Established at Besso in 1958, with a different company name, Taiana SA deals in timber trade, and parquet and ceiling installation.

Only after 1978 did the company experience significant growth.
In 1962 the company moved to Manno and became a limited company. At the time the company was working exclusively at local level even if it had started dealing in building materials.

Only after 1978 did the company experience significant growth.

Sarà solo dopo il 1978 che la società conosce un vero e proprio sviluppo.

Thanks to a new Board of Directors and to a more dynamic management, the company developed new sectors and found new markets; tripling the number of employees and sales in a few years, and becoming one of the largest and most important companies in its field in Switzerland.

In 1984 its great expansion necessitated a move to new premises, which were bigger and more modern, equipped with 2 railway links and allowed modern activities. In 1988 it definitively left the old and now obsolete premises.

In 1985 a new selling point was opened at Novaggio, later integrated with a new branch at Madonna del Piano, in the lively Malcantone area.

The economical general slowdown of the 90s brought a new challenge.

In 1997, a new department dealing with technical chemical building products was started.

In these years, the supply and installation of floors, ceilings and woodwork was extended throughout Switzerland and even abroad.

In 2000 the company, comtinuing to grow, took over Manufatti di Cemento SA and the building material department of Veragouth SA, two well established companies of the region.

In 2003, in cooperation with Pircher Oberland, Taiana SA opened an exhibition and selling point of ourdoor and street furniture.

In 2004 a well stocked hardware store intended mainly for carpenters opened.

At the end of 2007 the company sold the sector of installation of floors and ceilings, focusing on and further expanding its sales areas.
