During the most in-famous year of recent global crisis, CENTAURO S.r.l. boldly moved forward, investing more resources to build itself a brand new 70KW solar plant on the very roof of its facility, thus dramatically contributing to protecting our planet.


In this pivotal year, CENTAURO S.r.l. moved to a brand new facility in Agrate Brianza (Milan), thus expanding its production lines to some 2.000 sqm.


The precious craftmanship and experience of another small Italian company was implemented through the acquisition of Pressenda s.n.c. from Pordenone; thus CENTAURO S.r.l. could successfully launch the production of flat and preshaped membranes for the automotive sector (pressure adaptors). A dedicated aftermarket was then created for this very industrial sector.


The first official Internet site was launched.

The Company was certified with the ISO9001 Quality Management System and promptly implemented it in its very manufacturing and management processes and procedures. This achievement immediately boosted quality and effectiveness standards throughout the Company


Following an outstanding success, CENTAURO S.r.l. took over Javello, a small production facility in Milan, Italy. The precious know-how of the latter, as long as its machinery, raw material stocks and existing clients, were thus absorbed by CENTAURO S.r.l. in its brand new prodution facility in Agrate Brianza.


After a quick and quite dramatic growth, well-known CENTAURO S.r.l. decided to move to a much bigger facility, leaving Arcore (Milan) to Concorezzo (Milan). This offered the long-seeked chance of improving and expanding machinery and equipment.


Driven by the strong will to tackle bigger and bigger segments of the market, CENTAURO S.r.l. took over Fagim, a small production facility in Milan, Italy. The precious know-how and craftmanship of this company was thus absorbed and implemented in our bigger industrial reality.

CENTAURO s.n.c. was launched in July 1958 and started doing business in the very private residence of Mr. Rustici. One of the oldest and most successful gasket manufacturing companies was born. Arcore, near Milan, Italy, proved to be a strategic location for the company, offering quick and easy outreach possibilities toward very important clients like Piaggio and Gilera. CENTAURO soon became their main supplier, adopting its Greek mythology-based company name, inspired motorcycle riders and bikers alike.

The mythological creature’s shield was then replaced with a globe to symbolize the International character of the Company.
