Why “Xylema”?

The xylem is a plant tissue present in vascular plants and used for the conduction of the raw sap, that contains water and solutes dissolved, from the roots to the leaves. Its function is fundamental as it is at the basis of chlorophyll photosynthesis, a process that, as known, allows plants to live and develop.

"Xylema Consulting" was born with this same purpose: to assist and support companies in development and growth, acting as a "channel" and "guide" in a whole series of activities and processes in which the contribution of "new elements" that will turn into lifeblood.
