Gapi USA

GAPI Group had its beginning in the sixties, more as a guiding idea than as an active group of Companies. At that time, Gapi had a reputation and expanded itself as a manufacturer of O-Rings, developing and industrializing injection moulding technology, finishing operations and post curing of rubber.

In the following years, new products have been developed in the sectors of sealing and fluid containment, in countless different industrial fields. During 1987, GAPI USA was incorporated and began activity as a logistics center for entering into North America markets.

In 1991 was acquired LANZA NUOVA Spa with its product lines of PTFE, thus integrating the product program where was prevailing rubber production.

The building of the Cividino-Italy logistics center was the starting point for a total reorganisation of the Group not only for marketing but also for industrial output.

At the same time Group presence on North Europe markets is strengthened by GAPI GmbH created in Germany.

During 1998, takes place the acquisition of ROLF Spa and the founding of GAPI Ltd in UK, the latter originating by acquiring a part of DSM Polypenco. In 1999, Pradella & Matego enters into the Group and in Germany another part of DSM Polypenco is incorporated into GAPI GmbH.

GAPI evolution from industrial company to chief of an industrial Group is representative of industrial development of East-Bergamo area which evolved from agriculture and one sector industry (textile) to the actual reality. Bergamo has today a sound presence in all industrial sectors.

GAPI Group counts today on 10 production centres and 11 commercial points operating through 4 Logistics Centres.

The philosophy, which since from the beginning has impressed GAPI GROUP evolution, during last years, developed itself and was enriched by the impact of technology and policies protecting the environment and human individuals all over the planet.

Today, in time of globalisation, there is only one world market in which you must fight to become and remain a leader in order to attain profitability and growth through competitiveness and innovation.
