ipa is a leading company in the field of PVC compound since 1969, when it was founded by Mr Vincenzo Paolini in Porto D’ Ascoli, and then moved to the new plant in Ancarano one year later, when the company was already registering 3.000 tons of production per year.
In the early 80’s, Vipa invested on an advanced production system based on an automated vertical lay-out totally renewed in the early 90’s, when it was also set up a modern Laboratory for Research & Development.
In 1995 the Quality Assurance System was certified according to the standard ISO 9002; in 2003 it was updated in compliance with ISO 9001:2000.
In 2005 all Hardware and Software Systems were completely renewed.
Since 2010, the Laboratory has been continually improved with further and more advanced equipment; most of the extruders, dosing devices and production machineries have been replaced; the production area and stock capacity of raw materials (liquid and solid ingredients) have been expanded as well as the Hardware and Software Systems have been completely upgraded to reach a higher quality level.
Today the company has a production capacity of over 35.000 tons of PVC compounds per year, and with a consolidated sales network of experienced staff and sales agents throughout Europe and over the world, Vipa is able to satisfy the most different requests for a wide range of applications for PVC and other connected techno polymers.
