Steel is an Italian company with a long family heritage. Situated in Carpi near Bologna and founded in 1999, it is owned and run by the Po family, who are the third generation to be involved in the production of range cooking equipment. The original company was set up by Angelo Po in 1922 and his craftsmanship in stainless steel helped produce the first hand made stoves and later, the production of high quality appliances for restaurants. Today Steel has come to the forefront of the manufacture of range cookers and hoods for the domestic market. Innovation and functionality are the byword for Steel’s aesthetic designs and professional approach to kitchen products. As Steel has grown, so has the importance of their own brand names such as Genesi, Ascot and Sintesi and there is also a range of semi-professional barbecues and out-door cooking equipment.
