The dates that have made the history of our course.
The company was founded in 1991, when the brothers Totò and Angelo Gatto helped meet the growing demand for plastic tanks in Sicily - where Ecoplast is based.
Thus began the production of the first 20 liter items, used for the collection of water and oil, and then offer the whole range within the next five years.
In the late 1990s, production lines were increased with watering cans, buckets and basins, along with traditional products a new series of recycled plastic items - including the bucket used by masons.
This is a significant year for Ecoplast: we buy about eighty moulds from a competitor's domestic sector. The company also began producing oval basin, kitchen containers, trays and other recycled plastic items, such as agricultural baskets and waste bins.
We reach international markets by exhibiting our products for the first time at the Frankfurt Environmental Fair, the most prestigious in the sector in Europe. In the same year we increased the assortment of bins and obtained an exclusive distribution in Sicily and Sardinia.
The meeting with Marco Maggioni, internationally renowned designer and winner of major awards (16 Compasso d’Oro ADI e 16 Biennal of Industrial Design, to name a few) allowed us to redefine the aesthetic qualities, functional and sensory Ecoplast products reinforcing the design made in Italy. Since then we have been aiming at the "aesthetics of profit - quoting Marco - in its refined expression".
Now known on the market, we take part in the Ecomondo and Ifat fairs and other industrial events held in Germany, Romania, France, Japan and Italy.
In recent years, we have focused our attention and energy on reducing the environmental impact by optimising production systems and using more than 80% of recycled plastic. Photovoltaics generate 30% of the electricity used by our factories. We have ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications.
Ecoplast products are distributed in Italy, the Netherlands, Korea, Portugal, Malta, Japan and other countries around the world for the purpose of exporting quality, functionality and style.
