The idea

Background

Chalibria comes from the Latin word “Chalybs” which means steel, iron. The chalybes get their name from this word, as they were a tribe of blacksmiths from ancient times to whom historians trace the invention of steelmaking. Chalibria originated from this idea, which for us represents a journey through time, from the days when steel did not exist, to its current and international reality. The link with the past makes it possible for us to look ahead to the future with greater confidence.

The link with the past makes it possible for us to look ahead to the future with greater confidence. A sustainable, carbon-neutral future as part of the circular economy philosophy that benefits the planet and cuts out waste. Chalibria steel is reliable, safe, and sustainable, because it is a certified carbon-neutral steel according to relevant international standards. It embodies balance, seriousness, and transparency: these are values on which AFV Beltrame Group is built and are the very essence of a new way of understanding steel, as from the ancient forges looks now towards an increasingly sustainable and circular future.

Buying Chalibria is to join a green supply chain and a production system focusing on sustainability, enabling us and our customers to achieve medium- and long-term emissions and environmental impact targets.

Etymology

The word Chalibria comes from the Latin word “chalybs,” which means iron. The word is like a journey through time, from the days when steel did not exist, to its current and international reality. A path that leads to the literal construct with “libra” and gives birth to Chalibria: steel in balance. The logo is made up of an intertwining of three “C’s” meaning “Carbon neutral – Circular – Commitment”.
