Founded in 1984 from the encounter of two young entrepreneurs, the partnership started its activity with a small production of modular fences, seating, benches, litter bins and cycle racks, characterized by innovative design and audacious colors.
During the formative years, the commercial success obtained in Italy and abroad, pushed the firm to a constant search and experimentation in design, materials and in the manufacturing processes: progressively, the range of products increased, with new products arriving including shelters for public transport, barriers, bollards, advertising supports, public illumination, pods and much more.
When the new Millennium began, the market grows and Metalco does too: between 1999 and 2000 a new 25,000 sq.m manufacturing and commercial headquarters opened utilizing the most advanced technologies within the sector.
