Company profile

Sideuro is a leader in the trade of iron and steel products, with particular reference toElectrolytic Tinplate (ETP), Electrolytic Chrome-Coated Steel (ECCS), andBlack Plate (BP) in coils, sheets and strips.

Our offices in the centre of Milan manage the planning and checking of orders for clients at all stages, as well as all administrative and financial aspects of the company.




Established in 1999 Sideuro Srl is the successful combination of Piero Mancuso's 10-year experience in management, current Chairman and CEO, and his business partner Salvatore Pernice, current Commercial Director and CEO.

Co-Founders and friends, the two pillars of the company unified their knowledge about iron and steel industry to give birth to a prosperous trade of Electrolitic Tinplate Steel and Tin Free Steel (or Electrolytic Chrome Coated Steel).

Ever since the company establishment, the leading market has been food and beverage packaging, whose icons are Open Top Can and Crown Cork.   

Sideuro Srl has been characterised by an average growth of 10% per year and reached a peak in 2019 of 42 million euros.

The Thirty-year experience of managers and Co-Founders, together with the staff commitment, and the continuous development of long-term strategic partnership are the success factor of our growth.

Thanks to a wide sales network, covering the whole Italian territory, as well as key accesses within and outside EU, Sideuro guarantees the client satisfaction.

The high quality/price ratio of Our offering and the capacity to process 80 thousand tons, plus a long-term partnership with excellence in transportation, made real an average flow of 4/5 thousand tons per month.

The goal We gained in 2019 was 50 thousand tons delivered to the end customer.

In addition to its sales activities, Sideuro offers services of cutting and trimming of ETP and ECCS able to achieve custom shapes and sizes.
This is possible thanks to Our historic agreements with in situ service centers.

Inside Italy or outside it, the proximity to the end customer and the direct dialog with every stakeholder assure a rapid and agile response to customer requirements.



Electrolytic tinplate (ETP)

Electrolytic tinplate, the oldest metal packaging material used for food preservation, is a thin sheet of steel evenly coated through electroplating with a thin layer of tin (of variable thickness), which makes the steel highly resistant to oxidation and corrosion.

The material is also suitable for welding and paint and litographs stick well to it: these features make electrolytic tinplate a versatile product, used in various commodities sectors for several purposes, such as the production of food cans, paint buckets, aerosol cans, and decorative boxes for cosmetics, tea, coffee and biscuits.



Thin strips of metal, obtained directly from electrolytic tinplate or electrolytic chrome-coated steel coils through “slitting”, are used in a number sectors to produce items such as gaskets for cars, filters, components for boxes and in the paper manufacturing industry.


Electrolytic chrome-coated steel (ECCS)

Electrolytic chrome-coated steel is a thin sheet of steel which is coated with chromium oxide through electroplating.

Lithographs and paint stick well to the product, but it is not suitable for welding; it is therefore used mainly for non-welded components for metal packaging.

Electrolytic chrome-coated steel has a number of uses. For example, it is used to make the lids and bottoms of food cans, crown corks and twist-off lids for glass jars.


Black plate (BP)

Black plate is a thin, cold-rolled sheet of steel that is not coated with anything and is the base metal for the production of electrolytic tinplate and electrolytic chrome-coated steel.

The main features of this material are its high resistance to oxidation and metalworking, and that it can be coated at a later stage with tin or chrome or painted directly.

The product is mainly used to make vats for industrial use.


Zinc and aluminum-coated steel

Sideuro also sells laminated zinc and aluminium-coated steel sheets of various industrial uses.

Sideuro has always worked according to a strategy based on cooperation and partnership. Our network concept has allowed us to build long-term business relationships over the years in the fields of supplies, processing, logistics and transport.

Our company has consolidated supply relationships with both national steel manufacturers and European and Asian manufacturers, with a purchasing power of 50,000 tonnes of raw material per year, which could be extended with the cooperation of the best steel manufacturers

Sideuro take advantage of the collaboration with Pernice Ltd for several commercial and logistics activities such as :

  • Customers’ needs analysis in the southern Italian and foreign markets
  • Visiting existing/potential customers
  • Logistics operations coordination (unloading, handling, delivery to service centers/customers)
  • Overseeing of the material processing at service centers (production status and material quality)
  • Coordination of the deliveries to customers and taking care of the post-sales  




We believe that a big company’s virtue lies in its respect for the environment, health and codes of conduct. This is why our contracts refer to the international codes of conduct drawn up by the main international trade organisations.

We also engage in a number of non-profit initiatives, using our national and international experience to make a solid contribution to local communities.

This is why Sideuro works with and supports non-profit organisation “Forza di Vivere”, which was established in 1973 and provides support for people with cancer and their loved ones all over the world.
