Aquatechnik was founded in Italy in the early 1980s after current president and founder Lino Petenà’s extensive experience in the hydro-thermal-sanitary sector, with the purpose of introducing a new system of pipes and fittings on the market for plants in plastic material as an alternative to conventional galvanised pipes. The fusio-technik welded system was successful from the start and already in 1984, the company had to expand its facilities to adapt to the sales levels it had reached.
The first headquarters was a warehouse of about 1000m2 located in Busto Arsizio. At the beginning of the 90s, learning centres were built to spread knowledge about their systems through meetings for installers and technicians in the sector and the company moved to Magnago, Milan, where it remains to date, stretching over an area of 60,000m2 , of which 15,000 are covered. The company, which was created with the single purpose of selling and distributing the product, took its first steps towards production and began sales activities abroad. In the new millennium, Aquatechnik established itself with a completely original patented connection system between multilayer pipes and PPSU fittings: the safety system. Presented initially in a brass-plastic version (safety-metal) and later with a fitting made entirely in plastic (PPSU), it was received enthusiastically both at a national and international level.
The productive capacity today is about 6,000 tonnes/ year of PP-R for pipe production and the production potential is greater than 20,000,000 metres/year of multilayer pipe. The injection moulding department produces up to 80,000,000 parts/year. The production site has worked according to excellent quality standards in compliance with the ISO 9001 standards starting from the early 90s.
