The Company 

The first 85 years: the future of the Company

Founded in 1928 in Brescia by Renzo Torchiani, the company began its activity producing home detergents, in particular the famous “lye”. The company has increasingly extended the production, offering chemicals for industry, agriculture, and other economic sectors. Currently the company is headed by the third generation of the Torchiani family. It has recently launched a process of development with acquisitions and takeovers aimed at expanding its market and business area which currently covers the North-Centre of Italy.
