SPIG is proud to have a clientele that includes “world class” corporations. Moreover, the Company seeks to maintain the very close business relationships that it has established with many of the top EPC contractors.


The SPIG brand name ( which stands for Società per Impianti Generali ) was launched on the Cooling Market in 1936, by Eng. Fernando Bonati and Eng. Agar Sorbatti, (one of the first ten women engineers in Italy) to design, build and commission cooling systems and cooling towers.
In those years many process industries in Italy, were realized next to coastal areas or lakes and rivers. In fact, they did not use Cooling Towers as it was more economic cooling by using the natural water resource. In the sixties, when restrictions about the water usage and discharge came with the new legislation, SPIG as a pioneer company, had developed already its expertise and technology.

  • In 1997, the Company originally located in Milano, moved to a new headquarters in Arona close to Lago Maggiore.
  • Since 2004 SPIG has undertaken an internationalization process through the establishment of eight subsidiaries based in U.S.A., Brasil, Germany, Romania, Turkey, Russian Federation, U.A.E., India and two production facilities in Brasil and in India.
  • In 2005, the family’s founders fourth generation joined the Company playing an active role.
  • In 2010, an agreement between SPIG and Ambienta SGR, Europe's largest private equity fund specialised in the envirnmental sector, let this last to acquire a minority stake of SPIG. The original family owner will continue running the Company.

Over the years the company’s business has evolved considerably and nowadays SPIG ranks among the leading worldwide players.
