The Polo Group was founded in 1998 in Altamura (Apulia) in the heart of the renowned upholstered furniture industrial district. In its first two years of activity the group focused exclusively on production for third parties. In 2000 the Polodivani brand was born and started developing its own sofa collections. The company immediately started exporting its products into foreign markets, particularly to the UK, which was the biggest European market for Italian upholstery at the time and the company’s first real test. Distribution was then expanded to all major European markets including the Italian market.
