ICEA was founded in 1956 as a textile wipers and cotton waste producer. Its many years in the industry has enabled ICEA to acquire an in-depth knowledge and experience in the industrial cleaning industry. In the 1980´s it was one of the first Italian companies to anticipate the research in environmentally friendly products and produced its first non-woven wipers by utilising re-generated cotton fibers. Pannotex had an immediate success and soon became a European reference point for large retailers in the industrial cleaning industry. Presently, ICEA is able to offer a complete range of environmentally friendly domestic and professional cleaning products, protective masks, disposable overalls, paper articles and hygiene and safety equipment for the work place.
