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.
Our 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, we received an enquiry to adapt one of our confectionery drying rooms to the production of lead acid batteries for the curing of the lead pasted plates.
Although puzzled, our experience in drying, combined with that of the battery manufacturer in curing, showed this possibility and opened a brand new market where we entered on tiptoe.
