Renato Borricelli, President of Ilpa Adesivi, began his career at SAM Abrasives, as a sales manager of the company. With his technical studies and his vocation for the ingenuity of new production processes, SAM Abrasivi chose him as Technical Director with the birth of the company’s first production product. Initially first products were dedicated only to the abrasive sector. His market intuition helped him to perceive new neccesities of different types of products.
Thus, “JOLLY” the mastic for marble was produced. His entrepreneurial desire and growth let him to create a business company with the owner of SAM ABRASIVI, Mr. Franco Cutrignelli. It is precisely from this important and significant collaboration that ILPA ADESIVI came to life. Initially, the production was focused only on mastics for marble but the continuous desire for innovation and growth led to the implementation of the range of products for the marble sector with the addition of waxes, resins and water-based products.
The success of the market matches the inalienable desire for technological extension in production with the inauguration of two new product lines dedicated to automotive and nautical. With this philosophy, a real corporate identity was created in over 50 countries around the world associated with Made in Italy and in the search for continuous improvement of the production process. The constant study of raw materials and market needs have led ILPA to continue investing in research, implementing two internal chemical laboratories, capable of designing and testing new products.
In 2011, the neccesity for the creation of a board of directors arose within ILPA ADESIVI, therefore, the role of Sole Director passed to his son Amedeo Borricelli as CEO. With this decision, the Board of Directors proudly and honorably appointed Renato Borricelli as President of ILPA ADESIVI, a figure he covered in 2019 with a great entrepreneurial spirit and an enormous propensity to change while remaining faithful to the ILPA ADESIVI soul.
