We have been anticipating the future for more than 60 years.
Arcoplex was founded in 1958 in Seregno (Monza-Brianza). It was founded by Pierluigi Brenna, who, ahead of his time, saw the revolutionary technical potential of plastics in many advanced industrial applications.
Continuous research, a focus on innovation in all stages of the process and attention to the market are three pillars of the company’s growth strategy, rapidly positioning itself as a nationally and internationally recognised player.
Consultants before suppliers
Starting in the 1990s, Arcoplex started to extensively transform its organisational model under the impetus of Giacomo Scanzi, who joined the company in 1994 as general manager before becoming managing director in 2004.
A new business model was developed with a focus on technical product consultation as a service preceding any sales negotiations.
Our strengths lie in experience, training and knowledge of the industry, qualities that allow us to expand our sales network and approach the market in a completely different way.
In 2007, we renovated the company headquarters in Pontirolo Nuovo (Bergamo), in the heart of northern Italy’s largest chemical district. Arcoplex quickly expanded its product and service portfolio with the important acquisition of Primacolor Srl and Raiex Spa in 2011, increasing production capacity. Between 2013 and 2014, the operating structure was reconfigured with the foundation of subsidiaries Resinmix Srl and Powderex Srl.
The Bergamo hub was expanded in 2018, becoming the headquarters for all company operations. This to the creation of a new semi-automatic warehouse with power supplied by a nearly 3000-m² photovoltaic system, which is capable of covering a large part of our operational needs.
In 2019, the subsidiaries merged into one, creating Arcoplex Group Srl as it is today.
A company from another generation
Today’s values remain those of the company’s beginnings. Including the commitment to always place relationships first. As it has grown, Arcoplex has kept its family business model intact, both in contacts with partners and suppliers and in its relations with employees.
All this without ceasing to look at the younger generations. In 2015, the company initiated a gradual generational transition extending to all managerial roles, in order to maintain a dynamic attitude and always remain one step ahead.
This was inaugurated by Giacomo Scanzi himself, who, while retaining his position as CEO of the company, passed on the roles of general manager and commercial director to his children Giulia and Carlo, laying the foundations for a new path for a company that always aims to go further.
