Our History


Aquatechnik was founded in the early 80s after current president and founder Lino Petenà’s extensive experience in the hydro-thermal-sanitary sector, with the purpose of introducing a new system of pipes and fittings on the market for plants in plastic material as an alternative to conventional galvanised pipes.

2019

The fusio-technik fibre-reinforced pipes are now produced with WOR (White Oxidation Resistance) technology.

2019

ISO14001 Certification

2019

Widening of the safety range up to 90 mm, new fibrereinforced pipes SDR17,6

2018

R & D Center modernising and extending Widening of the range fusio-technik FIBER pipes with UVRES (with high resistance to the direct sunlight) and FIRES (with high resistance to the flame)

2016

A Soundproof Room is installed at the Training Center in Busto Arisizio: it measures flow, power absorption and noise of three systems in comparison

2013

Iso-technik system is born: PUR pre-insulated pipe system for the Heating/Cooling district

2013

A new production area is completed: 3400 sm.

2012

The universal system, the new generation of multi-jaw press-fittings that are fully made with synthetic material (PPSU).

2011

Extension of the fusio-technik range and faser pipes ut to 250 mm

2010

Safety fittings till diameter 75

2009

Complete range of manifolds made of PA-M

2008

New PPSU fittings up to diameter 63

2007

The modular manifold serie grows up till the diameter 32. As regards the fusio-technik system, the new faser FIBER-T pipe, reinforced with special fibres, is introduced

2006

The safety system becames wider with the new diameter 50. The new PPSU modular manifolds are introduced into the market.

2005

The studies on the safety system improve its quality and the fittings series becomes larger. Actually, the safety system is a complete range from diameter 14 up to 40 mm.

2004

The introduction of the new and patented safety system is immediately a success in Italy, in Europe and all over the world.

2003

A new fitting, completely made of plastics (PPSU), starts to be produced.

2001

The safety-metal system is introduced into the market: this is a new fitting made of plastics and brass for multi-layer pipes.

1999

Aquatechnik is a European presence; the research laboratory is further developed and we begin studying a new fitting system for multi-layer pipes, with its equipment.

1998

A new system for water conveyance and heating is introduced: the multi-calor pipes with com-press and press-fitting systems. In this period, the trade abroad is starting.

1997

The production seat is enlarged through the introduction of a new highly automatized moulding area.

1995

Sensational sales are registered in this year: more than 12 millions meters of PP-R pipes on the Italian market only.

1993

The firm develops so successfully that a productive seat in Magnago becomes necessary: the new and modern production seat for the extrusion.

1991

The company is moved to Magnago (MI).

1990

New training centers are arranged to promote the piping systems through technical meetings and trainings to installers and technicians.

1989

Thanks to the great success and the consequent development, Aquatechnik company becomes the Italian reference for PP-R systems. A new commercial seat has to be built, bigger than the previous one.

1987

Aquatechnik is growing up in Italy and develops a complete commercial network.

1985

Aquatechnik was born (then with a different name) to distribute the PP-R pipes and a new heating system with radiant panels. The original seat was a 1000 smq shed in Busto Arsizio.

1984

The development of PP-R is such that the old site is no longer appropriate to the marketing of this product, thus the expansion of facilities began.

1983

The piping system meets the first commercial success in Italy.

1982

The founder of the group Lino Petenà, owner of a distribution company of hydro-thermal sanitary products, began working with a German company, in order to introduce a new system of pipes and fittings for sanitary plant-engineering made of polypropylene random copolymer (PP-R) into the Italian market.
