Icaiplast was founded on April 16th 1974 by a group of partners whose entrepreneurial spirit, combined with the deep-rooted industrial culture that makes Vigevano famous around the world for the quality of its shoes, has allowed the company to steadily grow over the years in its chosen sector of producing and selling ecoleather.
The factory, located in the city's industrial quarter, covers an area of 22,000 m2 and produces 2,000,000 linear metres of fabric every year, allowing us to satisfy the varied needs of a market that is constantly growing and evolving.
If you would like to know more about our business, we would be delighted to welcome you to our headquarters.
Our company manufactures and sells PVC and PU (polyurethane) coated fabrics. The materials that we use to make our products comply with the REACH regulation and are chosen from the most advanced that today's market leaders have to offer. The right balance between continuous experimentation and constant dedication allows us to create items which reflect current technological and fashion trends without taking attention away from the clients themselves. We offer our advice, support and discretion to create unique and personalised products.
Each phase of production is monitored and its quality guaranteed, as demonstrated by our EN ISO 9001:2008 certification.
Our company operates with a well-established organisational structure. Projects born in the creative research environment of our laboratories begin to take shape in the department responsible for preparing the PVC and PU mixtures, which includes supervising the blends and colours before coating.
Industrial coating is followed by finishing, printing and embossing, and the manufacturing process ends with a quality inspection of the finished product and delivery to the warehouse where the items are stored ready for shipping. Our administrative and sales departments round out our workforce, helping to coordinate our production so that we can continue to compete in the industry.
Research and development plays a crucial role in our organisation: it represents technological innovation and our growth strategy for the future. The Icaiplast laboratories bring together creative talent and an awareness of market trends. By analysing and testing new raw substances, we undertake to always offer innovative materials at a competitive price. The tools available to us in our laboratories allow us to analyse and improve the chemical and mechanical characteristics of our materials in order to guarantee the best possible performance.
