Pinco SA is a manufacturing company that includes different ranges of products: drying rooms for soft confectionery and curing chambers to serve the market of lead acid battery production.
Although these two markets are light-years away from each other, they have some common points that made this strange combination possible.
The story starts in the early Seventies, when the company developed its first drying room for soft confectionery. A new design with innovative technical solutions quickly made the name of the company well known to jelly manufacturers in search of a way to improve the quality of their products. Just like today, the aim was to dedicate any efforts to designing high quality plants that combined flexibility, reliability, process consistency and – last but not least – savings.
But life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans…
In the mid-Nineties, Pinco received an enquiry to adapt one of the confectionery drying rooms to the production of lead acid batteries for the curing of the lead pasted plates.
Although puzzled, the experience in drying, combined with that of the battery manufacturer in curing, showed this possibility and opened a brand new market.
Nowadays, Pinco SA is the leading manufacturer and a reference name for both markets.
In the last decade, Pinco SA had the foresight to anticipate the global demand to reduce the energy consumption in production processes, in order to develop the first energy recovery system for the drying process.
Lower energy demand means of course lower process costs but especially means a reduction of pollution and better environment impact, for the good of all.
