Metalco is a company internationally known for its production of street furniture and pods. 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, characterised by innovative design and audacious colours.
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 utilising the most advanced technologies within the sector.
To keep Metalco at the fore front of the industry a technical department and a R&D division was set up, which is constantly committed with the development of new products. Over the years the firm has developed and keeps developing many prestigious collaborations: worldwide famous architects and designers like Antonio Citterio, Pininfarina, Marc Aurel, Alessandro Lenarda and many others, have signed products and collections for Metalco.
Result: Metalco today boasts the broadest existing range of street and outdoor furniture and metallic modular fences, known in over 4.000 cities across 32 Countries.
