Fourty years of challenges at all temperatures
Our history shows what we can do for you
For our company, the 1980s were marked by a decade of growth, consisting of experience and major projects. Collaborating and comparing ourselves to world renowned business enterprises and designers, helped form the team’s capability and character which, at the start of a new decade, decided to take a new risk.
Thanks to our knowledge of the product and the network of contacts with the leading manufacturers in the industry, we started the last decade of the century by reinventing ourselves as direct manufacturers. The reason behind this choice was a question of quality: continuing to manage the assembly with internal staff, teaming up young technicians and professionals with significant experience and passion.
This was the decisive year which held a major challenge: the direct production of insulated panels. A risky gamble, but one backed by know-how, resources and solid foundations. The goal was to design and manufacture unique products for refrigeration in order to fulfil every single customer request, ensuring control at every stage of processing: design, production and assembly.
The new century started with the inauguration of new headquarters and a new production plant. Drawing on our past, looking to the future: rethinking, expanding and optimising production processes. Improvement was the watchword. The result was a new system for producing and joining panels to achieve maximum performance.
The optimisation of production and management processes allowed us to obtain UNI EN ISO 9001 Quality System Certification. An acknowledgement that rewarded our hard work and highlighted how far we had come.
We set our sights on southern Italy by creating a design hub to oversee the agri-food industry in Sicily. A flourishing and varied market which called for high-performance preservation and processing systems.
The gamble taken in 1996 had paid off. Thanks to the care, flexibility and high level achieved, we became a wide-ranging company, chosen by major customers who required ad hoc, highly efficient solutions.
This was the year of the Tunisian company. Branching out in a new continent, we opened our first office in Tunisia. A presence required to respond to a market, like the one in Africa, which was undergoing major expansion, especially in the agri-food sector.
We were the first Italian company to obtain product certification and authorisation to apply CE marking to our panels, in compliance with the requirements of UNI EN 14509. Another important result, confirming our internal policies and our constant commitment to improvement.
In collaboration with Dow, a leading company in the Chemical industry, we developed the PASCAL™ PRO polyurethane system: an innovative technology which offers exceptional insulation performances in the production of panels for cold storage rooms. The new system increased production speed by 40%, reduced density by 10% and increased the thermal insulation capability by 5%.
2016 marked a new step towards the future with the management of production processes, orders and deliveries in view of Industry 4.0. Timeliness, precision, control: it is imperative to computerise, manage and analyse all the stages in an integrated manner. The result is real-time control of the performance and time frames of all the stages. An advantage for us, an additional guarantee for our customers.
Innovating, today, also means knowing how to communicate your uniqueness with a contemporary approach. So, 2017 was the year of restyling: a new logo, a new coordinated image, a new site and new integrated communications. Cosma Impianti revamped its image, but with the same values as always.
The desire to improve and build up experience in every single partnership is the path that has led us to this point. Reciprocating the commitment and trust of our customers is a constant challenge, but one that we face with enthusiasm, innovation and creativity. It is with this spirit that we pursue future projects and challenges, with the certainty that we can make a difference.
