50 years on the road

On November 24, 2017 Iterchimica reached an important milestone by celebrating 50 years of activity. For the occasion, a tensile structure was set up in the Suisio company square that hosted more than 200 people. The day began with a speech by Gabriele Giannattasio, founder of Iterchimica, who, after illustrating the beginnings of the business, underlined how the company has always aimed at research and development of products and technologies that improve the characteristics and the performance of the asphalt. The children Alessandro and Mariella joined this discussion of research and innovation, speaking about the growing internationalization of the company and the increasingly significant collaboration of the latter with universities, educational institutions and research laboratories. The morning then continued with a convention which was also attended by the Hon. Del Basso De Caro, undersecretary of the Ministry of Infrastructure, the Mayor of Suisio, Dr. Giuseppe Casali and the CEO Federica Giannattasio, who finally underlined the company's commitment to developing sustainable solutions that reduce environmental impact and which allow asphalt to be recycled endlessly. Subsequently, a guided tour of the plants and the three chemical/technological laboratories allowed the participants to delve deeper into the production reality and the research and development activity. The event concluded with a demonstration of paving colored asphalt cold made with 100% milled material. The open day, organized to celebrate the "road" traveled to date, therefore represented an opportunity to talk about innovation and new challenges with the hope of growing for another 50 years.
