About us

Our history

The company was founded in 1996 to meet the customers’ requirements so to receive original spare parts with better ways and shorter times than the standard offer.

A path built on the decades of Piero Zanoni’s experience in the ceramic sector, the pioneering attitude of the sons Gian Luca and Paolo, respectively a management engineer and mechanical one.

Today the vision that drives INTER SER choices is to establish an ever closer collaboration with its international customers and partners in the Sassuolo district in order to create solutions that fully meet the challenges of the business.


INTER SER becomes a strategic business partner for 23 tile manufacturers among the 25 most important in the world.

The administrative headquarters of INTER SER is in Vercelli, between Milan and Turin, while the warehouse and the logistics department are based in Sassuolo (MO), the center of the Italian ceramic industry.
