centres of the European industrial system, in the heart of a highly industrialized area, with access to all road and air links. All the company's business activities are concentrated in a recently built complex, with sophisticated industrial equipment. Here the products are designed, carefully manufactured, 100% tested and dispatched throughout the world. And here a team of technicians and salespeople work with passion to consolidate the present success and build an even more brilliant future.
Look where we are.
The pride of an Italian-made product
During its history, packed with inventions and successful products, Clay Paky has always had to face the onslaught of copy makers throughout the world. However, it has always reacted by bringing out endless innovations and, especially, by pursuing excellent quality through the exclusive use of Italian manufacturing to safeguard company traditions. Quality is not just a word in Clay Paky, but has a physically tangible meaning. It is guaranteed by meticulous control over components, processes and every stage of production until the final product becomes reality.
Respect for the environment (eco-friendliness)
Clay Paky firmly believes in the future and respect for the environment. The company manufactures its products with eco-friendly materials, such as fibre glass, which is also one of the safest and most durable materials that may be used in the presence of heat sources. Clay Paky also strives to minimize energy and material waste at all stages of its production process. Furthermore it is Clay Paky's policy to design and develop products that maximize luminous efficacy to reduce consumption to a minimum.
Careful choice of materials, strict final quality control
Incoming materials are carefully monitored, selected and rejected if the strict technical specifications laid down by Clay Paky are not satisfied. Quality control on raw materials is often undervalued by other companies, but it is a true “added value” at Clay Paky. All products destined for the market are carefully inspected at Clay Paky. These tests are fundamental for the quality standard Clay Paky guarantees its customers, since performing strict tests on each single product is the only way to prove the final product works perfectly.
Clay Paky not only assures the quality of finished products and raw materials: the whole production process is certified by internationally recognized bodies. The certified operations include the design, production, sales and marketing of professional lighting products. Clay Paky aims to improve the efficiency of its quality management system constantly and increase the satisfaction of all its customers.
