Group

The Group and the Founder

Veroniki Holding was established in 2010 by Dr. Veronica Daniela Gusa de Dragan as the sole coordinating organization of the Dragan Group, which has been operating since 1948, when Professor Iosif Constantin Dragan founded the Butangas company. Prof. Dragan, born in Lugoj (Romania), after graduating in Law at Bucharest University, moved to Italy in 1940 thanks to a scholarship granted by the Italian Institute of Culture in Bucharest.

He graduated for the second time in Political Science and Economics in Rome. At that time, he sensed the great potential of the Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), a product almost unknown after WWII, and decided to found ButanGas Spa in Italy. In the following years, Prof Dragan developed his activity in Europe.

Veroniki Holding was conceived to carry out strategical and control duties as well as technical, administrative and financial coordination for the subsidiaries in Italy and abroad. Nowadays, the Group operates in Italy, Greece, Romania, Germany, Poland, Austria, Serbia, Spain and France.
