Plados S.p.A. is founded, with the aim of producing kitchen sinks in composite material. In a short time, the company manages to conquer an important position in the international scenario.
Inauguration of the new headquarters in Montecassiano (MC) of about 10,000 square meters.
The companies PLADOS and TELMA (the latter, born in 1981, was the first Italian company to produce composite sinks) join their forces and experiences, giving life to one of the most advanced production centres of composite material sinks in the world.
Plados-Telma Group is the first company in the world to propose the antibacterial sink able to inhibit the development of microorganisms, thanks to the use of silver ions.
Inauguration of the new raw material production plant, developed with cutting-edge technology and fully automated. The facility has a total surface area of 3,500 square metres.
ARIAPURA: The sink that breathes.
Plados-Telma group presents the sink that helps to purify the air in the kitchen environment. Thanks to titanium dioxide nanoparticles and their photocatalytic action, ARIAPURA sinks can perform a triple action:
The company obtains an important recognition from the European Commission. The Green sinks project (production of ecological sinks with recycled raw materials) has been approved and financed by the LIFE programme, the European Community's environmental fund. It is one of the 12 Italian industrial projects financed by Europe during the two-year period 2013-2015.
Introduction of nanoSTONE, the new Plados-Telma material with the best mechanical and aesthetic characteristics that a composite sink can have. Thanks to innovative high-tech mineral charges able to bind together in a three-dimensional lattice, the structure of the sink is reinforced from the inside and the surface is silky to the touch.
