40 years of industrial know-how and an international presence in more than 140 countries. Direct production with facilities in Italy, USA, Mexico, Spain and Brasil, and more than 700 employees around the world.

The firm started with Mr Rosario Giuffrè with son Carmelo and brother Cono, who founded Siplast in 1974 in the delightful town of Capo d’Orlando, between the mountains and the sea in the province of Messina. At that time the firm had 18 employees and the main activity consisted in the production of PVC blinds. The young Carmelo Giuffre begins to hatch the idea that the future was in irrigation and water conservation.

That intuition, now allows the Irritec to distribute its products in more than 140 countries in the world, counting more than 700 employees and production facilities in Italy, Spain, United States, Mexico and Brazil. In addition, the recent opening of the stock of Ulm in Germany is in addition to strategic deposits of Bologna and Algiers.

In 40 years Irritec has grown steadily while maintaining a solid foundation and important innovations in the field of irrigation. In 4 decades there have been numerous Italian companies that have chosen the products Irritec for their crops with the assurance that the quality and professionalism would never ceased to exist.

Irritec is one of the first groups in Italy to introduce environmental protection systems, continually bringing in new measures and promoting policies for the handling and recycling of waste.

Water has become a resource as valuable as oil: 70-80% of available water is used for agriculture, while only 15% is used for industry; the remainder is domestic use.

These figures may be interesting for those who wish to make a profit in specific areas, but first and foremost they demonstrate the importance of conscientious and honest water use: with two-thirds of the world’s population suffering water shortages, avoiding the problem would be like turning our backs on our planet and casting its future into doubt.

This is why, together with like-minded groups who share a commitment to world health, we strive to achieve our objective: to contribute to limiting the water crisis in the coming years. We are convinced that there can be no realistic environmental development without taking into account a more balanced use of water resources; and so, by bringing together Irritec’s long-standing experience in the sector, we have played our part in revolutionising the concept of irrigation in Italy and the world, introducing innovative solutions – from tubing and driplines to plastic connectors – focusing our attention on drip and micro drip irrigation.

Experts in the field understand what a revolution this has been: they can now extract maximum profit by using small quantities of water to nourish and water the soil precisely and efficiently; in only a short space of time the traditional methods have fallen by the wayside.

Irritec is one of the first Italian groups to introduce environmental protection systems.  In addition to the ISO-9001 certification gained by Irritec, the company boasts certification for quality and environmental management to standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, and continually introduces new measures for safeguarding the ecosystem as well as policies for the handling and recycling of waste.

Ongoing investment in research benefits from expert professionals in the sector and state-of-the-art technologies.

The use of methods and technologies which are constantly updated to keep pace with rapidly changing product developments brings together Irritec’s stengths and is essential in terms of the company’s investment in research.

The Research & Development department consists of various professionals – selected among leading experts in their fields – who work together to keep abreast of the environmental and pedoclimatic situations in the locations where Irritec solutions are addressed.

Each year substantial investment is made in human resources and technology in this area. Agronomists, hydraulic engineers, environmental consultants and designers, with a game plan which never loses sight of the corporate philosophy, love for the environment, work in collaboration, interacting with Production and with Clients and matching their know-how with the most relevant international players in the sector as well as major universities and research centres.

From this process come continual refinements and new generations of products, improving the system’s efficiency and extending to an ever-widening sphere of application.
