History

A story of constant evolution

2004 – The beginnings

The company was founded focusing on the design and implementation of advanced systems dedicated to climate comfort in every season. Fueled by the passion of the young work team led by Oreste Bottaro – the visionary creator and father of many patented innovations that have made the history of residential air conditioning.

2012 – The turning point

With the arrival of Gianandrea Masserdotti (GAM), the company decided to invest in the creation of its own commercial network, in Italy and abroad, proposing itself with its own solutions both to distribution and to industrial partners for international brand cooperations.

2014 – Major growth

The foreign collaborations lead the company to be present in over 30 countries. A growth path that leveraged the continuous generation of new ideas and projects, such as the adoption of DC Inverter technology for fan coils and the launch of HPAC 2.0 – the air conditioner without external unit.

2016 – The big leap forward

The company presents the first Controlled Mechanical Ventilation (VMC) systems, sensing the potential of that sector. In the same year, the company moved to its current headquarters in Storo, larger and more suitable for supporting business development, with the Research and Development Pavilion inside, where all the innovations of the following years will be created.

2018 – Vision for the future

With the precious contribution of ideas from Hakira Nishikawa, a more complete vision of the future takes shape and the company decides to invest in the world of VMC with the acquisition of a share of a specialized Italian company. The company also acquires a share in a software house dedicated to the development of artificial intelligence systems.

2020 – Another revolution

The company is not satisfied with linear growth but decides to push on the accelerator by deeply renewing all the product lines under the banner of “Each product, a novelty”. STØNE is also launched – the heat pump you no longer have to hide – one of the solutions the company wants to focus on more in the coming years.

2021 – Preparing for Tomorrow

The bad global economic situation of 2020 did not take away the determination and ambition of the company which, at the end of 2020, acquired a neighboring industrial complex: another area for 215,000 sq, ft with a production site of 86,000 sq. ft  lots of new space for the many new ideas in building site!
